SSL Fall Foliage Report: Historic Jonesborough, Tennessee

Hey, y’all! Welcome to today’s Fall Foliage Report–which is all about historic Jonesborough, the oldest and most darling town in Tennessee. After a very busy weekend of mini adventures, it was good to get away to my favorite go-to place for inspiration…not to mention Jonesborough has some pretty fabulous places to shop for everything from candy to antiques.

Enough chit chat–it is time to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy SSL’s Fall Foliage Report from downtown Jonesborough.

This was taken last year when we came to Johnson City to house hunt. Our realtor told us about Jonesborough, and we decided to take a little tour--and I am so glad we did!

The leaves are beginning to drop...one by one...oh, how fun it is to dance in the falling leaves!

The shades of oranges and yellows against the blue sky is simply breathtaking.

If I had to pick a favorite photo from today's adventure, this one would be it. I thought it turned out pretty good considering I know nothing about the hubby's fancy camera. I can only shoot it on auto *smile*

I am super proud of this shot because I got down on the ground (living on the wild side *wink*) to take this picture.
