what a view

I would like to start out by saying that I live in North Carolina. But I want there to be no mistake that I am a Georgia girl through and through (this could be a post all on its own, but we will save that for another day). That is why I was so happy to see this sign this weekend:
{I promise there was a blue sky behind this sign. I didn't have time to fool with the camera settings since we were stopped in the middle of the road!}

We went to the town of Helen for Michael's family reunion. This was the first time it was held in the mountains and the drive was gorgeous. I wish I could have taken photos of some of the scenes during the drive, but I was a little bit busy trying to keep my nausea to a minimum.

{The view from our room was beautiful. I found myself just sitting a staring out the window.}

During the first day of the reunion we took the kids to Anna Ruby Falls. For those of you who close enough to visit, you should definitely go. It is a very short paved hike up to the falls and it is gorgeous.

{This rock jutted out toward the paved walk and this tree had managed to grow in between it!}

We had a great time at the reunion. And all of our auction items did well. Now that we are back I do find myself craving boiled peanuts and Georgia peaches (there really are none like them). It is a good thing my mama is coming for a visit this weekend!

Helen, Georgia is so quirky and beautiful and awesome!

I know how you feel...I live in Nashville now and probably will for the rest of my life, but Alabama is HOME! I miss it so. I feel the same way every time we drive over the state line. Last time, "Sweet Home Alabama" came on the radio, miraculously, right as we crossed. True story.
