We have been pretty busy here lately, but busy doing fun things! Just the way I like it! 😉

Randy and I had a great time on our day date a couple of weeks ago. My sweet mother-in-law came up for the weekend to watch our little while we got out of the house and enjoyed Asheville. We stopped by some of our favorite places and enjoyed our favorite foods.

The first stop was Urban Orchard, a cidery that I have been wanting to go to for a long time. They opened when I was pregnant, so I am just now getting a chance to go. And it did not disappoint! They had 8 different hard ciders to chose from that tasted any where from sweet, dry, to spicy. The vanilla habanero was my favorite!

We also got their meat and cheese plate with our flights. The food was either grown or prepared here locally – apples from Hendersonville and the cheese and meat from Hickory Nut Farm. We loved everything we tried! If you are looking for a place to try that isn’t a brewery, try a cidery!

Our next stop on our date was downtown Asheville, where we enjoyed the shopping and our favorite restaurants – French Broad Chocolate Lounge and Bouchon. We had such a great day in Asheville. It was a wonderful break, having fun, just the two of us.

After our date, Randy went on a week long business trip, so I went to visit family for the week. While there I chopped off my hair! I know, right? I cut off about 6-8 inches! It feels so much better. I love my long hair, but it was giving me headaches. It was definitely time for a change! And a huge thank you to my wonderful father for watching Ada while I got my hair cut!

This past weekend, we went to the Firefly Festival at the Blue Ghose Brewery. Pretty day, food trucks, beer and music – perfect day! We had a blast! Even Ada loved it! She loved listening to the music, she would dance and clap her hands. And she of course, loved all the food. She tried garlic parmesan french fries, toppings from our hotdogs, and strawberry sorbet.

We have had so much fun here lately! But I guess it is time to slow down and get some rest! Hope you all have a restful, beautiful Sunday!
