A Mountain Getaway, Red and Chords


Oh my goodness.  Me and my sporadic blogging tendencies lately!  Because of said tendncies, this post is going to be a little on the random side, but that's not really anything new.

There is so much I love about the month of October, but this particular October has been pretty fantastic and I'll be sad to see it go next week.


How is it possible that November starts next week???


This past weekend, Andrew and I headed up to the mountains to enjoy time with friends and everything the little towns of Blowing Rock and Boone had to offer.  The older I get, the more I realize how little I appreciated the surroundings I was blessed by in my time at Appalachian State.  There is just something special about the little town that is at an altitude of 3,333 feet.

This was the adorable cabin we stayed in, which was surrounded by nothing but woods and I'm sure it could serve as the setting of a scary movie if needed.

I mean, this place was down a few miles of gravel, twisty roads and it would not be found on accident, but then again, I guess that's the point of having a getaway.

And this was the amazing view all around us, no matter where we were

In addition to the beautiful scenery, we also had the opportunity to hang out with some friends that we hadn't seen in a looooong time.

You know a good time was had when discussions for next year have already commenced.  It was a wonderful weekend and I was sad to see it end.

But when the weekend ended, it meant that it was Monday and that meant the long awaited (at least by me) Taylor Swift album could finally be purchased.

I don't know the last time I purchased an actual CD, but since Target was the only place selling the "deluxe version," an actual CD was a must.  I know a lot of people aren't loving the "new Taylor," but I am loving this album.

And finally, I've officially started guitar lessons!  I've only had one, but I'm seriously loving it.  Mostly focusing on scales and basic chords, but it's harder than I would've thought.  Also, it's sad that I've played my guitar more in the last week than in the last year.

Okay, maybe not quite, but probably pretty close.  My goal is to learn a Christmas song, so wish me luck!

See?  Random.  Happy Thursday, everyone!
