Our family went away to the mountains this weekend. We were expecting to see some beautiful fall color but got an unexpected treat. When we got to our in-laws’ house in Hendersonville, NC we were greeted with three inches of snow on the ground. It was like a winter wonderland. What a rare treat! The kids did not expect to be able to frolic and have snowball fights on the first of November, the earliest on record for our area. We schlepped about downtown after a scrumptuous meal. We visited some quaint shops. We felt like we were in a scene from Star’s Hollow on the Gilmore Girls. That was just the therapy we needed away from our busy lives, even if it was for only one day.
