evins mill

for our anniversary, we escaped Nashville for a quick overnight trip just outside of town. we left Eli in the capable hands of some friends and headed to Evins Mill in Smithville, TN.

it was a perfect little respite. dinner in the rustic lodge. a walk around the old grist mill. morning spent reading on the rocking chair porch overlooking a creek. we meant to wake up early and hike to the waterfall before breakfast, but instead slept in for the first time in seven months.

since then, life has resumed a pace i can hardly keep up with. photographs of our wilderness hideaway are a nice reminder of quieter days...

what lovely photos... very moody feeling... sounds like quite a wonderful time... I think you should blog more often ... I always love your thoughts and processing of life...

Evins Mill is so pretty! Those are very good photos of you and your hair looks great! I like the new feather picture with your blog title as well.

So glad you two got to get away. I am a regular "checker-outer" of your blog who always leaves with a smile after reading your blog or just looking at your splendid photgraphs! I'm smiling right now as I comment! Thanks for sharing, it really blesses and encourages my heart. May God continue blessing you and Jeremy with more love for Him, for one another, your precious son, and the lost world. Praying that I too would excel still more...from a sister in Christ in CA~
