Endurance develops strength of character in us~ Romans 5:4 NLT

Glenwood is a small town, but we've found out that it doesn't lack for upscale places to visit! Today, we were invited to an open house at a beautiful facility just to the north of town. I didn't get a photo as we went in - it was snowing a cold, wet snow that reminded us of Western Washington.
Bella Terre is the opposite direction from where we have Farah boarded, so obviously she's in a good neighborhood :-) Walking through the doors, was like walking into a town in Sicily! What an amazing difference it was! The building itself demanded your attention almost as much as the photography display.
With all the warm, rich colors & we soon left our coats & began admiring the huge variety of photographs. The very large room was filled with round tables, plenty of seating & the venue included a bar & wine bar with a nice selection of wines.
Tree & Sleigh~
Seated at our table, when I looked up - I could have easily imagined myself in a completely different country. We enjoyed hot spiced apple cider & a selection of fresh hors d'oeuvres. There were plenty of beautiful Christmas cookies too!
The photos themselves demanded attention - went spent a pleasant afternoon admiring each piece. It was really the perfect time of year for our first visit. This venue is available for private parties, weddings, etc. & I can see why it's so popular.
Walking out the door into the snow was almost surreal! We crept up the hill & onto the road back home. A great way to spend a snowy December day!
