This summer is flying by for me and my family. In just a few weeks we will dropping our oldest off at college. Wow! Time goes by way too fast. Last week Catie and I spent a few days in Chapel Hill for orientation. The two days of sessions were long and boring. There was a lot of information packed into a short amount of time and my brain was on overload. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Fortunately, I decided to splurge and spend my nights in the historic Carolina Inn instead of the dorms. The inn was built in 1924 and is located on the university campus. I couldn't have made a better decision.
From every angle the inn is beautiful.
Dinner on this porch would be wonderful, wouldn't it?
The landscape was so pretty here and all over the campus.
I can only imagine how beautiful this lobby must have been in 1924.
The walls of the hallways were lined with historical pictures and information. One could walk and look for days and never have time to read it all.
The huge hall lined with windows was one of my favorite spots.
I just loved the benches tucked in between the trees.
There was beauty to be seen at every turn.
Of course there was only one thing that mattered after a long day of sitting and listening...
You thought I was going to say the beds, didn't you?
Another bonus of this trip was getting to meet a fellow blogger, Richella. Her blog, Imparting Grace, is one of my favorites. She is every bit as gracious as I expected her to be. I felt as though I had known her for a long time. Isn't it nice to know that behind all of these blogs are wonderful people that we can also call friends? I would encourage each of you to meet face to face with your virtual friends if the opportunity ever arises. You won't be disappointed.
