Last week, Chris and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary with a week-long vacation to Gatlinburg. We took lots of photos and this week I will be sharing our adventures with you!
Our journey began at 6 am on Sunday morning. After packing up the car, we started driving and made the 8-hour drive from Indianapolis to Gatlinburg. We didn’t stop much, except to fill up the gas tank and to eat, so we made pretty good time to our destination.
As we entered Pigeon Forge, it was obvious that we were in tourism-central. Souvenir shops, restaurants, and cheesy tourist traps were everywhere we looked. We got sucked in to one pit stop, a “gem mine” themed shop that sold melted down leftovers of Fenton glass. It was sold by the pound, and I got a pretty piece of jade glass for $4.
We didn’t make any other stops until we reached out cabin, which we were really excited to discover was as gorgeous as the photos advertised! The best part, though, was the mountain view from our deck.
After settling in, we took a drive through Gatlinburg to pick up some supplies, and we rounded out the evening in our cabin by making dinner: artichoke, filet mignon, and baked potatoes. Yum!
