Weekend Getaway

The hubs and I took a relaxing weekend together in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, we just got back today, hence the no posts for a few days. We both left our laptops at home so we wouldn’t be distracted from focusing on the gorgeous weather, mountains, and time together.

We took our kayaks to the lake the first day. The water was like glass. Perfection. Saturday, we drove to Chimney Rock Park and hiked 1.5 miles to Hickory Nut Falls and climbed the GINORMOUS stairway to the top of Chimney Rock. The views = unbelievable. I’ve never seen anything like it. All the huffing and puffing, racing heart rates, and reluctant admittance of how out of shape we are was COMPLETELY worth it. Here’s why:


So that was the best part of our weekend. The rest of the time was spent driving through the winding roads, taking in all the beauty of the scenery, and stopping at cute little shops that are meant to distract tourists such as us.

It was exactly what he and I needed. A quick weekend together to get away from hectic everyday living. It was a time we were able to sit back and relax and just appreciate the serenity of nature and time spent together.
