A New Year on The Road

A brief stay in Nashville attending a wedding reception and visiting friends then found us in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  A few years ago, I took a photography class on-line and through that class I met a woman who was also in the process of adopting from China. We kept in contact and this past fall she came with her family to Atlanta. Anyway, we decided to visit them on our way home. In and of itself, Winston-Salem isn't that special.  Upon first glance my mom and I were scratching our heads for why any one would want to go there, but the city holds a hidden gem in it's historical preservation of the it's early settlement.  The town was settled by the Monrovians a group of people similar to the Quakers who were escaping religious persecution. If you ever visit, don't forget to stop in the bakery and try some of the sugar bread!  Super yummy! The girls had so much fun playing with Carolina and we enjoyed visiting with her parents.
