north carolina through my senses.....

if i could touch north carolina....i would feel the wind sweeping through the hills of which i live as i tried to catch the leaves it blows, the new born baby calf and a baby chicken, the hot sand 
beneath my toes on summer vacation

if i could smell north carolina....i would smell fresh cut hay, sweet, stinky manure, watermelon, apple cider and christmas trees

if i could hear north carolina.....i would hear the train blow its whistle every day around 11:30, the laughter of my moma, the sound of a diesel truck

if i could see north carolina.....i would see blue mountains that take your breath away, dirt roads, tractors, and chicken houses, God's handiwork in the sunrises and the sunsets

if i could taste north carolina.....i would taste fresh green beans and cucumbers, fried squash and cornbread, chicken and dumplings and sweet tea, and granny sue's chocolate pie

 goodness i love this place

  2. You know before I moved to NC I would always think pictures of the Blue Ridge Mountains looked fake or edited. How could they truly look blue? I get it now.

  3. I think I may just have to plan a trip to North Carolina...(you should work for their tourist department!) It sounds beautiful...and your post was too!

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
