city / country


L - Nikon, 200mm / T - Nikon, sigma 30mm

We're back. We traveled straight city highways and winding country roads, seeing more beauty than we could possibly share. The trip had its up and its downs, as most trips do I suppose, but the family reunion was a huge success. We visited a very cool vintage shop in Knoxville, called Nostalgia and a beautiful cemetery in Lexington, but the country proved to be the most pleasurable – no surprise there. Shaker Village in Pleasant Hill is one of the prettiest places you can imagine, so peaceful and relaxing and the weather could not have been better - temperatures were in the 60s most of the time. We had a great turnout for the reunion - lots of great fellowship. After uploading my photos and trying to select the best I have to say I'm too tired to write more. Maybe later.

welcome back to you both.

winding roads, family reuniting, vintage nostalgia, peace and relaxation . . . it all sounds so nice. and two wonderful images to help tell the story.

i still have not approached my sister about working with me on getting a family reunion together, but i plan to yet. maybe it will have to be for next summer—but i have a feeling we will need that much time to plan it.

Hey, I did a "we're back" post yesterday, too. Isn't it so delicious to be home and sleeping in your own bed, petting your own cat? Ahhhhh....

Hey, my word verification is Esther. First time I've ever gotten a real name.
