I'm on vacation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee

We booked our rooms for the week of Memorial Day before Christmas last year and prepaid. When the Tennessee Legislature went crazy we said we wished we could cancel. We haven't had a true vacation for the entirety of our 23 year marriage, so we went.

Memorial Day weekend was crazy busy, but this weekend was vastly different. A lot of business owners commented about how slow it was.

Maybe we weren't the only ones who didn't want to come?

Anyway, we spent most of our time in the Smoky Mountain National Park and I wore the Pride Slides I got at Target every time we were in town!
