A New Year.. A New Start

Looking back at my blog the other day I realised my last post was in July last year. Wow I didn't realise it had been so long. 
There is no specific reason for my lack of posts since then other than, well life I suppose. There was many times when I wanted to blog and a lot more times when I just didn't feel like it. 
Last year was a particularly hard one for me and although I don't feel those hard times are quite over yet, I've thought long and hard about restarting this blog. A lot of the reason for that is because looking back through it, and all the happy times has meant a great deal to me and I want to carry that on so I have a lot more happy times to look back on. 
I know it also means a lot to my family who don't get to share these moments with us. 

So without boring you anymore about that heres a few of my best memories from the end of last year that I didn't get around to sharing with you. In no particular order and missing a lot of photos as my phone broke whilst I was in England and I lost every single photo aside from the ones I had uploaded to Facebook :-( 

Warning: A lot of photos follow this :-) 

Enjoy

The Great Smoky Mountains- Part 1 Dolly's Homecoming!

We took another short trip at the beginning of May, this time we ventured into The Great Smoky Mountains. It just under a 9 hour drive from our house so we planned in extra stops on the way there and on the way back. 
Our way out took us down through Nashville and we stayed the night just outside in a place called Murfreesboro, I have recently just gained gold status with Hilton Honors so it was really nice to get upgraded to an executive level room and two free breakfasts!
I started to feel a little ill at the hotel, I think a cold was settling in but after a good sleep I was feeling better the next day. We carried on to our cabin in Sevierville, TN.

The Cabin was amazing, it was everything I thought it would be and more. To get to it we climbed up and up and up a spiral road and when we finally reached our cabin the view was breathtaking! I could quite happily wake up to that view everyday! The cabin was fully equipped with a kitchen, 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, It also had a hot tub outside. It was beautiful!

The first night we decided to take Calleigh into Pigeon Forge and on our way there we noticed that the main road was being closed off. After a bit of googling we discovered that it was for Dolly Parton's Homecoming and she would ride right down the road we were on in a parade! It was still early so we took Calleigh on the Dinosaur ride and went for something to eat. Then it was time for the parade and what an amazing parade it was- Lot's of the local shows were there and then Dolly Parton herself riding right down the street just feet in front of us. Calleigh was shouting "Dolly! Dolly! Dolly!" the whole time bless her!

After the parade we drove back to the cabin and enjoyed the night together in the comfort of the cabin. It was truly a great evening- I may have even cried a little at seeing Dolly.
We made sure to get an early night as we had big plans for the Smoky Mountains the next day!

More on our trip to come soon- I promise!

You may have noticed that last month we were a bit quiet on the blog scene. Well my Mum came out to visit and we spent most of our time with her and enjoying ourselves. I am very behind on some posts due to that, I still owe you our trip to the Smoky Mountains, so I will be trying to catch up over this next month! Look out for some lovely summery posts as the hot weather has finally arrived here in St Louis!!
