Happy Tuesday, friends! Today I’m finally sharing a few more snaps from our fall trip to Knoxville, Tennessee, and call me a slacker, but I seriously can’t believe this fun trip was over a month ago. It really seems like every year once November comes, time really does start zooming by. Blink your eyes and the month is gone.
But late or not I had to share a few more photos because the Tennessee foliage was seriously showing off at the time. After leaving the colorblind-less lookout point at Veteran’s Overlook, we headed down the mountain and came across the prettiest open field. To Eric’s delight (extreme sarcasm – hence all the solo shots of yours truly), we pulled over for a few more snaps with the talented Alaina Rene.
And in case you’re wondering, the answer is yes, I am in fact wearing a belt bag. You guys, I did the thing I said I’d never do. I’ve been anti belt bag since the first sight of that fanny pack resurgence a year or two ago, and I’ve stuck with my guns about that pretty hard. But then I saw this under $20 faux fur one right before our trek to Tennessee and felt compelled to give it a whirl.
I must admit, it was a lovely day living freer than free, exploring around, taking a zillion iPhone snaps of the scenery and then heading to breakfast without worrying about a purse. At some point I’m sure I was dang-near skipping. And then somehow I managed to leave the belt bag in our rental car on the way to the airport, and that was the end of my carefree saga. (Luckily it was empty as I’d already switched everything into my carryon bag.)
So, you know, I loved and lost (LOL), but overall, this trip was definitely a win. Hope you guys have a great week ahead!
