Back from the mountains
A couple of mornings we drove into Asheville to check out some things we’d never done… the farmer’s market (ripe peaches!), the chocolate lounge (liquid truffle OMG), the artisans at Grove Park Inn and the Downtown Market, and the brewery on Lexington which I had never even noticed because of its location directly across from the bead store. Asheville is one of those places (like San Fran) where I could visit again and again and it never seems the same. I look forward to our traditions (pork with apple-nut stuffing and plum sauce at Weaverville Milling Company – and this time we had a sitter!), but it seems we’ve barely scratched Asheville’s surface so I always look forward to going back. That doesn’t even count the regional things we’re saving until Livi is a little older, like whitewater rafting.
