When you blog everyday, there comes a time when you need a break! I was at that point last week! So we packed the car, I tried to remember what my mom always checks around the house before leaving for a week and we were on our way! As we backed out of the driveway. I looked at Michael and shouted “Happy Vacation!!”. It really seemed like a holiday to us! We left on a Monday and spent the next four days visiting family, friends and relaxing at the Greenbrier!We started our trip with a visit to Michael’s Aunt Susan’s house and then spent the next day with his Grandma in Charleston, WV. Then we headed to the Greenbrier to RELAX! I have pictures of everything, don’t you worry.
The Greenbrier is such a beautiful historic resort with amazing views of the West Virginian mountains. However, I like my favorite part were the TEAL walls in the lobby! While the decorating style of the Greenbrier isn’t necessarily my taste… it’s still beautiful! And so impressive! Michael and I walked in and I started snapping pictures!! Tons of them! Mirrors, chandeliers, old doors… I took pictures of it ALL! I was fun for me. When was the last time I took pictures for FUN?! Um…. I can’t even remember! Sometimes it’s easy for me to forget that photography is my hobby too. It can very easily become just a JOB and that’s not cool! So vacation was full of pictures and I loved it. We sat by the pool, got a massage, ate great food and had fun exploring the GIGANTIC property of the Greenbrier. We even went on a tour of the secret bunker that was built for congress during the cold war. That tour was ALL Michael’s idea…. history nerd. He enjoyed the bunker tour and I enjoyed taking pictures of teacups and mirrors… we’re even! So enjoy a little peek into our vacation! We’ll start with some pictures of Aunt Susan and Uncle Ed’s beautiful house! I’ve been visiting here since high school when Michael and I were dating and I have always LOVED it!
Can’t forget the dogs…. they’re a huge part of the family!
