What a wonderful Christmas break. The last few months have been so busy, I feel like I've been going 100 miles per hour and it felt so good to finally slow down! We all needed a rest and it was great to get away. Last year we had a White Christmas in Asheville, NC with 9 inches of snow on Christmas day, so we thought we'd go back with hopes of having another snow-filled week. It didn't snow this time, but the weather was much colder than Florida, so it really felt like Christmas! Our cabin was lovely and had a magnificent view. For me, it is so much easier to relax when I am away from home! If I would have been home, I would have found at least 100 things I still had to do :) My favorite part was just hanging out, enjoying each other's presence, and celebrating the birth of Jesus.

The day after Christmas we drove to Cataloochee in Maggie Valley for a little night skiing and enjoyed some man-made snow!
It took a whole day to see the extraordinary Biltmore Estate and Village- especially pretty in the evening with the Christmas lights.
|One of our favorites, the Fried Chicken Sandwich at Tupelo Honey- yum!|
|I'm not really sure why, but this guy ran through the streets dressed as a gingerbread man and had a Jamaican accent. He called himself The Ginger Dread Man! |
(note his dreadlocks) Hilarious!
I hope you enjoyed your holidays as much as I did!
