Feature and Follow #6: Hammocks and Sweet Tea

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!


Spring is in the air! Show off your favorite outdoors reading spot. If you don’t go outside…well where else do you read that isn’t inside your house? We want pics!


  I'm very fortunate for where I get to live. As much as I complain about living in the middle of nowhere, I get a pretty sweet deal. Laying in bed, I can look out the french doors to my deck and see the Great Smoky Mountains. I have an obsession with hammocks, and my favorite place to read is on my hammock on the deck. During Spring and Fall, the weather is perfect for it. Mountains to one side and a river to the other and a glass of sweet tea in my hand. I'll take it.

  I'm not at home (sad face) tonight, so I'm going to share other pictures I have of the view for now!

    1. Shew, it's still cold here, too! We had a couple warm days earlier in the week, but they didn't last long. The view is amazing, though! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It is! It's the perfect place to read when the heat isn't unbearable. TN has it's pretty days, but sometimes it's so bleh and boring.

    1. Aren't they, though?! Sometimes I take them for granted because they're just outside my front door. You should definitely get a hammock and join the club! It's amazing.

    1. Thanks, doll! I sound so lame, but I'm totally not a beach person! It sounds like you live in an incredible place to have so many nearby. If I had that many close, I'm sure I'd become a beach person in a heartbeat! :)

      And yes, get a hammock! They're totally worth it! Thanks for stopping by, doll. xx
