Five years ago, my boyfriend (now husband) and I traveled to North Carolina. I was excited for the beautiful fall colors along Blue Ridge Parkway and in the Great Smoky Mountains, gorgeous waterfalls, and quaint southern towns. I got all of that and more – most importantly, a gorgeous “rock.” Jerod proposed to me on top of Mt. Craig (the second tallest peak east of the Mississippi, since the tallest peak – seen below – was closed for construction). Five years seems like such a long time, because it feels like he’s always been a part of my life, yet five years has flown by. I know five years is just the beginning of our journey, but it’s been a great ride so far!
I’ve spent a lot of time admiring the changing leaves and beautiful fall colors lately. And since the trees are almost to their peak already, you may see even more of these photos from me in the next few days.
Now that it’s October, I feel like I can take photos of all things fall-ish. I’m splitting up my weekend blog post, because my Friday and Sunday photos go together so well. Tomorrow I’ll post Saturday’s photo. I had another busy weekend – I started to type out all the details, but I decided not to bore you. I think these colorful photos are enough.
Sometimes we need to go back to simpler days by doing something as innocent as coloring or painting. We spent yesterday in Topeka doing just that at Potwin Pottery. I think all three of the adults had just as much fun as my seven-year-old nephew!
