Come a little bit closer, I going to reveal a secret. Shush! The Southeastern of the US is magnificent. If everyone would know how beautiful the South is, it would be too crowded down here, so we rather keep it as a secret. If you drive less than two hours northbound from Atlanta, you’ll find yourself in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is what we did last weekend. The next day after my birthday party, Mr. F and I packed some leftovers and the rest of my birthday cake (check out instagram for a picture) and our dog Lily into the car and we spend a whole weekend in the wilderness of this mountains. Well wilderness more or less, how wild is the wilderness, if your cabin has a hot tub and a coffee machine?! But you know what I mean. For a city slicker like me it was rather rural. Warnings like: Black Bears had been sighted in this area lately or make sure your car is well maintained and you fill up your gas tank before you drive this route, already scares me a bit more than I like to admit. It was a little adventure and also peaceful and calm, I enjoyed every minute of our getaway. Here are some snapshots, I hope your are as smitten as I am of our beautiful South.
