Returning to Tennessee – part two

I rose every morning before daybreak to watch the sun rise, hear birdsongs in the trees as I sipped tea. Who’d want to sleep through this?
These gliders were my favorite place to sit to enjoy my view any time of day…..a close second – the hot tub.
Sunrise over Wears Valley
In love with this view.
The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare meals (except my cast iron skillet which I brought with me) as well as peppers and herbs from my garden. You may notice 3 bottles of red wine, those would be mine. 🍷
Cozy cabin
Dreamy bed, slept like a baby each night which is rare for me, so restorative.
Jacuzzi tub, perfect for a daily soak. #relaxationisgood

Returning to Tennessee – part one

After an absence of three years, I returned to Wears Valley. This was a favorite destination for many vacations that Spence and I enjoyed. Since losing him I hadn’t been back but the Smoky Mountains were patiently waiting for me. When I found a beautiful home on VRBO, I knew the timing was right to revisit the familiar and make new memories.

This would be my view for the next 10 days.
Beginnings of the first sunset from my deck.
Sunset throwing heavenly hues against the Smoky Mountains.
What a way to end my first day.
I wake up to this peaceful view.

A compilation of photos from my first morning in paradise. Even the air here is different, pure bliss.
