I took a ton of video footage during our trip to Asheville, so I really don’t have all that many photos. But I thought I’d share the ones I do have! That sounds like my parents when I ask them why my older brother has five baby photo albums and I have half of one. “Oh Meg, video cameras came out when you were a baby!” Suuuure. 😉

Our little cabin was actually in Weaverville, NC, but it was just about 10 minutes away from Asheville. We heard there was going to be snow, so we booked it on a whim using VRBO—here’s the link if you’re interested in staying there. It was perfect for us because we wanted something small and cozy, rustic but with all the conveniences we needed for a baby, and nothing too remote. There were other homes around, so it felt safe. Plus, Weaverville was actually a precious little town! We loved Blue Mountain Pizza for lunch and Well Bred Bakery for treats. Both were just down the street from the cabin.

This was the view we woke up to on Saturday morning! It was neat because we drove up with no snow, then saw it start falling when we arrived, and then woke up to this. By the way, all of you that get snow all the time are probably like, “Yes, and??” We never ever see snow in Charleston, so this was a big thing for us!

Yep, that was Brandon crashing into the trees.

On Saturday, we drove into town to visit the Grove Park Inn. It was my first time there and all I could think about was going back to stay there (without Watson!) and spending all day at the spa.

Judging by Watson’s face, cheerios < a chocolate croissant and mocha frappe.

Maybe I’ll get crafty and merge all my video footage into a vlog to share with you guys! It was such a relaxing, perfect weekend getaway. Quiet and peaceful. The kind of trip that recharges your batteries and we hope to go back to this little cabin each year.

If you missed my two outfit posts from this trip, they are here and here!

    I checked the other posts, but didn't see those slippers linked. Are they uggs?

    Hey there! Is this an AirBnB? We live in Asheville and I’d love to do a weekend getaway there!

    Hey there! Do you remember the name of the house you stayed in? It looks like the link is no longer working but we’re looking to book a trip this fall/winter and would love to stay here if it’s still available!
