We Went To See Rent

Good afternoon my dears,

A few weekends ago we had a delicious brunch at The Asbury, before going to see the Broadway production of Rent. It wasn't our favorite of shows. My favorite part was when the whole cast sang seasons of love at the beginning of the second half. We (and a few others) left shortly after that.

Five Things To Remember About September

Good afternoon my dears.

I have been a little behind on my blog lately. Mostly, because I've been distracted with building our new farmhouse. I gave myself the challenge to both film, and make weekly updates of the progress - which you can follow along here. I know I'll want to look back at the other moments and memories that we've made too, so I've written five things to remember about September. 

One

These pictures were from an early September brunch at The Gallery.



Where we unintentionally matched.



Two

On Labor Day Weekend we celebrated seven years since our first date. We met ten days after I graduated college, and I remember thinking at the time "what's next?" I was left wondering for less than two weeks before that question was answered.

Three

On Thursday, September 7th we went to our lawyers to sign all the paperwork for the construction loan for Wright Farms. Afterwards, we went for a nice dinner at George's to celebrate.

Four

On Tuesday, September 12th we met with our builder and project manager to discuss the grading and the staking placement. We shared about this in our video diary.

Five

On Saturday, September 16th we went to the 45th annual Dilworth Home Tour, where the homeowners graciously open the hearts and their homes, to raise funds for the Dilworth Soup Kitchen


Which is your favorite?

Cory's 36th Birthday in Blowing Rock and Boone, NC

Good morning my dears,

We had a lovely weekend away, nestled up in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, to celebrate Cory's 36th birthday.

Saturday, October 7th

On Cory's birthday morning we headed down to breakfast at our hotel, The Greek Park Inn, for breakfast and to open gifts...    


...and to take the traditional birthday pictures.



After breakfast we drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Moses H. Cone Memorial Park. The historic house, Flat Top Manor, is perched on to of the mountain overlooking 3600 acres of forests and lakes.  




I was so glad I packed my sweaters, because the temperature was 69 degrees.



Afterwards, we went to the main street in Blowing Rock and browsed the stores before heading back to the hotel to get ready for dinner at Rowland's at the Westglow Resort and Spa.





The restaurant is inside this charming historic house.


Where we were greeted by a sunset over the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains.


Psalm 113:3 From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised.








These were the varieties of salts they had. I rarely ever cook with, or add salt to my dinner, but I ended up trying a few on a few bites of warm bread. Yum!



Sunday, October 8th

The following day, we had breakfast at our hotel, then we headed to the small mountain town of Boone, NC which is also home of Appalachian State University. While there we browsed some antique stores and the Mast General Store along main street. Before we left, we grabbed some chai tea latte's for our drive back home, sweet home.


Here's a little video from the trip.

Thank you for visiting,

Autumn Picnic At The Farm

Good morning my dears. Hope you slept well.

Here's a little Pinterest inspiration for you to start your day with.
Our autumn weather has been unseasonably warm. Over 90 degrees most days.


However, it was a little more breezy on Saturday afternoon, so we went to the farm and had an autumn picnic. I used my phone to serenade us by one of my favorites - Doris Day (the song will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside).


For the floral arrangement I used greenery from our garden, with autumn rod and Kenyan roses.


Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes
(with candy corn pumpkins)

Cheddar and Golden Tomato Tea Sandwiches
(I added a slither of mayonnaise and a dash of cracked pepper)



Dirt Pudding
(Chocolate pudding with dark chocolate shavings and a sprig of mint)
Everything was simple and delicious.

We enjoyed talking about the past week and the week to come. We've been busy bees, as we approach week three of building our farmhouse.

So until next time, have a blessed week.
