Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots



Well, since I seem to have a case of insomnia tonight, what do I do, hop on the blog of course, so I figured I'd go ahead and put this up. I'm so excited because after many weeks I am finally able to participate in Kelly's Show Us Your Life. I can't do weddings, can't don't kids rooms, and etc., but I can most certainly do my favorite vacations spots.

So here ya have it, welcome to my favorites:

If you know me well, you know I have a deep love for the mountains of North Carolina and love the State of Tennessee and all things Nashville. These pictures are from a trip a few years ago. There is nothing like the mountains, it's one of the things that make me feel like such a small person, serving such a big God.











North Carolina, where peace truly does flow like a river!




And what can I say about Nashville? It's going to be my home someday. LOVE this city and LOVE country music. So can't have a better combination! :)









See you again soon Nashville! And hopefully permanently :)

My other vacation spot is Long Island, NY. We have family that live there and visit often and it's such a pretty pretty area, and don't have as many pictures to share but these I think capture the beauty of it.

There's a beautiful harbor and it's such a picturesque little town! Kind of a Cape Cod feel. There's some much love and family there and such great memories from over the years. I've shared these before and these are pictures of our most recent trip this year.










The End.

And this seriously makes me want to go on a vacation, haha!!! Well, at the end of this month I will be going to Atlanta and then in September going to Las Vegas. So I'm sure to have some more favorite vacation spots, haha! :)

Go over to Kelly's and let us know what your favorite spots are!!

Oh, the next time you come to Nashville, let me know. Chattanooga is soooo close! :) If you love the mountains, you would love the Chattanooga area for sure.
