My husband and I have been away a few days to the AQS Quilt Show in Knoxville. I enjoyed seeing all of the quilts. So much inspiration there too! I also did a little shopping too :) We went to the quilt show on Thursday.
We arrived in Pigeon Forge on Wednesday and had the day to go to the Titanic Museum. It was such a treat.
Here is the replica they have built. You are not allowed to take any pictures inside the "Titanic". I could have spent many hours looking at the items they have displayed and read about the stories. We were given a boarding pass as we entered of a person who was on the Titanic when it sank. At the end of the tour you see if your person survived and mine and my husband's passenger survived. What an amazing story.
There is a new restaurant across from the Christmas Inn where we stay and it is called the Partridge and Pear. We were given VIP passes through the Inn for our meal on Thursday night before it opened on Friday. It was not only delicious but beautiful inside. Each dining room has a name and we were seated in the "Angel Room". Angels are handpainted on the ceiling. I felt as if Amber was watching down on us the entire meal. I just sat there thinking of all the rooms ... we were seated in the "Angel Room".
It is a beautiful restaurant on the outside as well!
Here is a waiting area in the restaurant. I love the huge fireplace and mantel. Of course it was decorated with pears and partridges to go with the Christmas theme! Gorgeous place!
Flowers outside the hotel. I wonder why my flowers do not look like this! Maybe I need a full time gardener! LOL
The pond with waterfall in front of the hotel.
The outside looking up to the fifth floor where we stayed. I am always glad to get away for a few days but I am definitely a "homebody".
It was a very different vacation for us :( It was the first time in about 20 years we had been to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg by ourselves. We always had Amber with us.
Oh how I miss my oldest daughter! It will be one year the 24th that she went to Heaven. I will do a special post for her later this week. I have been very emotional ... please pray for me and my family!
Thanks for visiting and God Bless!
