A Quick Biltmore Getaway

Kevin and I slipped out on Saturday for a quick, overnight trip to one of our all-time favorite places, Biltmore Estate!  Love.  Love!

This was our first night away since before Davis was born (he's now 20 months old) so it was a looooonnnggg overdue trip!

We really do adore staying at The Inn.  It's pure bliss!

Here's just a peak of The Inn as we meandered up the winding roads on the Estate.  Aaaaaahh!  It was calling my name!

The moment we checked in, we soaked up this view from the veranda just off The Inn's lobby.  

This was our 6th blissful time staying at The Inn.  The accommodations never disappoint, and these beds are like sleeping on a cloud!

My eyes didn't pop open until 9:00am this morning!  That's right, peeps!  9 o'clock!  

I was like Kate Winslet in The Holiday!

We hiked to the top of the esplanade where I told Kevin to strike a pose.  This is his 1998 prom pose.  

Hey, Kevin!  1998 called and wants its pose back!

So this is his "I don't know how to pose" pose...

This is my "Kate Winslet" pose (again, from The Holiday)....

Back at The Inn, we hung out in a couple of adirondak chairs and took in the peace and the view!

We had dinner Saturday night in the Dining Room at The Inn.  

And after diner, we enjoyed a fireworks show which from a sunset wedding back over at the house.

Just before we left the estate today, we took a quick breeze through the first floor of the house and spent some time lounging on the back logia.  Again, pure bliss!

We count ourselves pretty blessed to have one of our favorite places on earth just in our "back door!"  Huge hugs to Nana for staying with the little ones so Kevin and I could get away for a bit.  It was so nice, and Kevin and I both savored each. and. every. minute. of it!
