3rd annual Thanksgiving at Biltmore

Good afternoon my dears.

Maybe its just me, but the weeks up to Christmas somehow seem faster. When I sit with my cup of coffee and a teeny piece of Cadbury's chocolate to upload our pictures and video footage, it makes me grateful that I can be anywhere (with internet connection) and recollect previous memories.

I think it is something you have to be intentional to do - to capture, and then preserve. Sometimes, I feel bad if I haven't put together a newsworthy post within 72 hours of the event, but then I see social media posts that make my heart skip a beat; 

"I lost all the first 2 years of -'s baby pictures off of my phone." 
"Another years gone by and we haven't been anywhere again."

My heart brakes for them. I hope they'll learn from this years mistakes and try to be more intentional for next year.

 Our 3rd annual Thanksgiving at Biltmore.

One of our favorite places on the Biltmore Estate to eat - especially during the holidays - is the Deerpark Restaurant. The restaurant has a large food hall, which serves up traditional southern style food.

Afterwards, we went to see the Christmas decorations inside the Biltmore.

The decorations - blue and silver - were to showcase the needlepoint tapestries. My pictures don't do it justice. It was simply magical with Christmas music being played on the organ and watching little children walk into the room and exclaim "wow".

Later that evening we went to the Inn on Biltmore. Its a good place to people-watch, as usually the more affluent of guests stay here. But for us its a warm and cozy spot, to sit by the fire, and listen to the pianist play Christmas songs. 

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 
Psalm 107:1

There's an abundance of things I'm thankful for, but my darling hubby, is who I'm most thankful for. 

Thank you. To any of you who take the time to read my blog, or watch my vlogs. I enjoy seeing how other people live - and we all have one thing in common, we like to remember these little moments, because maybe, just maybe the little moments are what matter the most.
