our getaway weekend in asheville [in a nutshell]:

thursday was for a drive with books on tape, loving our tiny rental cottage, popping champagne, grilling kabobs, enjoying one of our coveted bottles of wine from italy, and catching up.

friday was for a quiet breakfast, a two hour hike off the blue ridge parkway, the sun, beers + snacks with katie and drew at wicked weed brewery, a short break at the cottage, dinner at seven sows bourbon and larder [a great recommendation by caroline — quality southern cuisine + bourbon at their very best], cocktails at sazerac, basketball at pack’s tavern, and a cheesy rom-com at home before bed.

saturday was for getting a later start, another hike [even prettier than the day before], a trip to the wedge brewery so i could have my favorite saison, another stop at wicked weed, and dinner at salsa’s [which we’ve been looking forward to since the last time we were here — and it delivered!].

on sunday we hopped back in the car and spent a few hours with mr. c’s family for easter on the way home. it was a truly lovely weekend with my main man [+ best girl riley].
