As part of our Better Acoustic Tour, we got to play a couple shows, shoot some videos and see some of our favorite sights in North Carolina - our home state and one of our favorite places in the world!
We had a really wonderful experience shooting our cover of "Dream" while in NC. There’s something to sweet and nostalgic about the lyrics and simple melodies of Priscilla Ahn’s music, and we have always wanted to create our own version of a song that means so much to us as sisters. We love the message of this song, that your dreams and hopes are what carry you through life and make it worthwhile, and that God can help you discover who you’re meant to be.
Filming was an unexpected emotional experience for us. We really were those little girls talked about in the song, with dreams of singing and creating music for the world to hear, and then to be back in the place where it all started and realize that those dreams have come true was a humbling and special moment for us. Thank you for allowing us to fulfill our childhood dreams.
One of our favorite places to visit as a family is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. It's the largest privately owned mansion in America, built by George Vanderbilt in 1895. A must-see if you travel through Asheville!
The views from the veranda were incredible.
The Estate overlooks the blue ridge mountains, a sight that immediately makes us feel right at home!
The shops and restaurants at the Biltmore are fun to explore after you tour the house itself.
We also love to explore the grounds and gardens, as well as visit the vineyard for the most delicious grape juice you will ever have!
Living at Biltmore must have been a fairytale!
The greenhouse is full of plants from all over the world! George Vanderbilt filled the property and house with treasures from his travels around the globe, including exotic plants.
We also vlogged our travels in between shows in the video below!
No matter where we are in the world, home is wherever we are together. That being said, nothing compares to the food, people, and beauty of the place we call HOME!
