When you look out at these majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, your heart is filled with gratitude.


We’ve seen some of the most beautiful sunsets since we’ve been here and I’ll share a few in this post.


I don’t have to add any effects or ‘tweak’ them.


They really are this beautiful!

I was grateful for a fun package I received since we’ve been here, too!


Debby from the Cozy Blanket had a giveaway and I WON!


A big box of fun things to use for card making and pages in my art journal!


Thanks Debby! You are such a sweet blog buddy and always so generous.


Enjoy the weekend and take time to look around for the beauty that surrounds us.

Reminds me of my hometown in North those mountains. I think of all the Scottish people who settled in the mountainous South...the mountains reminded them of home.

And I love give aways. I am going to have to do one soon.Maybe something with a fall theme???

Congrats on the giveaway, looks great. We live in WV and I told Hubby that I don't think I could ever live in another place that did not have mountains. Your pics are so breathtaking.

Love the sunset pictures, the mountains are beautiful! We are surrounded by mountains and when we travel to different places that are flat with no mountains I keep looking for them. Feels odd.
