A Romantic Getaway

This past week Vince and I celebrated 15 years of marriage (boy, does time fly!).  And he surprised me by planning a romantic getaway in the Smoky Mountains.  It couldn't have been more perfect!  He rented us the. most. charming. little cabin in the woods...and I do mean woods.  We were miles and miles off of the beaten path, utterly surrounded by the beauty of the Smokies.  We drove in late (read: way after dark) our first night there and we drove so far on little one-lane paved roads that turned into one-lane gravel roads, never meeting another car along the way.  I told him I hadn't realized he wanted so badly to get me all alone...heehee  

Today I wanted to share some of the beauty of the Smokies with you.

the (gravel) road further into the woods to our cabin

now arriving at *Foxglove*, our cabin in the woods

our back deck with the oh-so-relaxing hot tub in which we spent much time

there was a tree beside the deck that dropped these lovely blooms all over it...I felt like they were a gift just for me:)

relaxing in the woods

even in the rain it was just beautiful

every side of our cabin was surrounded with this woodland beauty

We relished every moment of relaxation in this quiet hideaway.  It was just what we needed!

What a beautiful way to celebrate your love in the midst of God's creation. I don't know if I'd want to go home. (smile)
