Christmas at Biltmore Estate

Dining table decorated for Christmas at Biltmore Estate
Biltmore Estate at Christmas We took a trip to Asheville, NC recently, and beyond eating a TON of great food, we finally made to Biltmore Estate. I wasn't completely sure what to expect, but now I'm dying to return in warmer weather when the gardens and grounds will be in...
I just got back from my first train trip in the US! We took an Amtrak train for the two-day trip from Toledo, Ohio to San Diego, California. We sprung for one of the largest compartments they offer, the "bedroom." It sleeps two, and includes a private toilet and shower,...

Indianapolis

Some snaps from a weekend jaunt to Indianapolis. Above, a corner of General American Donuts great space. Go to Ralph's for great cake and pie! Incredible strawberry rhubarb mead at New Day Craft (kicking myself for not bringing any home). The Indiana Medical History Museum -- full post on this...
I just stumbled across these state flower paintings by Etsy shop Tigersheep Friends. Aren't they great? Artist Sarah Walsh doesn't have all the states yet, but maybe you could persuade her your home state should be the next to be painted. There's no Ohio print right now (we're the scarlet...

Really loving the Western Realty photo series by Ed Freeman! The photos are digitally altered to make decaying buildings that might normally appear in more urban settings even more isolated and dramatic...like a rural mirage. (via Miss Moss)

Mid-Century San Francisco

Photographer Fred Lyon documented the people and landmarks of San Francisco for decades, culminating in his recently published photo book. His photos have everything I love; history, strong architectural lines, and a heavy dose of moodiness thanks to the San Francisco fog!(via My Modern Met)
Last week, we took a quick jaunt up to Traverse City, Michigan for some autumnal goodness. We were a little early for the full glory of autumn leaves, but did find some fantastic food and drink! Philips Cider Mill was a perfect roadside stop on the way up, with fresh...
