Awhile back (February 2010 actually), I wrote a pretty hefty blog. A list of 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days. I’m happy to say that since then, I’ve crossed a few off the list, and this year, I was able to cross off another.
I first visited Biltmore in 2002 and fell in love. The lush greenery, the grand architecture, and the Beauty and the Beast-esque library had this girl in a daze. I’d been longing to return ever since. This year, my boyfriend and I made the decision to road-trip to Gatlinburg for skiing, then make our way to Asheville to see the Biltmore, have some delicious foods, and see friends.
We did soooo much on this trip. We found an amazing roadside stand with a huge collection of rocks, crystals, and fossils—it also had an original Sinclair Oil dino! So cool!! We made some pretty amazing meals, went wine tasting, and had some lovely ski time!
I also got to visit my beautiful (and super talented) photographer friend Sarajane Case before heading over to the Biltmore.
This photo of Ryan and I below was soooo tedious! I ran back and forth with the auto-timer for about 30 minutes before we got this shot! Whew!
I’m glad that I was able to cross something off of my 101 list. What are your longtime goals? Is there something you’re hoping to do soon?
