A Trip to Cades Cove

Fall is just amazing. A couple weekends ago we took a trip to hike in the Smokey Mountains during the prime time for changing leaves. Per a few recommendations for some gorgeous views, we circled Cades Cove to hike Abrams Falls. Cades Cove is a loop of awesome landscapes and views, with old churches and trails to hike. It certainly did not disappoint!

Sneak preview: Athens Senior Photos

This afternoon I had the chance to shoot senior photos for a beautiful North Oconee senior! The weather was awesome and the leaves were falling. It truly was great fall day!

Here are a few of my favorites of Marlee. She was such a natural in front of the camera and her eyes are absolutely amazing!

Can’t wait to share more soon!

A Perfect Fall Weekend

This past weekend the hubby had a full weekend off from school and studying. That only happens once every couple months, so you better believe we lived it up to the fullest, especially during my favorite month of the year.

Since we all know this is true, we opted for heading up to Ellijay for the Georgia Apple Festival, apple picking and pumpkin patching.

But, before our trip up to the beauty that is North Georgia in October, we made a stop at Chip’s parents house for dinner with a special guest – 6 special guests to be exact, shipped live from Maine that morning.

Hello lobster friend, you were delicious.

The next day after a mini road trip, we saw bees hard at work to make our Creamed Cinnamon Honey. Delish.:

Found some of my favorite apples ever:

Relived childhood at Burt’s Farm and began to make Chip’s long time food dream a reality… see this recipe.

And just plain loved on some fall…

The wonderful weekend ended with Sunday brunch with my parents and a trip to the fancy dog park near my parent’s home. Sophie was in puppy heaven. Check out this girl’s tongue…

Sweet, sweet fall. Nothing better.
