surprise elements

To kick off the new year, my husband and I went adventuring! We learned that trips don’t always go as planned, but that gives them a nice kick of fun surprises. It was such a fun “getaway” — I loved every minute of it!

We went the long way to Blowing Rock in order to visit Asheville and to find out that the Blue Ridge Parkway was closed that particular day–making our trip longer and lovelier.

Upon arriving to Blowing Rock, I found out that sometimes things look even better in person than they do online and that family owned inns are neat!

I never even knew Blowing Rock, NC existed. I hope to return one day. It was so quaint and warm, despite the below freezing temps!ImageI love Bison Burgers…I wish I had taken a picture of the meal I ate at Blowing Rock Ale House. One of those burgers you dream about for days.


Loads of snow plus my Honda Accord equalled not making it up to Beech Mountain. No prob bob, we ski Sugar Mountain! Thanks for being fifteen minutes apart from each other.

Surprise! I forgot how terrible I am at skiing! But never fear, my hubs rocked and cheered me on the whole time. I love this dude.Image



Hello, 2014!

I am greeting you with open arms!

2013 was pretty incredible. It’s the year I cried when I moved out of the yellow, corner room of The Cheetah. It’s the year I will always count back to when I’m old and gray and trying to remember how long I’ve been married. It’s the year I turned 24. It’s the year I began to live with a boy.¬†

Here are some pictures of our marriage adventures thus far. From our honeymoon, to out first meal cooked, to our first camping trip, to our Christmas cookie baking and decorating, to our first Christmas, to freezing our butts off in Nashville.
