Valle girl

I’m home from spending most of last week in Valle Crucis.  If you aren’t familiar with Valle Crucis, NC it is pronounced Valley Croosiss and means Valley of the Cross.  I love it so much up there.  It’s my favorite place to be.  Time slows.  I knit in the rocking chair on the front porch and watch the tourists go in and out of the Mast Store.  Mast store all decked out for Independence Day As the sun sets we sometimes catch a glimpse of deer run across the yard.  It’s not nearly as hot there as it is in Charlotte, and sometimes at night people throw on jackets and sweaters- even in July.

We played lots of games (Scattergories was a favorite this trip) and ate all our meals together at the old table in the kitchen.  We went out for a couple of lunches, browsed through the Mast store, visited our favorite pet store in town, and rented a few movies.   I still have tons of pics to edit, but for now I’ll leave you with these pics here.  I’ll be back with details and more pics soon!
