WINTER VISIT TO GATLINBURG + PIGEON FORGE w/ WITH MY MAN…
Well, Nashville, there’s a fair chance that this winter will be a snowless one from here on out. And no, a saltshaker’s worth of white doesn’t count, says the girl born in Chicago! 😉 There was a wee enchanting half-hour of soft flurries the other day that I caught out my window, but hardly anything stuck around to show for it. Not that I’m complaining though! I’ve found my body really struggles with handling the cold (and the dark, early nights) and so I gravitate more to the other seasons and celebrate the moderate winters that Tennessee enjoys. After the holidays are over, I’m all about the coming Spring. If I can find a yearly opportunity to play in a good snowfall to indulge my northern born sledder, I’m good. This year, that quota was more than met when Sean I took a trip to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge for a photography job.

SIDE NOTE ABOUT OUR TRAVELS: I’ve had people ask about our frequent travels this past year, wondering how we find time or the budget to make those adventures happen. The main answer is that Sean has his own growing business as a photographer and he specializes in outdoor and lifestyle content. (He has a new website under construction as we speak and I’ll be sure to tell you guys about it when it’s done – so you can see the amazing work he’s been cranking out!) He’s done numerous jobs for the state and tourism departments and as his wife, it’s awesome to see him be able to integrate his passion for photography and his natural love for his home state and the outdoors. I don’t always get to join him on trips and shoots, but we’ve made a point of finding ways to share as many of these experiences as is reasonable and responsible for us at this time in our life. So, I’m always totally tickled when I get to tag along or contribute in some way. I am working on my own business and creative endeavors too and our common entrepreneurial energy inspires us both on the regular. Sean continues to work part of the time in his hospitality job (to further grease the wheels of photography) and I am doing what I can to fund my goals and dreams in turn. All that to say, we are super determined to keep striving for a lifestyle that allows us to travel, create and collaborate on our own terms for a living one day – and hopefully soon!
