InstaLately: Part I

It's been awhile since I've done a post other than my monthly goals, so I figured it was about time for an InstaLately. And since I have quite a few pictures, I thought it'd be best to split this up into two posts.


We have some really nice sunsets up here. I can't get over some of the colors I've witnessed firsthand. And like, I know sunsets are super cliché, but they're only cliché because they're so beautiful. There's a reason so many people take pictures of sunsets.


And speaking of sunsets, the Club has some great views, too. Not just sunsets, but like, always. I can see why it's a nationally ranked course, and I've never even played one hole. These two pictures were during a really bad storm we had back in August, or maybe it was September. It was a while ago. And when there was a break in the weather I noticed just how moody it got outside and ran up to my office to get my phone.


And earlier in the fall, we would get the perfect golden light as I was leaving at the end of the day. And looking over the rooftops out toward the mountains was something I always enjoyed. The worst part about winter is it's so much more evening-y when I'm leaving, and I don't get to see that golden light anymore. I so wish you could see the mountains in the picture better because in real life, it's one of those sights that makes you realize how lucky you are.


And also sunsets, lol. This is the most recent picture of the Club that I've taken. I was leaving for the day after what had been a really rainy, crappy day, and I looked out over the patio one last time and literally said "wow" out loud. You've always got to take a picture of something that makes you audibly say "wow." So that's exactly what I did.


Anyway, switching gears. Over Labor Day weekend, Bryan and I decided to go on a little nature walk out at Ijams Nature Center. 


Knoxville also does this big event called Booms Day over Labor Day weekend. I'm not really sure what the point is, but they just set off a bunch of fireworks. It was actually a really awesome fireworks show; I was definitely impressed. Unfortunately, since Booms Day costs SO much money and doesn't bring in enough to support the event year after year, the tourism center decided that this year would be the last Booms Day, so Bryan and I made a point to go. 

We have a friend who has an apartment downtown overlooking the river where they do the fireworks and have the whole event, which made for a top notch viewing spot. This picture was taken from her front porch. No zooming or anything. I told y'all it was a good spot.


And finally, back at the end of July, my mom, stepdad, and dog came to visit. It was awesome.


Check back tomorrow (or maybe later this week... who knows) for part II!
