Tennessee Me

I've been busy daydreaming about our upcoming camping trip to The Smoky Mountains. 
Busy trying to get everything done before our weekend at one of our favorite places. 
Bono Baby can't wait to sleep in a tent for the first time and walk on crunchy leaves. 
We are hoping to be there for the peak of fall. 

(Smoky Mountain Camping Trip Fall, 2008)

The Secret Sisters' debut cd was released yesterday.
My copy came in the mail.
I am planning on listening to it on our drive through Cades Cove.
But only after we listen to some Dolly Parton.

I am planning to prepare all sorts of fall goodness for this trip.
Tin foil dinners, spiced apple cider, pumpkin something, and fried apples. 
 Am I missing anything?  

love love,

p.s. I spent the afternoon treasure hunting with a new friend. 
I can't wait to show you what I found.

You are an absolute doll. Listen to some Loretta Lynn for me?

my brother will tell you i don't know how to camp out! your menu sounds perfect. how about caramel apples? the colors in the smoky mountains should be incredible. have you listened to "house of gold" yet? it's one of my favorites.

Oh, Lindsey...Carmel apples for sure. I think we will make carmel apple struddle something or another. I can't wait to share with you the colors and pretty things we are going to see in Cade's Cove. It is so beautiful. "House of Gold" is lovely. Dan thinks they are a little too country but I like it. Country isn't my thing but this seems more like gospel, family music that my Grandparents may have listened to. Plus, there voices are amazing and they are beautiful. I think it is the perfect cd for driving around the Smokies.

love love,

What a wonderful trip to take! I just saw a write up of it in Southern Living? Country Living? I would love to go there. Sounds like you are all set to go. I'd bring along a nice baguette and some yummy herb cheese as well.
