Blowing Rock

Blowing Rock, North Carolina's charm is unmatched. This cozy little mountain village is one of my favorite spots to visit in the North Carolina mountains.

I love to enjoy its easy pace by strolling down Main Street and perusing the shops. The scenery is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the air is refreshing (even in June).

This is, after all, the place that inspired Jan Karon's Mitford series which charmed millions of readers.

This picturesque village situated in the mountains off of Highway 321 is a definite must-see (I'm starting to sound like an advertisement).

We leisurely and aimlessly walked about town stopping with the kids to play in the park and then absorbing as much inspiration as we could from "Arts in the Park." I felt so inspired just being around such artists.

Our cottage was a perfect cozy little get away for the weekend. We got some much needed family time

I love this picture... the kids absolutely adore their daddy and they just float around him.
It was a truly lovely time. There is no other way to explain it.
