My Great-grandfather Poppy fought in WW1. I never knew him. I know a lot about him from the stories told in my family. I get tore up thinking of him so far away from home and in violence. It’s sad & humbling that so many people in rural Appalachia had to serve in the front lines for the United States of America. I hope our family honors him by all of us living our truth. I am so lucky to see him & experience him in the faces & personalities of my family... especially my Uncle Paul. #ww1 #veteransday2018 #appalachia #southernappalachia #november2018 #northcarolinan #easttennessean #myancestors #veteransofww1 #doughboys #armistaceday #poppiesforourpoppy #generationaltrauma

“You don’t have to hurry; you can be here all day. Wow, look what you did! Look what you get to see!There is definitely a connection between physical movement and mental movement. When I feel mentally stuck, and few hours on a trail will usually unstick me.” @amythepratt #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #gsmnp2018 #gsmnp #whyihike #fatgirlshiking #fatgirlscan #trailsnotscales #fatandoutdoorsy #unlikelyhikers #bodylove4all #southernappalachia #appalachia #yallmeansall #allyall #sheexplores #mamawmagic #woodsmagic #wildandweightless #subarugotmehere #testedtough #tennpearl #snailismymascot #faunaofthesmokies

“Listening to the dreams of autumn, I am aware that this is a season of letting go and of mystery. I listen for the mystery of life to speak through my dreams. I am grateful for this, and I am open to what it is teaching me. “ ( LIVING A SACRED LIFE- Robin Heerens Lysne ) #ginkotree #naturewalk #fallintennessee #fatandoutdoorsy #tennpearl #livingasacredlife #seasonoflettinggo #november2018 #easttennessee #homesweettn

Virginia Creeper growing on the back of the Cal Johnson Building. Years ago, I wrote an article in our city’s paper about saving this building. Cal Johnson was a former slave who became a prominent businessman of Knoxville. The building was built in 1898. Plans are FINALLY in the works to fix it . Thank Goodness! #scruffycity #historyofeasttennessee #natureinthecity #virginacreeper #knoxvilletennessee #scruffycity #caljohnsonbuilding #knoxville #november2018 #vibesinthecity #colorsofautumn #southernappalachia #appalachia #historyoftennessee #appalachianhistory #yallmeansall #allyall

This cornbread never lets me down. Cornbread = Love ... it also helps that I made compound butter with Ramps back in the spring & I’ve been storing it for a day like this. #makecornbreadnotwar #cornbreadislove #rampbutter #lodgecastiron #november2018 #cornbreadfed #appalachianfoodways #southernfoodways #yallmeansall #allyall #southernappalachia #appalachia #madeintennessee #tennpearl #eatwhatyouarehungryfor
