We had a great week-long vacation in the mountains of North Carolina. I didn't want to leave. The log cabin we stayed in at Lake Lure was so cute and comfortable. Everyday we either ventured out to nearby towns for homestyle BBQ or we cooked up delicious feasts ourselves. We went skiing (well, I ended up just watching, but a brave few went out and tried it). We visited the fabulous Biltmore Estate and took a tour inside the extravagant house. We enjoyed the beautiful views at Chimney Rock and the quirky artistry of Asheville. And we had a great new year's eve filled with good food, dancing, games, and Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
It really was a great vacation and we are ever so thankful to my parents for making it happen and for all my family members who joined us (15 of us in all!). We miss you all and it was wonderful to spend the last week of 2009 with you. I also miss Miami just a little bit more over the holidays and it was such a blessing to still be with family even if we couldn't be in Miami.
Danibel also made a facbook album here.
