Celebrating an early Christmas!

Enjoying the Tupelo Honey Cafe
 Jonathan & I had a weekend getaway to Asheville, North Carolina.  Originally, we planned to take Peyton with us to Asheville.  As the trip grew closer, my mom asked to keep Peyton for the weekend, & after thinking about it, I said yes! Therefore, it was the longest time we have been away from our baby boy.  We missed Peyton, but loved every minute together, without a 1-year-old.
After learning we lived only 2 hours away from Asheville, & knowing on my 'Bucket List' listed "Visiting the Biltmore at Christmas," I begged Jonathan to go.  We decided this trip would be our Christmas gift to one another.  I think it was one of my favorite gifts I've ever received! The home is amazing - 38 Christmas trees, 1200 poinsettias, ornate decor, good food, beautiful gardens (even in the fall!), etc.  We enjoyed some delicious restaurants in downtown Asheville

The Biltmore! Asheville, NC
If you need a weekend getaway, I would highly recommend going to visit the Biltmore House & Asheville, NC - good restaurants, beautiful mountains, & fun shops!

  1. We love visiting the Biltmore Estate! As a child, my family visited so often that I could repeat the tour word-for-word. This is one of my favorite getaway spots...I'm glad you enjoyed it!
