Asheville Recap & Life Lately

Whew, where has the time gone?

How is it already May?

Better yet, how is it May 11th?!

Bah!

Asheville was wonderful. We enjoyed countless local beers, the Biltmore Estate gardens in full bloom, beautiful historic accommodations, and of course, amazing food. Here are some photos from our Asheville adventure!

If you’ve got a free weekend this summer, make your way to Asheville and be sure keep in mind where to…

STAY // Rankin House Inn or the 1900 Inn on Montford.

EAT // Cúrate, Tupelo Honey Cafe, Corner Kitchen, Table, Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria, and let’s be honest… there are far too many to list.

DRINK // Asheville Brewing Co., Hi-Wire Brewing, Green Man Brewery, Twin Leaf Brewery, Burial Beer Co., and if you’re into cocktails… Nightbell (owned by Head Chef Katie Button of Cúrate).

DO // Brewery tours, visit the Biltmore Estate (and don’t forget to do the wine tasting and enjoy live music on the lawn in Antler Hill Village), check the calendar for Asheville Community Theatre, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, or just kick it at your awesome B&B.

By the way, many of you already know via Facebook… but I am very excited to announce that I am the newest sales associate at Dovecote at Fearrington Village! Yep, got engaged at Fearrington, got married at Fearrington, and now working at Fearrington. It’s basically a dream come true. I’m so thrilled to be a part of such an amazing team. Also, the beautiful peony at the top of this post is a recent Fearrington garden snap!

Enjoy your week, and stay cool!

Worthwhile Weekends

What a beautiful weekend! Yes, it was a little chilly on Saturday, but we’ve been lucky enough to have sunny and cloudless skies all weekend.

Trail

Saturday morning, we had a delicious brunch at Another Broken Egg Cafe in North Hills with our friends Gerry and Erika and their precious little 1-year-old son, Dylan. In the afternoon, Richard and I walked the greenway trail from Meredith College, my alma mater, to the North Carolina Museum of Art. It was nice to spend some quiet time together (and walk off the beignets). Since Richard works full time during the week, it’s really important to us that we make the most of our weekends together.

We crawled into the “Cloud Chamber” in the NCMA park.

Cloud Chamber

It may have been a little late in the afternoon to see the real camera obscura effect, but it was still really neat! After hiking around for a while, we headed over to Raleigh Brewing (across from Meredith) for a few coffee porters (see header photo).

We did a quick 3-mile run around Bond Lake in Cary today, so now I feel like being rather lazy for the rest of the afternoon.

Anddddd Gretchen spent most of the weekend napping.
