saturday in the smokies

Today was a very chill day. The original plan was to hike the Appalachian Trail, but my lymphedema wasn’t really permitting that today. I hate that I forgot my compression sleeve. We have already discussed a trip just to hike the Appalachian Trail, however, so it’s all good, just a bit disappointing. Instead, we hung around the cabin. Went for a swim. Soaked in the hot tub. Enjoyed dinner out on the deck. Watched for the bears, but they didn’t visit today. After yesterday’s encounter, that’s probably for the best. I know Biz was relieved.

I can’t believe it’s already our last night. We head home early tomorrow morning. I’m really going to miss this place. It kind of feels like a second home now. We had a fantastic time. 💜

I adore our little family. I feel extremely lucky, and very loved.
