inspiration monday


my little dutch sweetie treated me to a weekend getaway to the mountains last week!
but before we left, i packed some of my "essentials" because you never
know where or when inspiration will strike!







when you go to the mountains, there are times when you 
literally have your head in the clouds and you can see the whole world below......







or you can keep your feet safely planted on the ground and wait for mother nature to fill all those bare trees with spring glory.








or.......you can just drive around and count all the places where 
daniel boone supposedly slept (there are so many, they even named a town after him!)



{i'm honored to announce that the very sweet jenny doh has invited me to be a guest curator over at crescendoh this week!  please join me here for great links to great posts all week long!
thank you SO much, jenny!!}

My mom lived for awhile in the mountains of western North Carolina, near the Cherokee reservation, and these photos look very much like her old stomping grounds! Someday I would love to be able to keep the kind of travel journal you show here.

And kudos to your sweetie for surprising you with such a loving gift.
