A brief escape





Our anniversary was this past week. I also sent my mother to visit my brother up north for a few days, so we were alone and able to go some where for the first time in years without arranging for others to care for mom. We managed a day trip and then a last minute overnight trip to a an inn in the Smokey Mtns of NC, in Bryson City. It was rustic, family run, no TV or phones, just home cooking, beautiful views and delightful innkeepers. I have a couple of photos to share-you guess which part I liked the best. LOL I was only able to get the interiors of our room and one other, but...well, you see how it was.

I like the quilts on all the beds too... had the innkeepers made them?

And I love the pink quilt - but the wallpaper above it's a bit much!

Happy Anniversary. We've been to the Highlands in NC a couple times since we moved here and we really liked it.
