~The Hills Of Tennessee~

We got news late last week…that my mother-in-law’s sister passed away.(my husband’s aunt) So we headed off very early with family to Tennessee on this past Saturday morning for the funeral.


As we got into the Smokey Mountains…..


…they were living up to their name.


It was the smokiest that I have seen the Tennessee Hills in several years.


It was such a beautiful drive down and also on the way home.


Aunt Alice lived out in the hills in a very pretty area and was buried in a family cemetery right down the country road from her home.


It was good to see all the family that came to celebrate Aunt Alice’s life…but it sure was very hard to say goodbye to her. I just know that she is singing with the angels!!

Until next time……    Blessings from me to you…~Cindy

    I am very sorry for your loss too. It’s always so hard to say goodbye but I’m glad you got to make the trip down there. It sure is beautiful! We’ll be headed to those mountains soon…God willing. I love your new necklaces in the side bar! They are gorgeous! Hugs, Diane

    I’m so sorry to hear of your husband’s aunt’s passing. It’s never easy to lose a loved one. One of the good things that comes out of it though is it usually reunites the family. Funeral’s have a way of being a family reunion of sorts…….and a friends reunion! The smoky mountains did look pretty. My husband just came back from there not long ago. He went on a camping/fishing trip up there.

    I’m sorry to hear of the loss in your family, Cindy. It’s nice that you were able to attend the funeral, and be with family.
    Your photos are all beautiful! LOVE all the “smoke” in the pictures!
    Have a nice weekend.
    Sending hugs.
