Road Trip 2013 – Smoky Mountains

The last week of summer is among us, and we’ve just returned from our semi-annual trek to the Smoky Mountains.   Instead of making a pit-stop in Atlanta again, we decided to bust it straight through to Wears Valley, TN where we rented a cabin. We like Wears Valley because it avoids all of the […]

Season’s Greetings – 2012

As we close out 2012, I’m not going to say it was all rainbows and unicorns or the best year ever.  But, it would be a far stretch to say that it was terrible.  We’re all happy and healthy, no doubt! Our house hit ten years old this year and has already started falling apart. […]

Goodbye summer…

While I may get a little stressed as summer approaches and scheduling takes a turn, I always get sorrowful when it comes to an end.  I’m convinced this summer went by faster than any other, seriously. Earlier in the year, we decided not to take an extended trip.  Instead, Luke took some time off work […]

Adventures in China…

I just posted my China adventure details on ijenn for all those to see… All of the pics are in the majjix gallery though. 🙂 Of course, I can’t resist shameless promotion of Pro QC, who ultimately financed the excursion… more articles related to my trip can be found on their blog. Per a translated […]

Great Smoky Mountains Adventure – 2011

This year’s trek to the Great Smoky Mountains was amazing, as always… a week of relaxing in a cabin overlooking the national park can hardly be beat! The Odyssey proved once again to be the ultimate comfort machine for our family as we took to the road and hit Atlanta for an overnight pit stop. […]
