" O M G, look at all that smoke," I raved to Hazl as she stared down at her phone. Hazl joined me on my road trip to Tennessee this morning and all we could say was, "WOW!" At 7 AM this morning we saw the most breathtaking view on my way to work. It was one of those situations where you want to take pictures and drive at the same time, but you can't manage both so you pull over and try to get the best picture possible - or have your sister hang out the window and capture the views as you drive super slow, that was us today trying to capture The Great Smoky Mountains! If you have never been to the Smoky Mountains you are missing out! If you love scenic views, nature, and astonishing sites visit The Great Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, Tennesse. Luckily I was fortunate enough to work on site at a secluded cabin locked away in the mountains. The aura of the mountains left such an imprint on my spirit that we're planning our next girl's trip there! The Great Smoky Mountains is a view you really can't put into words. You have to see it for yourself.

Fortunately, I have traveled to some amazing places all over the world and it never seizes to amaze me the small treasures that are located near me in the states. From Atlanta, Gatlinberg is about a 3.5-hour road trip. As soon as you arrive you will understand where the mountains got its infamous name.

Travel! Explore! Be Wanderlust! Be Adventurous! There is a great big world out there for us all to see! Fill your heart with memories, and leave your eyes mesmerized by the beauty of the world. As Tolkien said,"Not all those who wanders are lost!"

Xo, Blu
