camping trip

Adventure is out there...and we found it in Chattanooga at Raccoon Mountain Caverns and Campground over the weekend. 
Had so much fun tent camping, cooking over the campfire, exploring a cave, stolling along the Riverwalk in Chatt, and fishing in the river.

Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
