Back in my happy place for a couple of days! Spent a little time shopping today and tomorrow it is all about nature and πŸ“·  Ready to disconnect for a little while!  #nature #disconnect #gsmnp #greatsmokymountains #hobbyphotographer #naturephotography #wildlifephotography
We hiked the Chimneys for the first time since the fire today and it was still just a beautiful just a little different. More pictures to come, we took a lot but I can’t put them all in one post cause I don’t want them cropped. This one was taken by @joshuadavidb and it’s one of my favorites πŸ”₯ #chimneytops #gsmnp #greatsmokymountains
...the road less traveledβ˜€οΈ
What if spiritual growth was less “what’s next, let’s go” and more “what’s now, here I am.”
This week during my trip to Cades Cove, I was searching for a church that someone told me about!! The church visit is another story!! When leaving the church, the turkey came out of the woods!  A local began telling me that it was a 'white' turkey which I had never seen in the GSMNP!  Since Thanksgiving is upon us, I thought it appropriate to share!  Google says 1 in every 100 wild turkeys is white!  Anyone familiar with 'white' turkeys??πŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒ#thanksgiving #turkeys #turkeytrot #whiteturkey #justalittlesouthern #cadescove #wildlifephotography #tennesseeisbeautiful #exploretennessee #explore_countryside #total_rural #total_rural_animal #pocket_animal #rebels_nature #backroadbum #backroad_visions #country_features #instagramtennessee #naturaltennessee #exploretennessee #getoutsidetn #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokynps #everything_tn #everything_animals

This is where we lived just 3 short years ago.  The house was small, especially for 6 people, but we were happy.  David held a steady job at the city and I had my regular routine job working at a spa.  Life was, well, comfortable.  When we first started dating, we would day dream and talk about how amazing it would be to live in a quaint mountain town, we didn’t know exactly where, but it was fun to think about.... Amidst our far fetched dreams, we continued to live out our life in Texas, going thru the motions, and grateful we had even come this far.  As this vision of running off to the mountains remained in the back of our minds, it began to create a burning desire in our hearts.  One day, on a road trip from Texas to New Jersey, we drove thru Wears Valley, Tennessee.  The beauty took our breath away, the energy felt like home in both of our souls, and I remember the moment we both looked at each other and knew we had to go.  So we made the biggest decision of our lives and moved our family to the Great Smoky Mountains.  We didn’t know anyone.  We didn’t have any real consistent jobs.  We were both so scared and excited that at times we couldn’t even talk about it because we felt if we did, we wouldn’t actually go thru with it.  But we took a massive leap of faith and my goodness look where it has landed us!  Can you imagine if we would’ve listened to the fear and the doubt and the judgements?  Life wasn’t bad at all where we were, we weren’t running from anything, and quite frankly we would’ve been just fine if we would’ve stayed in Texas.  In our humble home and our routine life.  But look all that we would’ve missed.... Never be afraid to follow your dreams.  Even if they sound crazy. ❀️ #greatsmokymountains #dream #followyourdreams #thegreatestlove #family #leapoffaith #ourstory #meetthereddells #familybusiness #inspire #motivate #akingslodge #backstory #love #life

Today I completed my second 52 Hike Challenge (Adventure Series) hiking in the clouds/fog up at Andrews Bald in the Great Smoky Mountains. This year has been one of empowerment, of learning and growing, and one of becoming comfortable doing things on my own. From hiking by myself, teaching a class at the university level and to buying a house, I KNOW that I can do it. Over the past 2 years I have continually made a point to take care of myself better through making sure I have time in the great outdoors. It's been the best possible thing to happen to me. Sometimes there are obstacles that get in the way but it's a choice to be positive, look forward and not backwards and to keep from letting frustrations along the way stop you from doing something great! • • • • • • #52hikechallenge2017 #hike52 #52hikechallenge #adventureseries #instagramtennessee #andrewsbald #greatsmokymountains #womenwhohike #optoutside #todsl #hike #tennessee #seekthetrails #womenwhoexplore #hikingculture #adventureenthusiasts #fitbit #northface #explore #livelifeadventuring #nature #neverstopexploring #getoutstayout #myhome #livewell #lovelife #mountains
