There’s no place like home for the holidays


There’s no place like home for the holidays. Season's greetings to you and your family from the beautiful mountains of North Carolina where pretty rural stone barns on farms such as this one all decked out for Christmas still dot the landscape.

Merry Christmas

Joyeux Noël

Felix Navidad

Froehliche Weihnachten

Buone Feste Natalizie

Happy Hanukkah

  18. Your rural North Carolina looks very much like rural Virginia. Although I grew up in the city, I love the countryside--and the red clay!!

    Best,
