I'm borrowing the idea for today's post from Rob. He wrote about having the instinct to take advantage of those opportunities that don't come along everyday. Even for those of us that are adamant about following the rules, sometimes you just gotta break 'em. It may not sound like much to some, but taking a picture in a "forbidden" place can be pretty exciting.
Rob issued a challenge to own up if we had ever taken any pictures in the Biltmore house . Well, unfortunately I was never able to make it there, but I'll up you one. Here's my entry:
In the spring of 2003, I traveled to London to fulfill a lifelong dream of visiting Europe. While there, I visited Westminster Abbey. Walking under the great cathedral ceiling and among effigies of those long dead, where kings and queens had been crowned, was like a dream come true for me. Against all the rules, I snapped a few pictures on the sly. A great memento to remind me of that place in time.

Yep, some rules are just made to be broken. Be sure that you remember that when a certain precious little girl gets older and does things and goes places she was told not too! We all do it and think mom's and dad's don't know. BUT, they do they just don't always make a big deal out of it or even mention it. Its part of growing up and spreading one's wings! :)
Love the picture by the way :)
Hugs, Dad

Christie, your picts from Westminister Abbey certainly turned out better than ours did this past summer. I guess I was just too nervous about being caught as the WA docents were standing only a few feet away from us at the time. Thank you again for the awesome pict of the de Sausmarez plaque.
Love, Mom and Dad
