A few weeks ago, we visited our great friends in Asheville. We had a wonderful time soaking up the Northern-like Fall, while spending quality time with wonderful friends.
We traveled for about 3 and a half hours with our friends, Paul and Julie. Okay, it took longer – but that was because of dumb rubberneckers (so it doesn’t count).
We spent the first night at Jamie, Emilie, and baby Carter’s brand new BEAUTIFUL house.
Here is the neighborhood lake. So pretty!
On Saturday, we checked out downtown Asheville. The hubs had beer on the brain (it was a day that ended in “day” – so, duh!), so we checked out Green Man for lunch. There’s a brewery by the same name; 4 of their craft beers were on tap.
After we walked about this hippie, cool city for a little – the hot tub was calling Paul’s name. (Seriously, it was all that he talked about – ha!) It was time to head to the infamous (for good reason) mountain house. YAY!
We did this for an hour or so before even stepping foot in the house…
I mean…wouldn’t you?
Here’s the back of the mountain house…
and here’s the front (facing the mountains)…
There was no TV, phone, or internet-usage all weekend. Instead, we did a lot of eating and drinking and storytelling and hot-tubbing and fire-pitting.
Ahhh – it was glorious.
Please don’t mind my hair in this pic…
Seriously – it was the life.
Julie is the legit fire whisperer. It was much needed because it was chillll-eee that night.
I forgot – we had some baby playtime, too.

We had such a great time! Thanks, Jamie and Emilie, for your hospitality and friendship. We hope to make this trip a yearly Fall event!!!
Have you ever been to Asheville? Do we have to make it there in the summertime? Another season?
p.s.s. We almost got eaten by a bear late night at the mountain house. The boys say it was a bunny, but us girls know that it was at the very least a fox. YIKES!
