We are hitting the road today, for the wonderful area around Helen, Georgia!
Ian's Grandpa and his wife (aka Pop and Sylvia,) live in a gorgeous mountain retreat on the tippity top of a mountain about 15 minutes away from Helen, and we are driving out there today to spend some time with family!
This is just the first of MANY trips coming up. You can read about the rest of them HERE.
I am hoping to be able to try my first caramel apple. That's right, my first. I'm not really sure how I escaped that one, but I figure it is rather easily remedied!
Helen is also the place where I had my first funnel cake ever. So here, for your viewing pleasure, is me and one of my best friend's Jessica, at the place of the funnelly cake.

(and yes, that is a sea shell choker. I thought it was cool.
Thought, as in past tense.)
Hopefully we'll also get to meet up with Ian's Aunt, Uncle, and 3 little cousins, who all live nearby on the grounds of a summer camp which they own and operate. How cool is that?
Then, on Friday, as long as he doesn't back out, our dear friend Sam will be driving up to come hang out with his favorite Galloway's. We will go to a corn maze, go hiking, carve pumpkins, watch the Florida/Georgia game, and eat plenty of great southern cooking courtesy of Ian's grandma, Sylvia.
I keep trying to convince him it will be tons of fun, but I'm not sure if he's buying it.
(pictures circa early summer 2008, Sam helping us move our stuff into the apartment pre wedding. I'm pretty sure he thought I was crazy, seeing as I almost cried when I stood in my gigantic closets!)
Then we'll head back to Nashville on either Sunday or Monday for a week of school work and packing (again,) before we head off to our next trip....Louisiana!
