Visiting WNC Waterfalls

NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS. If you ever visit western North Carolina, make sure you do a waterfall tour. ¬†Below is my friend Megan at High Falls. This is the two of us at Hooker Falls. A lot of the falls require a short walk/hike to get to the best vantage points but it’s completely worth dedicating […]

Monday…again

For some reason, I just can’t wake up today, therefore instead of an interesting post, you get a weekend recap. It was a great/busy/why do I always over eat type of weekend. Friday after Mike got home from work we packed up the car and drove out to the lake. We camped for the night, […]

Yep, we’re engaged!

So, yesterday was the most amazing birthday EVER, to say the least. Mike drove up and surprised me at the office with flowers AND a giant cookie cake. I was thrilled because I thought I’d be spending my 22nd alone. I had plans to go running in the afternoon and possibly get a mani/pedi. But […]

Last few days in Asheville

I’m leaving Asheville in a little over a week. It’s kind of sad. I didn’t do nearly as much exploring as I wanted to. Oh well. Just an excuse to come back and visit.

Why I’ll never have a real job

Hope my editor isn’t reading this… I will NEVER be able to have an office job. My attention span and inability to sit still for extended periods of time render me USELESS in an office environment. For example, today (when I should have been finishing an article I’m writing) I took pictures of myself with […]

Dear Spring, Thanks for showing up in Asheville for a fleeting moment and then disappearing, only to leave us with a forecast of YAWN for the next week or so. Rainy with a high of 55? PASS. Sincerely, Why did I leave Florida? Anyway… Steeplechase in Aiken was this weekend. Here is the proof:   […]

Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

It’s time again! Awkward – Running my laps down at the riverside and passing the SAME couple four times. She was pregnant and I could feel her eyes BURNING my back everytime I wheezed by. Like…sorry you gained enough baby weight to distribute amongst an entire starving African town. I was just waiting for her […]

And a horse, too

This handsome fellow couldn’t get enough of my charm and good looks and stayed close, simultaneously eye-ballin’ my goodies and gnawin’ on some grassy noms while I was doing my photoshoot today in Weaverville. I tried to have an educated conversation with him but all he wanted to do was make faces. Jerk.  This haws […]
