so we are back after a week in the mountains of asheville. and even though i didn't want to leave, it sure is nice being home and sleeping in MY bed and using MY shower. :)
there's no place like home, after all.
the trip was FANTASTIC. really...the perfect family vacation for us. it had the perfect amounts of good food, nature, relaxation, exploration, and FAMILY TIME. which i treasure so much.
i have to give a shout out to my two "virtual tour guides" kimber leigh and heather. thank you guys SO much for all of the suggestions...it wouldn't have been half as amazing as it was if it wasn't for you!
we had one rainy day where we didn't leave the cabin all day...and j said that was his favorite day. :)
we stayed in chalet quietude, a sweet cabin about 12 miles from asheville.
we hiked the blue ridge parkway, visited looking glass falls in the rain, visited the biltmore, ate in asheville, shopped in asheville, and left without getting to do LOTS of other things that were available...just not enough time! we're already planning a trip back in the fall.
i will have to share photos from the BRP and the biltmore in another post. the photos alone warrant their own post, nevermind the stories! :)
this week i'll share more pictures and words about our trip and the family favorites that we found.
the trip was initally much more for J than me. he's the one who loves biking,hiking,running...just being outdoors WAY more than i do.
but i have to admit, it was the perfect place to visit.
