For the past two months in my spare time I've been planning a special trip for my sister and me to take. Next week we're off to Little Rock, Arkansas, to visit P. Allen Smith at his Moss Mountain Farm (link is to a two minute video of the farm to give you an idea of the beautiful gardens we'll be seeing).
Growing up as sisters, we always loved going on family vacations, which were always to the Great Smoky Mountains...every year without fail. We loved going to Gatlinburg, Tennessee!
Here's a picture of my dad with the two of us as cute little girlies in 1959...taken at a scenic overlook with the beautiful Smoky Mountains in the background:Fast forward to 2016...that little sister of mine turned the big 6-0 in March! My gift to her was a ticket to Moss Mountain in Arkansas! Here she is opening my gift:Once it dawned on her what my gift was, she had this reaction. Do you think she looks a little surprised?From her home in South Carolina, we'll be traveling the northern route through Tennessee headed to Arkansas and traveling the southern route through Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia on the return trip back to South Carolina.
I've been researching antique shops, the Saturday farmers' market in Little Rock at the River Market District, a presidential library, restaurants, quilt shops, and the unique Bed & Breakfast where we'll be staying.
Hannah is in charge here at the homestead for the ten days I'll be away. I'm sure she'll come up with some wonderful meals, and she and Granny will become a twosome! :)
See you back here on the blog sometime mid-June with some vacation posts and hopefully some good pictures from our Sister Trip!
Anyone have any suggestions of a Must-See you think we need to add to our stops?
