i’ve been wanting to make it up to the blue ridge parkway since october. i was really hoping to see the mountains with all the colorful leaves, but we with our crazy schedules, we just couldn’t get up there until now. i suspected all of the leaves would be off the trees [and they were] but it was just as beautiful. the day was chilly and overcast, so there weren’t a lot of people out. it felt like we had the parkway all to ourselves. we stopped at a couple different overlooks, hopped on a few hiking trails, and just drove – listening to nickel creek, john mayer, and christmas music. it was a good day.
thank you for the best birthday, my husband! i love you!
