It truly was...absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful ~
My parents live in the north Georgia mountains
and it was so good to see them!!
We left Friday afternoon around 3:00 pm
hoping to get ahead of the awful Friday afternoon traffic.
No such luck.
What should have been a 3 hour trip
turned into a 5 hours!
But it was fine, because this is what we awoke to Saturday morn....

The view behind my parent's house standing on their deck ~

We headed out early Saturday morning
so we could squeeze in as much fun as we could!
These are some of the photos I took ~
I hope you don't feel like your at the neighbor's house
looking at vacation slides!!

Do you think Heaven will look like what you love??
If so....Heaven will look like this to me ~

We went junkin' as there were tons of yard sales all
around the town of Hiawassee ~ They were
taking advantage of all the leaf-lookers that were visiting.
I found some wonderful
goodies that I'll share later on!

Beautiful Autumn Colors..... I really never thought that Georgia had the same fabulous colors of Autumn as we do in Michigan.... If I could get My kids to move from here, I would be in Georgia in a Heart Beat, I am not crazy about the long Dreary, Gray days & SNOW here. Plus, I have several of My Family who already moved to Georgia ~ Maybe, One Day ~ Fingers Crossed.

The fall foliage is just wonderful and your parents have beautiful views from their house. Thanks for sharing those pictures! I'm looking forward to seeing what you found at the yard sales. Have a wonderful Monday, too, dear friend! Hugs, Julia

Oh Dawn, how you make me crave a trip North. We have a piece of property up a mountain in Cashiers/Highlands NC. but nothing on it yet and no plans anytime soon. I love GA/NC this time of year. Oh if I could only get away from here.

Carla said...

Beautiful pics! Thanks for sharing. While on our way to son's football game yesterday, I was almost in awe of all the beautiful colors along the way. It seems like all the colors were just popping yesterday - at their peak! I should get out with my camera today and get some pics.

Thanks for the head's up about the classes, too. Think I might go check them out!

Hi Dawn~~
So happy that you had such a wonderful visit with your parents. We have driven up to north GA and it is such a serenely beautiful part of Georgia, isn't it?
LOVE this time of year...with all of the magnificent color of the leaves. Our little maple tree finally has color this year~~woo-hoo!!

Have a wonderful day~

Lorraine said...

I've not visited Georgia but these photos certainly make me want to and especially to head up north! Lovely colours....

Connie said...

I believe Heaven will be too magnificent to describe in words, honey. I can't wait to see it...what am I saying...I'll wait a few more years! LOL But meeting the Savior will bring me to my knees and tears will definitely flow for what He has done for us.

Absolutely stunning landscape and view from your parent's house, sweet chick, just stunning.


June said...

Hi Dawn, That was no neighbor's slide show!!! That was just pure beauty and I love every picture. Your Heaven will be beautiful.

Hi Dawn,
Love your blog, love all that you share!
Thanks so much for sharing the beautiful view...
gorgeous! I am from New England and miss Fall, this time of year. I am in North Carolina, foliage hasn't peaked here, yet. (there's no place like HOME)
Thanks for the visual inspiration!

Jann said...

Picture book scenery--just gorgeous, Dawn! Looks just like heaven to me!

LOVE the beautiful pictures from your trip!!! I think I could stay there forever! Amazing!! ~Mandy

Charlene said...

Oh Dawn, your photos were just breathtaking! We just do NOT have fall color like this in Texas! Thank you for sharing it with us. And NO, it's not like looking at the neighbors pictures... silly girl!

I got my little nest & soap in the mail Saturday. HOW sweet are they!!!!!!!!! I haven't opened the package to smell it yet. You know how that is when you have a new goody you just have to savor it a day or two. Thank you for offering it & I am so glad I got one. I will probably be needing a box of them. I think a give away is looming & I could include a few don't you think? :) Hugs dear friend.

Unknown said...

Oh Dawn...those photos are absolutely incredible! What a beautiful place to live OR visit! I'm very excite about the artist class and so glad I registered. Have a great evening... Cori

Kimberly said...

Dawn, Thank You! Since I am from Southern California I have never in my live seen the leaves turn and that makes me sad! I love autumn and wish we could see more of it here. Today it is 85 degrees and I would love a cold snap.
Anyway beautiful pictures and really nice of you to share. I can not wait to see your wonderful finds.......

Sandy said...


Your photos are just stunning! Your parents view is so awesome. It looks like you had a beautiful time, nothing better than great company surrounded by beautiful scenery.
