Hello Dear Bloggy Friends!
I have missed the blog world and am SO excited to get back to it!
We have had a very crazy month, but things are going well and I haven’t even lost my mind yet!
In between juggling work and other responsibilities, we have been trying to do some last minute activities before we move. A few weekends ago we went to New Jersey to see the longest miniature train in the world. It was….an experience.
It was literally 8 miles of tiny train tracks with tons of miniature villages.
It was insane. Not necessarily my personal passion, but it was an experience and definitely a memory.
After I finished my last day with the twinnies (I only cried a little…), I went home to Kentucky to take Mumsie to a doctor’s appointment in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
On our long trip, we stopped in Asheville, North Carolina. Neither one of us had been to Asheville and we had a lovely little visit. We stayed in a little Bed and Breakfast, the Beaufort House Inn.
It was so gorgeous!
It was a beautiful inn! The rooms were delightful and the bathroom was even more spectacular.
Having never spent much time in Western North Carolina, I never realized the amazingness of the mountains! We stopped by The Grove Park Inn, which was also incredible.
Our little stop in Asheville was a perfect respite before enduring doctor’s appointments. However, Mumsie was a total champ. Chase and my dad came down as well–it was a family affair.
In an effort to literally and figuratively sweeten our experience, I outlined a cupcake tour of North Carolina. We stopped by as many cupcakeries as possible on our trip–there was a tremendous amount of buttercream frosting consumed by yours truly.
Our first stop was Magpies in Knoxville, TN (on our road trip):
The frosting was quite delightful!
We also stopped by several cupcake shops in Asheville.
We had great hopes for the Cupcake Corner–they even had German Chocolate cupcakes:
However, the frosting was TERRIBLE. It was the biggest disappointment EVER.
I returned from my trip to Kentucky/North Carolina just a few days ago and feel a little bit of a frosting/sugar overload! I am actually trying a bit of a detox to help usher in a more strictly paleo period. My stomach has been going a bit nuts and I am ready to feel 100% again. It is funny because I know what makes me feel healthy–I just need to pursue it! With Chase’s graduation festivities this week, it will be a bit of a struggle to remain strict paleo, but I am going to try my hardest! I will post details tomorrow!
What have YOU all been up to?! I cannot wait to catch up with everyone!
