Asheville Anniversary Trip

This past Saturday through Monday, John and I celebrated our anniversary in Asheville. Instead of a long recap, I'll recapture our trip through pictures.

We left for Asheville Saturday morning after a big pancake breakfast. We stopped at Mt. Pisgah along the way for a beautiful hike.

We arrived in Asheville late afternoon and checked into the beautiful B&B that we stayed at, which has been around since 1899! That evening we headed to Grove Park Inn to see the sunset and have dinner outside at their Sunset Terrace. At dinner, it was amazing to reflect on what was going on twelve months ago and all of the blessings to where we are today.

On Sunday, we spent the entire day (i.e. 7 hours!) exploring the Biltmore. I had visited a long time ago and loved it, so it was fun to take several tours, learning the history of the house, what guests stayed there, and the story behind all of the land. Exploring the beautiful gardens was also a highlight!

On Monday (after John and I played a competitive game of checkers at the B&B - John won!), we walked around downtown Asheville and had lunch at a delicious vegetarian restaurant. Before heading back home, we stopped in a French bakery for some sipping chocolate - yum!

It was the perfect way to celebrate our first year of marriage!
