Let's take a little break from talking about evacuation and talk about hurrication. My friend Jen came up with this word: hurricane + vacation = hurrication. Make the best of it, right?!
This was our one big splurge during the evacuation and I'm already so glad we went for it while we had the unexpected opportunity!
The Biltmore! Of course I'd heard of it but hadn't really known much about it - wow, what a place. I think it is providential that they day we were there was their first day of decorating for the coming Christmas season. David said he is surprised I ever left! Ha!
Emily wants to move into the library a few photos above, Rachel's favorite was the laundry room which had multiple sinks, a big roller washing machine, mangle and neat sheet drying system. I kept telling Rachel she would have that place whipped into shape in no time!
I loved this family room immediately above and also the servants quarters - they just felt much more homey to me than the lavish living quarters "above stairs" :)
The crisp Fall air and mountain views, gorgeous sunset and just doing something different were all a welcome treat in our time away! And what fun memories we made. Can you imagine cleaning 43 bathrooms?! Samuel thought that fact was especially interesting!
