the week that was all of the best asheville places + people // 31

Oh, it’s so hard to say goodbye to our trip home to the mountains of North Carolina. These ancient, magical, soul-filled mountains.  To be honest, I was a bit nervous about coming “home” to Asheville and my parents’ place. I anticipated having that “what the hell have we done by making Sweden our home” feeling.
