Franklin, NC

Went on a lil work escapade to Franklin, Waynesville and Sylva, North Carolina yesterday which are in very far western North Carolina, close to the Georgia line. Went to look at some land that we are possibly going to develop and also check on a project that is under construction (got muddy there!). Here is the land in Sylva we are looking at - a mountain basically!


Here is the gorgeous view...

This is a picture of the little restaurant we always go to in Franklin. I'm talking down home southern cookin' where the waitresses call you sweetie and baby doll. You don't get a turkey sandwich at a place like this - it is meatloaf or grilled chicken with 3 vegetables. Vegetables are mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and they have a couple green things - salad and collards. Ha! Having a piece of pie after lunch is all part of it and required. Coconut, strawberry, fresh peach, chocolate, pecan - you name it, they have it. All homemade. AH-mazing. Needless to say, I didn't really eat dinner!

Got home later last night and went to meet Kevin out at Blue for a drink. He is leaving today to go fishing in Wilmington for the weekend with a bunch of his high school buddies. He'll have a good time. Tonight, Tara and I are going to go to the Avenue Happy Hour at my place and also the 4th Ward Porch Crawl. Basically all the neighbors in 4th Ward come out on their porch, everyone brings their own drinks and everyone walks around everywhere. It is a pretty cool "get to know your neighbor" event. Typically a few houses "host" and have some basic snacks. Should be fun! Yall enjoy your weekend!!
