so, autumn is in full swing here in asheville, north carolina and it just could not be more cozy and beautiful. october is absolutely a stunning month up here in the mountains. but, i’m telling you, this is only the beginning. the beauty, the coziness, the autumn amazingness will only grow more + more.
here’s an example: right now, as i type this, i have candles lit in my living room. a blanket on my feet. a glass or red wine by my side. halloween lights glowing outside my door on the balcony. the debate for north carolina’s next senator on tv (we vote in just 4 weeks – and it will be a big one). and tons of photos to share with you in this post.
yes, i am enjoying a very low key, relaxed night after about 2 glorious weeks of adventure, fun, and friends. i gotta get my balance on, you know. so, here are bunches of snaps from the past 2 weeks – snaps of food, drinks, nature, laughs – of sharing life with one another. and, just as a bonus, they include lina’s high school friend from sweden who came to visit us for 10 days. take a peek!
dinners and beer out on the town – gotta share the avl secrets w/ our swedish friend!
vintage store obsessions
ah-freaking-mazing moments: 7:30 am yoga class + midday mountain ride + $2.50 cans of beer and slices of pizza.
a huge fika group (20 were there!) and then some alone time at my “secret” hiding spot
pub crawl. i mean, we’ve got 15 micro-breweries in asheville. what else to do?!
a small mountain town visit + railroad tracks + true bluegrass + the best burger ever at a lonesome country bar
live music + another brewery + asheville’s drum circle (there is nothing quite like the downtown drum circle. anywhere. ever)
biltmore estate + wine tasting
the first frost + golden sun + the blue ridge parkway
a celebratory last night out with our swedish friend (she left this morning)
dedication: 7:30 am yoga class – even though it was dark + rainy when i left home
you see? i told you it was a lot. hehe. i sure do hope that your autumn/spring has gotten off to a beautiful start. sending you lots of peace and happiness.
