little weekend jaunt

During the mania of spring 2010 was my hubby and I’s fourth wedding anniversary.   He was sweet enough to book us a little getaway, but leaving town wasn’t an option in the middle of Earth month, RiverRun and launching loyale’s spring 2010 collection (the downside to being married on Earth Day, I suppose).  We had to reschedule and this past weekend, we skipped town and drove the majestic Blue Ridge Parkway to Pisgah National Forest. 

We stayed at the Pisgah Inn, which is actually a glorified motel, however it boasts the most spectacular, unobstructed views of the Blue Ridge Mountains!  We lolled around the balcony reading books, went hiking miles and miles (where I saw a black bear on the trail and ran the opposite direction), enjoyed viewing some of the beautiful water falls in the area and ate delicious food.   We also saw Cold Mountain (it is an actual place), which was the inspiration behind the incredible Charles Frazier book; apparently his great, great-uncle lived in a neighboring town and was the muse for the main character, Inman. 

All in all it was such a pleasant weekend…We really love the forest and now I am officially obsessing over this tree house build by Baumraum so we can live amongst the trees…

I cannot believe it is already the middle of the summer!  I hope you are having a good one…

xoxo, Jenny
