Big Creek

It’s a big creek on the NC/TN border, and we enjoyed the out of doors this Sabbath as we shared a picnic and hike.

Good, healthy food, sunny skies, and crunchy leaves made our afternoon special.

Conversations with new and old friends, pretty scenery, and kids getting wet in the waterfall–all of the ingredients of a good hike.

Here are a few things we saw along the trial.

Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

The Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop


This is a place to share some love and spread some sunshine!

The focus of this blog hop will be: anything related to making our homes more sunny and happy! If that’s through homemade cooking, a health tip that will help another, homesteading tips, homeschool successes or real-life struggles, or just whatever God is impressing you with in your home journey, please share it!
