Sometimes I gripe about living in the mountains of North Carolina, living in a town of less than 2,000 inhabitants, with no Target, airport, or like-minded souls to speak of.
But this place is beautiful. Breathtaking. Quiet. We sleep with all our windows open and get awoken by birds. We have a view that's to die for.
We moved here 2 years ago tomorrow, and as much as I occasionally dream about moving to the city, I know we'll never live anywhere quite like this again.
Which is why we've decided to stay for another year. We're not ready to leave just yet.
(The video above was shot on a recent hike on Mt. Jefferson, the wonderous "peak" we can see from our back porch. It's perfect.)
