My husband surprised me with a visit to the Whimsical Pig Bed and Breakfast right after Thanksgiving. My first thought was that I really didn't have time to be away from home right at the start of the holiday season, but I was so wrong! The minute we arrived at the Whimsical Pig, we were met at the door by Ron and Sue. What a wonderful couple. We shared some wine, crackers and cheese, and good conversation as we got to know this couple and their dream of opening a bed and breakfast. Our room, as well as the entire house, was beautifully decorated for Christmas. It was truly an inspiration for me to go home and try to duplicate what I had seen. We spent a wonderful evening relaxing and enjoying our peaceful surroundings. Our trip turned out to be a great way to start the holiday season. I can't wait to go back in the summer and enjoy the beautiful gardens and spend some time at this wonderful home away from home!!!!
