I Live In The Shire. No Really, I Do.

I've had my heart set on Tennessee for so long now. Started to wonder if I was making it more awesome of a thing in my head than it really is.
The answer is nope. Sure didn't. It is JUST as amazing living here as I always knew it would be. We are now official residents of Thompson's Station, TN, which is nestled in the rolling hills of middle TN.  Cows and horses are grazing in green fields sprinkled with yellow flowers just across the street from our house, yet a Starbucks is only 8 minutes away. Not too shabby. :)
Here are a few pictures of the little road we live on, a cul de sac which ends in a small cemetery filled with family headstones featuring last names the same as our road.

Part of our front yard.

This is what we see when we pull out of our driveway. There are usually cows...don't know where they went today. :(

And this...


So, yep. There's that. Hard to stay in a bad mood for long when this is what's waiting outside the door.  Not that I'm ever in a bad mood...

Thanking God my feet aren't as hairy as a hobbit's (did I say "as"?...I mean't, "NOT"...),
