Well, we're off!

Having resigned myself to the fact that I cannot possibly hide all embarrassing thing in my home, I leave knowing that if people snoop, then they snoop. Just accept it and move on, Lori. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Ok, feeling better now. So we leave early tomorrow for our fantabulous trip. Our first destination is Helen, GA. It's a beautiful little town modeled after a Bavarian village. We visited it before and, unfortunately, lost all of our pictures from there when our hard drive crashed. A moment of silence, please, in memory of the hard drive.

Murphy, NC is our next stop. We have a couple of acres of land there that we purchased several years back. We'd just like to see if the area is becoming more built up or if it's still out in the sticks. If we end up moving to Knoxville, it would be so neat to eventually build a cabin there. It's about 2.5 hours away and we could have a "summer home." We'd be just like Oprah. Except she's got a summer home, winter home, spring home, fall home, Christmas home, Labor Day home, Groundhog Day home...Well, you know what I mean.

Then it's off to Knoxville. We will be checking out the real estate market, looking at the job market for hubby, checking out a church or two. Plus we'll visit Gatlinburg and make a much-anticipated trek to Dollywood! My kids love Dolly Parton ever since a) She appeared on "Hannah Montana" and b) They found out it's her singing back-up on Brad Paisley's song "When I Get Where I'm Going." Plus, it's an amusement park. And you can't go wrong with that!

On the return trip, we are going to go through Asheville, NC I learned this evening. Hubby changed the plans on me. Then we'll swing through Savannah and head home. Savannah was one of the places we visited on our honeymoon, so I always love to return there. It's a beautiful city that holds wonderful memories for us.

We hope you've enjoyed your tour of the southeastern U.S. here on Lori Airlines. Please fly with us again soon. Check back for pictures of all the beautiful stops along the way!

No way. You are not going to Savannah. Please PLEASE go to The Lady and Sons restaurant in downtown Savannah and then tell me ALL about it when you get back.
Other than that, have a great trip.
I hope you and Ib find it everything you want it to be and then some.
