The Man and I have flown the coop. Cabin fever. Chasing autumn. Road trip. However you want to say it, we've been rolling along the highways and plan to end up in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge part of Tennessee a few days from now. I've heard the Smoky Mountain National Park is closed, but that won't keep us from enjoying the places that we love in and around that area.
Our day on the road was long and eventful today. It included a blowout on the tow trailer and a rain storm, but, praise the Lord, as you can see, it ended with a rainbow. There was damage done to the tow trailer, which will be addressed tomorrow, Lord willing.
While traveling brings me great joy, the hard part is saying goodbye to my people, especially the little ones. It'll be my first time to go away for more than a few days since pie's birth, and it's never easy leaving sugar plum.
The day before we left, sugar plum came by and spent a couple hours with us. She loves the motorhome and just had to "drive," don't you know. (That little bun on her head makes me weak inside.) Later that evening, I ate dinner with my beautiful niece and pie. (Check out her adorable bib.) Oh, how I will miss these sweet babies!
As I write, it is Saturday night. Today's ordeal is over. The rain has left the air cool and the skies clear. We are safe and sound, somewhere in Arkansas, feeling blessed and grateful for God's protection on the road. Tomorrow, Lord willing, we'll start again.
Until next time, sweet friends, keep smiling, keep shining, keep on keeping on, and thanks for stopping by to visit. It means a whole lot.
