Murphy, NC – Fall Events Scheduled For This Weekend In And Around Murphy, NC

Cullasaja Falls

Happy Fall Everyone!!!

What a beautiful day it is and we have had such beautiful weather these past few weeks. Waking up to cool, brisk mornings in the mountains of Murphy reminds me of the times I would spend with my grandparents as a child in Virginia. Where they lived was a poor, coal mining community, but it was rich with love. Love of God, Family, and Community.

I remenber one fall morning I woke up to see that grand mama had put an extra quilt on me during the night because grand daddy always left the windows up. He would tell us we would sleep better and the pure fresh mountain air would make us healthier. I miss those days with my grand parents but the memories are mine and I am so fortunate to have grand children to share them with.

Its the simple things in life that have more meaning than all the riches in the world. Memories, good memories, cost nothing. Memories are one of the things free in life and its the little things we do for others that make a difference. Thank you Grand mama for that extra quilt.

Below are a few of the festivals and events happening in and around Murphy. Take the opportunity if you can and make some memories this weekend.

Happy Fall From Everyone At Exit Realty Mountain View Properties!
