Biltmore House – A Real Life Fantasy

On Saturday I drove up to Asheville with family to see the Biltmore Estate.  I’d been there before, but it had been years. This time they allowed photos, and so I’m thrilled to be able to share them here.  Of course, you know the photos just can’t capture the grandeur of the home that once belonged to George Vanderbilt. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it.  I only wish we had more time.  We didn’t get to see the gardens...

A Snowy Day - Photo Journal

Snowy Day in the South – A Photo Journal

Friday night brought big fluffy flakes and just cold enough temps to give us about 3.5 inches of snow. I slept with one eye open all night, watching those big fluffy white flakes dance in the wind. Oh what a beautiful sight for this Southern girl. Jimmy almost always has to go to work anytime it snows, leaving me alone with only my fur-babies and camera. I wasn’t up five minutes when I grabbed that camera and went to work....

Historic Pickens, SC

Yesterday a friend and I took a walk along Main Street in Pickens, SC.  This is a quaint little Southern town in the upstate of South Carolina. Pickens is considered a mountain town with – Glassy Mountain, Tabel Rock and Table Rock State Park within a few miles of it.  Another attraction close to downtown Pickens is Hagood Grist Mill which is no longer operational but routinely hosts southern heritage festivals. Some of the photos I took are random, and some...

Moonlit Night

The Lesser Light

His splendor is like the sunshine, I’m the lesser light. He is like a glorious morning, I am as the moonlit night. The sun in all its glory calls all of nature to awake. But even in the nighttime, another light God did joyfully make. A light that reflects the glory of the One who did create, all things great and small. Though not as bright as the sunshine, Its light is sufficient to lead us home. So glad I am...

For the Love of Cats

I didn’t own a cat until a little over two years ago. I got along my whole life without one. Really I never even wanted one. Me? I’m a dog person. Dogs are loyal, they run to you and wag their tails at you when you return home. Cats are aloof and do their own thing. But about four years ago, I noticed a colony of feral cats hanging out near an old shed, in the back lot of the...

Slow and Steady Take Us Where We Want to Go

Today, we live in a world of all things instant it seems. It hasn’t always been this way. When I was a kid, we would take photos with our little “Instamatic Camera,” which wasn’t so instant at all. We took an entire roll of film without being able to edit or even see what we had taken. Then when the roll was complete, we would take to the nearest K-mart or other photo-processor, and have it developed. After about five...
