A Murphy Haunting

We’re big fans of celebrating all the holidays, so we’ll definitely be participating in the downtown Murphy Halloween festivities.

Rest assured, Mrs. McNabb is in charge of buying the candy and she’s a big fan of chocolate… So it’s all treats at 75 Tennessee Street in downtown Murphy from 4-7pm. We can’t wait to see all the great costumes!

Many thanks to the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce & Town of Murphy, NC
for organizing this event for the families of Murphy!

Back in the swing of things

It’s been a minute since we posted, but as I sit here while my husband works with our daughters on their golf swing, the vibrant foliage inspires me to share the beauty of our mountains. We’ve been through a few challenges and historic moments since I last posted, I’ve stepped away from social media and come back with a bit more intention, we’ve mastered new forms of communication to simplify our lives, but have a much greater appreciation for seeing someone return our smile with a big hug, and I’m catching up on family visits and weddings that were originally scheduled for 2020. Ah yes, The Great Reflection…

Not only did I learn a few TikTok dances and embrace the comfort of crocs during this time (I’m surrounded by teenagers), but I also gained a bit of perspective. I’m very much so in a quality not quantity state, comfortably choosing to sip coffee out of my Christmas mug all year because it sparks joy. My time is more precious than I ever realized and I’m investing it wisely in my family and community. As a lover of travel, I’m enjoying road trips and vacations to new places again but growing far more grateful for that return to the comforts of my own home in these beautiful mountains.

So I’m back in the swing of things, sharing all the good things about the mountains of Western North Carolina, North Georgia, and the surrounding South Carolina and Eastern Tennessee towns. The beautiful communities where the fog lifts to reveal long range views, locally owned boutiques and restaurants, artists, entrepreneurs, and the most incredible mix of some of the best people you could ever hope to meet. We’re making time for good books, golf, hikes, boat rides, festivals, and love taking in the sunset views with a full glass and even better company.

Happy Parade Weekend!

The weekend we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived… Happy Parade Weekend! We hope you all get a chance to celebrate A Very Murphy Christmas Saturday at 4:00 pm – dark. We’ll begin with local talent and activities at 4:00 pm. You can be a part of the Selfie Scavenger Hunt and turn in your entry to win by 4:45 at The BakeShop on the corner of Tennessee & Hiawassee Streets.

We’re beyond excited to present a new Christmas tree this year. The Festive Fairies have worked their magic yet again, and we promise… It’s a beaut, Clark!

A big thank you to the many volunteers that come together to make this the most wonderful time of the year in Murphy! If you’re unable to celebrate with us in person, we hope you’ll enjoy the parade on WKRK’s Facebook Live.

Please help us support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cherokee County and the amazing kids served by this program!

We hope to see you at the Very Murphy Christmas Parade!

Easing into Fall

We’ll be honest, we checked out for summer and neglected the blog life. In our family, it’s a season of nights on the porch, riding bikes, and jumping into the lake as often as possible. We took full advantage of a relaxed schedule without ball practices, dance lessons, or the early morning rush to school, but we’re begrudgingly settling into that back-to-school routine.

As our girls work on school projects and fill the house with the sounds of piano lessons, we’re reminiscing about our laid back summer and trying to keep the busyness at bay. What are your favorite summer memories in the mountains?
