It's 28 degrees out there on this beautiful Carolina morning. Mr.MW is out running and Annie is snoozing.
Last night we returned to the Biltmore mansion for Candlelight Christmas. This is a huge annual event that draws crowds from all over the country...and world. The house was lit with candles and the huge fireplaces were roaring. Choral singers and musicians filled the air with the sounds of Christmas. It was beautiful...and very hard to obey the no photo rule!!!
I did manage to take a few pics outside...these were taken out the window of the jitney as it brought us to the front door. Can you see the slice of moon? It was magical...Annie oohed and ahed the whole way...and she wasn't the only one.
There were luminary bags lighting the long entrance road drive. The huge tree in the courtyard sparkled with thousands of lights. There is no way you could end your visit and not be totally full of Christmas spirit...I can't wait to get home and start decorating!
The Inn where we are staying is beautiful as well. Here are a few pics of one of the dining rooms...what a view!
Below is the view from our room...this morning. There is no work of art that can surpass the simple beauty of nature.
Today we are headed to the Tobacco Barn...an antique store/mall that is suppose to be wonderful...I'll let you know!
Have a great weekend!
Enjoy the day,
