I really have no good reason for calling this sweet little city by this ridiculous name - it just kinda fits for me. Kinda cute. Maybe not.

Anyways - I am back. (and I will not go into detail about how I was welcomed home by being awaken at 6:30 by two children fighting over the toilet). I had a fantastic little trip to Chattanooga this weekend. I went to hang out with my friend Natalie. I jokingly said a few months ago to get some friends who wanted their pictures taken and I would fly out. Well, she did and I had no clue how far away Tennessee really was. Sadly. But I found a great deal and met 7 great new families (previews to come).

So Chattanooga, according to my vast traveling experience and expertise, has quite a bit to offer. It is clean and cute and has water and hills and bridges and great food, museums and an aquarium... It is really quite charming. I had no idea I would like it so much. I actually flew into Nashville and then drove 2 hours southeast to get to Chattanooger. I had no idea this state was so green and lush either. I need to get out more, really is what I am revealing here.
No zoning laws here, where Natalie lives. I kind of appreciate those more now. I didn't see people walking around with buckets of KFC, which honestly I was a little disappointed by or any kind of southern crazies (again a wee bit disappointing). But I did see some awesome homes and churches and interesting signs.

I didn't realize Rip was up for re-election this year.

On my way back to the airport, I took a little detour, as per the nice lady's advise on the plane ride coming in, and stopped in a little town called Sewanee. It is home to the University of the South. And it has an amazing campus, straight out of School Ties or Dead Poets. I was so glad I stopped by.

This nice lady also suggested that I eat at this restaurant - a former home of Al Capone. I didn't make it. I suggested to her that next time she eats at Dockside, to skip the fish and make her way to the Gooey's menu.

It is good to be home.
