summer of adventures: let's turn here!

about a week ago my friend casey and i decided to go driving tennessee back-roads. she had a decent grip on the area where we began, but it was only a matter of turns until we found ourselves on only gravel roads. we passed more dairy farms than i knew existed in tennessee. which is a perfect segue into this photo:

this, is a view that greeted us early on in the trip. and within seconds of seeing it, the suv was pulled over, the cameras whipped out and pictures were taken amidst a thick atmosphere of laughter. good times.

we continued to drive, turn, and take pictures of road signs we passed as a means of getting home. i think "opposum hollow road" and "slaughter road" shared the title for best sign of the day.

we also prayed for "a field of wildflowers to take pictures in... with multiple-colored flowers... and easy access... although we [didn't] have a problem trespassing"-- and sure enough, we got one. with butterflies.

all in all, a perfect day, full of wonder and joy, with a sweet friend. spending time in what is quickly becoming one of my very favorite states... (it only took 10 years of living here, right?)

A.)Every time I see a cow now I think of you and those cows... (well now I think of when we went back with Misa and the incident with the Bull)
B.)God really has blessed me with you as a sister and it is a joy for me to see how God is moving in and through you.
C.)Let's do this again please and thank you.
