Last night on a whim the hubby and I decided it would be fun to build a fire in our fire pit and make s'mores after dinner. We hadn't done that in the longest time and they tasted so yummy!
The weather was perfect for a fire, just a little bit nippy. I just love sitting outside in cool weather bundled up by a fire! Even though it was a pretty smokey fire, I still enjoyed the warmth roasting my knees and hands in the cool autumn night. Perfection!
Today has been another gorgeous Fall day! You know, the ones that are 65-70F! It's perfect when you can be outside in the sun with long sleeves on and not get hot. We thought it would be a good day for a picnic and a hike. So we grabbed some sandwiches and headed to our local TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) trails. In our area the TVA has built a dam on the Tennessee River and around that area are tons of beautiful hiking trails and recreational areas. We parked and walked to the picnic area only to find a wedding party setting up at the pavilion. I sure couldn't begrudge them because it was the perfect day for an outdoor wedding. Instead we found a picnic table not too far away and we discreetly ate our lunch while watching them set up and the guests start to arrive. We were finished before they started the ceremony, but I'm sure it was a lovely one. We walked/hiked (the paths are pretty easy, except for a few steep climbs) several miles of trail overlooking the Tennessee River. It was so beautiful! Here are some pictures from our time on the trails.
