The Conservatory

I'm listening to the rain hit the roof and it is calming my restless spirit. Especially after the day I've had. I had to keep my door shut at work for most of the day just to be able to complete one task in its entirety. This time of the year is horrible - everything has to be done yesterday. Oh well - work crap is boring. No one wants to hear that.
Brian and I took off to the Biltmore Estate one day for lunch and snapped a few pics at the Conservatory. It was nice to get away. It was like we slipped into another world for a few short moments in time. When we are driving up to the house, I like to picture what it was like for the Vanderbilt women to come home after traveling abroad. Were their minds buzzing with what they had to do when they got back? When the next party was and what had to get done before the guests arrived in a few days. Were they snobby? Were they even real? Its just that they seem so dreamy and far away. Hard to imagine people actually living in a life so full of decadence. Something I will never know. No complaining - I am blessed with so so many things. It's more like peeking into a foggy window watching lavish parties unfold with women in gorgeous gowns and men smoking cigars. Then young loves sneaking around this conservatory....trying to find a place to kiss....

It's lovely how your purse matches your blouse. Great color for fall tights as well (:
