Looks like Mr. S and I will be making an impromptu visit to Tennessee for my father's birthday. His birthday isn't until next week, but there was a super-cheap, last minute flight from Newark to Knoxville this weekend, and my mother surprised us by purchasing a ticket. I can't wait to see grass and trees again. And mountains and farmland. And family!
We'll only be staying for a few days and probably won't be making it up to Johnson City, but if anyone is planning on being in the Knoxville area, we could possibly meet up.
