in God's country

Words to recap this past weekend:


simply amazing.

We went to the Blue Ridge Mountains with my parents, who were in town for a long weekend. The air was crisp, the view breath-taking, and our quaint little cabin was just right. We played games around the fireplace-sipping on hot apple cider, with sweaters on and swaddled in afghans. We munched [a lot!] on chocolate chip cookies and goodies of the like. We grilled out, did some shopping and simply enjoyed the change of scenery and change of pace. We went site seeing and made stops at Blowing Rock, Boone, and Grandfather's Mountain. We were surrounded by incredible views of the mountains and the changing colors of fall.

Here are a few pictures of our weekend get away.
