Lets just say 2016 did not arrive quietly! We have had so much going (some I cant even disclose...yet!) that most days I forget which direction we are going.
We didn't finish all our Christmas festivities until after the first of the year, although its tiring, I love having so many great people to spend the holidays with! The week of Christmas Brett and I were actually able to get away just the two of us for a couple days and took a road trip to Virginia. It was part business, to deliver this precious boy to his new home...
But we took full advantage of the opportunity to have a few days to ourselves! On our way back across the country we stopped and visited the Biltmore Estate. I highly recommend a visit. From the moment we went through the entrance gate I felt like we were in Beauty and the Beast, winding through the "forest" and the house was absolutely stunning, and I'm sure we only saw 1/4 of it during the 3 hour tour. I have to agree with Belle, the library was my favorite room! I was even interested in all the history of the family and land, which I'm ashamed to admit usually doesn't intrigue me so much. We did a Christmas candlelight tour of the house and toured the rest of the grounds the following day.
I have got to get better about taking pictures. I never think, "I'm going to want a picture of this later!" Photos weren't allowed inside the house, but I didn't manage to take any of the rest of the grounds.
So, check out their website and see what your missing out on, it really is a beautiful property!
Ill have to catch you up on the rest on a different post, this has gotten a little long... see ya soon!
