Mountain Getaway 2017: Dillard

Last year, my dad decided that he wanted to continue an old family tradition and head to the mountains after Christmas. Growing up, my grandparents and great-grandparents lived in the mountains of NC and every Christmas my family would make the trek up there to spend some time with them. Some of my fondest childhood memories occurred in these mountains and I’m so excited to give Baker the same opportunities.

We rented a lake house on Lake Lure last year but this year, we tried something different and went to Dillard, GA. A few days after Christmas, we headed up the mountain to spend a few days with my parents, grandparents, and most of my siblings. Cory and I look forward to this trip every year and we can’t wait to continue the mountain tradition with Baker.

Mountain Getaway 2016: Lake Lure

Growing up, my grandparents and great-grandparents lived in the mountains of NC and every Christmas my family would make the trek up there to spend some time with them. After my great-grandparents passed away, my grandparents moved to SC to be closer to family and the trips, obviously, stopped.

So this year, my dad decided that he wanted to start the tradition afresh and take a few days to head back to the mountains, to end our year with some quality family time and start the new year off rejuvenated.

Even though we weren’t back at my grandparents’, we rented a lake house on Lake Lure and headed up on Christmas day with most of my siblings, my parents, and my grandparents. We had such a great time and look forward to going back next year!
