Home Again, Home Again....

It's bittersweet to be home again. We had an absolutely wonderful time with my family, but there is nothing in the world like driving 15 hours home and crashing in your own bed. Ahhh!

Looking back at some of the great times.
Nothing quite like seeing the mountains after a rain....


eating good food till you almost pop... (my sister ate 18 ebleskivers)


finding a quiet place to sit and talk, or say nothing at all...


decorate t-shirts with puffy paints for a while with a some of the nieces and nephews...


Family is the best, and the wonderful location just added to the greatness.

For those that don't know what an ebleskiver is then you haven't tasted heaven in a small, pancake like ball! They are made in a special pan that can be purchased many places, but see William Sonoma for not only the pan but lots of great recipes. They are such a fun food to have for breakfast or dinner!

All photos above are taken by me and are 100% Smoky Mountains!

Is that first picture real? It looks like a painting. You should frame it! It's beautiful. By the way, what are ebleskivers?

Oh my goodness, I recognized those mountains immediately in the pictures.You were about an hour and half from me.We vacate and rent cabins frequently over in the mountains of Tennessee.I bet you got some good shopping in as well at the outlets. Watch out for those ebleskiver's....they are addicting! Your photos are beautiful also!

Looks like the perfect combo of good company, good food, and good scenery.

sounds like you had a great time and the scenery is just lovely. I have seen the ebelskiever pan, but haven't actually eaten one. They look sooo yummy.

Jill I love your blog! I've been checking it out for about a month and a half, not realizing just who was writing it till this last week. You have some awesome ideas!! I have to admit you have inspired me to get going on my house again, for some reason winter is not a time I am inspired to do decorating projects.
Anyway, sounds like your trip was a lot of fun, I'm sure I'll hear about it from Heidi. By the way, great pictures! That first one is so neat, it almost looks fake! :)
