I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains with my family, (actually, we live on the side of one of ’em,) and we absolutely love it up here. Life can be challenging when you’re roughly 30 minutes from the closest grocery store, hospital, mall, or any other form of outside entertainment that your little heart might desire. And, it doesn’t help when your closest girlfriends are what seem like a world away. But, with a little planning, preparation, and a lot of teamwork, this life we lead works for us. I’ve found my little piece of heaven on earth.
