Georgia Bloggers Blog Hop!


It's time to teach the country about yes ma'am and ya'll.
Down here in Georgia, we talk with a drawl.
We're bringing you some freebies as sweet as our tea.
Enter our contest, you might get some things free!


I moved to Georgia from Tennessee as a junior in high school. I can't believe it has been over 20 years! I met my husband coaching at the same high school south of Atlanta, and we have lived in Dawsonville for the past 6 years. I love north Georgia because it reminds me of my east Tennessee home. The only other place in Georgia I would love to live would be the coast! 

I do love Dawsonville a lot, though. I mean, where else does your city hall share the same building as the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame? AND have moonshine distillery right next door?! (that gives tours and free samples!)


Nascar was born in Dawson County. Learned that watching the History Channel :) And to top it off, I am pretty sure there was a knocked over home moonshine still in our backyard when we moved in. We salvaged the stone to create a nice backyard fire pit.

If you aren't a fan of racing or moonshine (Dawsonville does have an annual fall Moonshine Festival. Love going!), then you may enjoy Amicalola Falls, the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi River.

These are just a few reasons I love living here. I love how close it is to the Blue Ridge Mountains and how close it is to Atlanta.

This weekend, we've paused from our peach picking to give you a taste of Georgia. Twenty-five teachers invite you to take a road trip through our southern state. Hop through our blogs to get freebies.
                                          

You can pick up mine just by clicking here.


We'd also like to give you a chance to win a bushel basket full of our products. Whoop whoop! To enter from my page, you just need to follow my Facebook page. You can enter once from each person's blog! The Rafflecopter is below.

    1. My hubby and I haven't hiked up the falls in years! We are waiting for our kids to be old enough to do it with us, but we do love to go and picnic or do short hikes :)

  4. I am a fellow Tennessean that now lives in Georgia! I just recently moved to Georgia. I'm one of the only ones around my area who says "Go VOLS!" :) My hometown in Tennessee just opened a moonshine distillery! Gotta love small towns!

    1. The outlets are probably the MOST popular attraction here! Funny thing is I shopped there a lot before we lived here. Now I hardly ever go! :)

    1. Ha ha ha! Moonshiners are crazy! They love their roots for sure! I told my husband you know we have lived here for too long when our kids started making moonshine stills in their Minecraft worlds!
