Our Annual Tradition: The National Storytelling Festival {Day 1}

Hey guys! Happy weekend! I usually don't post on Saturdays but I wanted to check in to show you a little of the what we're experiencing this weekend at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee! We're staying at the Hawley Bed & Breakfast, where we stay every year, and where my husband proposed 3 years ago, and so far, the weekend is off to a great start! We're staying in the Main House this year (as opposed to the Butterfly Cottage) and the weather has been wonderful - it's in the 80s; it's usually much colder!

We spent the entire day yesterday listening to tellers - if you aren't familiar, the storytelling festival is a place where people come to listen to performers, comedians, storytellers share stories. We heard some incredible ones yesterday. My favorite tellers were Antonio Rocha and Tim Lowry. Rocha's story was funny, but had a deeper meaning and was really inspiring. Lowry was just downright hilarious!

Being around all these storytellers really inspires me as a writer!
