Leiper's Fork

It has been a busy week and I just realized that I have not blogged since Tuesday. Where has all the time gone? It has been a week of repairs, a dental visit, work at the antique shop and some jewelry making squeezed in. Yesterday the DH and I took a ride to Leiper's Fork. We have lived in Tennessee for 5 years and this was our first visit. It is not terribly far, over an hour at most and so well worth the country ride. Rolling hills, and tons of horse farms along with beautiful estates. Leiper's Fork is the home of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, as well as the Judd's, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. The town in so charming and reminds me of one of our favorite towns in Vermont.

We passed this sign yesterday and laughed so hard...
Learn to play riding experience necessary! For real? Seriously?? 

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. It seems the temperatures are starting to cool a bit. It is funny when 89 feels cool. 


  1. So pretty! And I can't WAIT to take Polo! I can't ride a horse, but I'm sure it will be easy as pie! :-D

  2. I have a feeling that is a beginner's class on ponies. :-D That area of TN is so pretty. I am past due for a trip.
    Enjoy your evening.

  3. The weather is much better, a cool breeze in the morning, I had almost forgotten what it felt like. Now if we could have some steady gentle rain in Tennessee. I might be up for some polo!

  4. You do live in a really beautiful part of the country. It's funny isn't it how we don't necessarily get out to see those gorgeous things that are so close to home. At least that seems to happen to us quite a lot.

  5. Tennessee is such a beautiful state, especially in the areas of the horse farms. Our weather has changed some also - it was low 60's this morning - beautiful, but it's not supposed to last....bummer.
