I was in Tennessee last week, in the swelter and humidity of the South. We honeymooned in the Smokey Mountains three years ago and it was good to return.
We drove the backroads through the mountains, out of the park, stumbling upon old houses dissolving into the greenery. We found farm stands, stocked with beautiful homegrown produce. We found rivers with lazy white blossoms floating downstream. We found Appalachian folk music and trails winding through the mountains to waterfalls
We found that blessed kind of slowness and easy living that the south forces upon you whenever you go to visit..
