Blue Ridge Mountains

Blue Ridge Mountains 1

The Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, there’s nothing like them! You are guaranteed to find some peace of mind (and body) here.

If you happened to read my award acceptance post, you’ll know that the mountains of Va are where I most love to be and consider home. Something about the mountains, for me personally, refreshes the soul like nothing else can.

The much simpler, slower, quieter pace of life, it’s incredible. Seeing and hearing nature at its finest and most undisturbed, serene natural habitat, what’s better?

My husband and I are here taking a much needed break for some R&R. You may not be hearing much from me for a little while as a result. ☺

I love sharing with y’all so I wanted to send you some photos from here. I hope you will enjoy!

Please forgive me if the post is slow to load. I’m currently without laptop so will edit sizes of photos when I return to it.

I’d love to hear from you too. What’s the place you feel most at peace and call home? Do you have a favorite vacation spot? Tell me about it ☺

    We all have our refuges. We love our home and we love being on our boat. Those are our two loves. It’s fabulous that we all have those special places.

      When you love where you live, everything else can be handled much easier. A stressful day for example begins to melt away when you enter that “safe space” you are blessed to call home. 💝

      Glad y’all have that! And thank you friend for linking me to Aw Mondays. As always, you are so kind. Have a beautiful and blessed day Sandee!

      Perfection! Sounds like where I was living in Martinsville. It’s an amazing feeling to be that close to some of the most breathtaking scenery one could hope for! (And awesome people!) ❤️ Matter of fact, Meadows of Dan area is where we are hoping to move to somehow …
