I have lived here my entire life and love it so much! I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I wish everyone knew how amazing it is
It's a quaint little part of the countryside that's only about 45 minutes from Nashville, but the trees that stretch for miles make the world feel like an entirely different place. I adore it.
