Announcing My Intention To Live In A Tent For A Week...

Can you believe it?? We're going CAMPING!!

My family and I will be tenting for 8 days in North Carolina, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains! My brothers are very excited. :) We are camping at a privately owned campground called "Deep Creek", named for the river that runs through it. We'll be tenting right next to the river, yet we will have electricity and civilized water! :) And a bath house to visit. *Yay!*

We'll be leaving on Saturday, so excuse me if I don't post much. We have a lot to do to pack a family of 5, as you can well imagine! Fitting enough possessions into a medium-size minivan to sustain us for 8 days will be a feat indeed!

I'm getting another camera card for the trip, because the one I have now ONLY holds about 600 pictures, and I can fill that up in 2 days....we'll be gone for 8...and viewing amazing things every day that MUST be photographed for the blog!! :) You know how that is if you have a blog yourself. And you're crazy about pictures like I am. :)

So bear with me through the next 2 weeks, as I'll be quite busy!!





  1. I shall enjoy seeing pictures of the Smokies again. I was in N.C. in 1998. At that time, we didn't camp, so we stayed in a cabin.

    However, we came like you all do. Running water, electricity, bathrooms. Only we have a camper

  2. Oh wow!! The Smoky Mountains are about my absolute favorite vacation spot! It is so gorgeous. You will have a WONDERFUL time! And camping is fun too. So both combined is something called and unbelievably amazing experience. :P
    I can't wait to see the pictures!


  3. Wow! I absolutely HATE camping! I hope you all will be safe and happy! I, as well, can't wait to see the pictures!

  4. Have fun! I went camping about 2 years ago with my family (not in the Smoky Mountains) and it was SO much fun! I can't wait to hear how your trip goes!


  5. Thanks for the wonderful Saturday afternoon/evening. I enjoyed spending that time with you! I enjoyed Friday as well. Guess we'll just have to do it again. :o)

    Have fun camping!!!


  6. Julia,

    I just jumped over to your blog from Jasmine's. What a wonderful young lady you are! Thank you for portraying a lovely feminine quality into your blog. I am a mother of teenage boys and I pray that they will be as impressed as I am with the right Christian girl!

    Hoping in Christ,
