Can you believe it's already almost 2016? This year has been full to the brim with blessings and adventures near and far. This past year, I've really taken time to explore more right at home. Waco, Texas is overflowing with great places to visit and things to see. A major highlight for Waco this year was the opening of Magnolia Market at the Silos.
Magnolia and Waco have been made famous by HGTV's Fixer Upper, and the town hasn't been the same since! Magnolia Market is frequented by people from all over the country, putting Waco on the map. I have visited Magnolia twice since it opened at the Silos, including the grand opening. I visited for Fall and again in December. I took a million pictures to capture this great, family place. Not only is there shopping, there are plenty of things for the whole family, a lawn for games, a garden, outdoor kids reading area, food trucks, and, in 2016, a bakery (just announced yesterday). I definitely recommend getting there early if you plan on visiting, after that there are plenty of places nearby to visit. I'll do a whole post on that soon! For now, here are lots of photos of Magnolia Market at the Silos for you to enjoy.
Hi there! Much has happened since I was able to post last. Christmas is almost here, and I've traveled to a couple of states! A couple of weeks ago, I was able to visit my dear friend in Tennessee. She moved there a little over a year ago, and I was so excited to be able to visit her. During my short stay, we ventured to Asheville, North Carolina to explore the Biltmore. Biltmore Estate is a massive property built by the Vanderbilts in the late 1800s.
The architecture paired with the over the top Christmas decor was right up my alley! The estate overlooks 8000+ acres and the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. The tour was a bit pricey, but I felt like it was worth it! The estate also boasts areas for visitors to stay overnight, restaurants,gardens, and shops. We stuck close to the home, and there was plenty to see! If you are ever in the area, I definitely recommend checking it out. Book tickets 7 days in advance for $10 off. We weren't allowed to take photos inside, but wow! The wood work, the wall papers, the painted ceilings, every single detail was incredible! I made up for the lack of photos inside with tons of photos outside. I carried my big camera this time, sure to zoom in close to capture the most intricate details of the facade. I have lots of photos to share. I hope you enjoy them!
