North Carolina

Our girls’ weekend is finally here. We’ve been counting down the days. We left today to go down to Asheville. 

Did you know there is a Russell Stover outlet by Severville?  An excellent rest stop. Especially since L is a chocolate freak.  

As we got closer to the destination, we stopped and picked up dinner in Mars Hill. 

We recommend the pulled pork sandwiches!  We arrived at the cabin up a windy road. It’s got a great view and a pretty interior. 

I’ll let you know what we think of the hot tub!

Any Asheville recommendations?



As I was talking to a friend today, money isn’t unlimited.  I can’t go everywhere that I want when I want.  However, I am a big fan of reading to explore our world in other ways.  I track the books that I read and want to read on Goodreads.  Are we friends on there?  If not, please feel free to add me!

Donut Trail

Butler County has created a donut trail.

Here’s the Enquirer’s coverage:

Sounds fun doesn’t it?  Not going to do them all in one day because sweetness overload.  However, a friend and I are going to try to hit one each week.  We started this week with Martin’s in Trenton.



Here’s the link to the passport if you want to start

Let me know if you do try it!
