Lynchburg & Old #7

If you ever find yourself in Southeast Tennessee make sure you take some time to go to Lynchburg and tour the Jack Daniels Distillery. It is pretty amazing how they still make Jack Daniels on the same property that it has been made for 100's of years. A small town of 316 set in the hills of Tennessee. It is sold world wide but made no where else in the world other than Lynchburg. They make 3 different kinds of Jack: The original Old #7 , Single Barrel and Gentleman Jack. Funny part of the whole thing: The county that Jack Daniels is made in is a dry county. So no free tastes. But still worth the time to take the tour!!

Just Me

I don't know how many of you are lucky enough to have this:
This layout:
Inspired me to do this:

What was scrapbooking like before Becky Fleck and PageMaps? I don't even want to think about it. What great inspiration from both of her books. What a fun page to do. Thinking about what I am today and what I want to be or do in the future. I think in a couple of years I am going to update and do another Just Me page and see what has changed and what I am wishing for!!

Emotional Scrapping

Wow. It's been awhile. Didn't realize how long it had really been. I have been an emotional scapper lately. We went on vacation again this winter. Down to Flordia to see Steve's parents and then to Alabama to see my family. On our way we went down through Tennessee. I have traveled that Interstate a million times. But this year was different. All the times before I had been going to see my Grandpa. This was the first time since his passing that I had been down that way. Such a sad moment to drive past the exit to his house. Then while in Alabama I got to see my Niece Derian. She is my sister Christy's daughter. She looks so much like my sister. Even though Christy is not here with us I feel every time I look at Derian I have a part of her with me. So now that I have all of that out of my system (well actually it never really goes away). But I am thankful for all the memories I have of the ones I love and the memories I will make in the future with the ones they left us!!! Never take a day for granted. We never know what tomorrow holds for us!!
