We snuck away for a day in Ellijay, Georgia with my sweet sister-in-law, my brother and their beautiful twins.

To me the best part of fall is the way family and friends pull in a little closer. It’s an unconscious and subtle thing. Soups and chilis make their way onto menus. All the recipes that beg to be shared with big groups. Festivals pop up almost every weekend, and the weather is perfect for wandering. 

I guess it’s harvest season, right? The time of year when everyone pulls together. I love that.

Here’s a few of my favorite shots from this weekend.

One of the hardest thing about running a business of your own is that there are very few true vacations. An urgent email or last minute opportunity is sure to pop up. Honestly that part of entrepreneurship really disappointed me at first.

Truth is unplugging for a week is not realistic right now. But. Unplugging for a day is very. very realistic. So we will pepper in more days like this. Days of mountain air, sweet moments, and small adventures.
