Did you know I have a castle in my backyard? (well, 15 minutes away)
This is a story about a beautiful princess.......
Once upon a time.....in the land of Tennessee, there lived a beautiful princess. She was the most beautiful princess I have ever seen.
Due to stolen content I had to start to truncate my posts. Please continue to read!
She walked amongst the land with poise and grace, dreaming of her knight in shining armour.
(I am having fun with this)
Every year in May this becomes the backdrop of the Renaissance Festival. Funny story is the man that built this castle was my high school photographer, Mike Freeman. He did my prom pictures and graduation pictures. In the 70's he had a dream of building this castle and it became a reality. He continues the dream today as he adds more to the structure and grounds each year.
It is named after his wife Gwynn.
My little princess visited with me. She approached the castle and seemed to belong there.
The bottom floor is the only part that is opened to view. That is because they live in it.
There were tons of arches and brick. This is the kitchen dining area. It was hard to get any pictures because there were tons of people.
My favorite part was the chandelier. It lowers down by remote control so the candles can be lit.
Back to my princess.....lol
She dreams one day to live in the castle with her prince.
Until then... she thinks of all the things she can accomplish. All the goals she can achieve!
Faraway lands to visit.....
You see, this princess can do anything she sets her sights for. (OK I am a little bias!) But...As the Queen...I can be!
So I sit and wait to watch it all unveil! How exciting it is!
I hope you enjoyed our little story today.
If we all set our minds to it ....we can be anything we imagine.
So make a wish.... say a prayer....work hard....set your sites high!

Mike Freeman had a dream and it became a reality! A grand one at that!
