Asheville, North Carolina

Hi! How's your week going? Did you have a good weekend? Did you eat something great for dinner tonight? Did something funny happen at work? I can't believe it's already Wednesday night. I also can't believe my little brother started high school this week (!!!). I've been running around since we got home from a little vacation in North Carolina Monday night trying to get things done before I leave to visit my parents this weekend. I was hand-washing clothes at 10:30 last night. Woof. I feel like I haven't taken a moment to sit and chat. So, tell me, how are things?

Brian and I drove to North Carolina last Friday for his friend's wedding and to do a bit of exploring. We fell in love with the mountains and Asheville and can't wait to go back. Everything was so beautiful, it made us question how into city life we are (especially since we're not over this). 

Brian's friend Vincas and his new wife Giedre are Lithuanian and incorporated lots of little cultural touches to their ceremony and reception, it was so neat to see.

On Sunday we drove up Blue Ridge Parkway and were in awe of the mountains and beautiful scenes. Asheville was really hot and muggy, it was crazy how much chillier and foggy things got as we drove up the mountains.

That night we walked through downtown Asheville, ate snacks, window shopped. And, after weeks of wanting to go, we finally saw the movie Boyhood. Have you seen it? I can't stop thinking about it. I loved it.

This was such a great weekend. Sign me up for another. I'll take it now.


  1. Ahhh, I'm on your BLOG! :) That just made me super happy!! Also: finding out you're a blogger made me even MORE happy! Be prepared for much blog stalking to commence. ;)

  2. Oh, btw - love the photo of Vincas with all of you guys! Do you mind emailing it to me? Vincas was just bemoaning the fact that he couldn't remember if he had gotten a group shot with all of you, so he'll be super happy to see this!
