Project 52 Tennessee

Week Eight.

February 21, 2015
One must maintain a little bit of summer even in the middle of winter.
– Henry David Thoreau 

Remember last week when I was pretty much mocking winters here in the south? Well, I basically ate my words this past week. Winter storms in the south are NO joke. Ice came shooting down from the sky for 8 straight hours and by noon, neighborhood kids were literally skating down the street. Yesterday, I cranked the heat, put on my favorite Hawaii tanktop and shorts, and painted my toes neon pink as I sipped on a margarita. Because gosh darn it if I have to bring warmer weather here myself, I will! (Still waiting to see if it works, stand by.)
[ This is week 8 of a 52 week photo series: Project 52, where I document the beauty found in Tennessee ]
