I live in Tennessee. It is a beautiful state - mountains and wildlife abound. Each morning during the school year, I travel a few miles to Georgia to the school I teach in. The view as I travel is of Lookout Mountain and the surrounding hills. Awesome way to start the morning.
When I told my brother about the challenge, we started brainstorming about things I could add to the Tennessee tile. Our discussion turned to North Carolina, the place where we were born and grew up. Tennessee is my "now" home, but North Carolina is my home of memories. It is vacations with family, playing in the backyard, all those wonderful childhood things. So I changed my mind and decided to do NC.
On my ZIA you should be able to find lots of NC things - Grandfather's Mtn. in the Smokies, the influence of the Cherokee and Scottish people in the hills, famous lighthouses, the NC Tarheels, fields of wildflowers, the pines, the rivers, the state flower - the dogwood, and the Outerbanks. Can you see them? This was a lot of fun to do! I plan on doing the Tennessee tile, but wanted to get this one posted now, in case I don't finish the other one.
