Annual Family Trip! Destination: Gatlinburg, TN.

This weekend we traveled to Gatlinburg, TN for our annual family trip. Between cabin misadventures and severely steep inclines, it was an eventful one to say the least! The last time we were here was 3 years ago when my life ALMOST changed forever.

During this particular family trip, my now husband and I got engaged. I’m sure you’re thinking, “what’s the ALMOST changed about?!” 😂 No, I don’t say almost because getting married was the worst decision ever and my life is miserable. It’s actually quite the opposite! I say almost because, though Gatlinburg was my husband’s intended destination to pop the question, Mother Nature had other plans. When we arrived on Friday, it was fall. When we awoke on Saturday, it was winter. In some parts, up to 14 inches of snow had fallen while we slept. Needless to say, my husband’s dream of purposing to me on Mt. LeConte (the 3rd highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park) was dashed. The parkway and all the trails were shut down for the remainder of our visit. Of course the story didn’t end there as we did in fact get married (we’re just a few days shy of our 2nd anniversary). He proposed later in Asheville near Lake Lure.

In honor of our return to the place where the journey to #Hymanpartyof2 ALMOST started, I thought it’d be fun to recreate my look from that fateful day. Take a look and tell me how I did!

Vest: North Face 

I purchased the shirt from Target a while back (clearance rack find). Here’s a really cute alternative.

The scarf I also got from Target a few years back. I found a very similar one on Nordstrom’s website.

The jeans, which don’t get much love in this post, are from Old Navy’s Rockstar line (see them here).

Here’s a snippet of our actual engagement (disclaimer: my family is extremely animated! I love them❤️).
