Year 1 Anniversary Getaway

Year 1 Anniversary was FUN to say the least. We decided to spoil ourselves a bit since we would be moving in and out of hotels/across the country for the next month. We both told each other no gifts, but secretly got them anyways. If you know Tyler- you know his love of golf. So here is his excited face with his new driver and putter! Woo hooo watch out PGA for this guy!
 ANDDDD if you know me....well I got another wedding band which I just love, love, love!
We were both so excited we couldn't wait til the day so we had an anniversary weekend and traveled to our new city of....ASHEVILLE, North Carolina! We stayed at the beautiful Grove Park Inn and was in awe the whole time. The weather wasn't great, but we didn't mind it! We had lots of good views, conversation, and FOOD! Asheville is where its at, y'all.

We had brunch at Early Girl Eatery which was recommended to us and did not disappoint! Check out those broccoli cheddar hush-puppies. Nom nom nom nom....

 We did some exploring downtown...

 Here was our room at the Grove. I loved the cottage feel of it all.
 And our VIEW. Can you get any better? Mountains, city, skies, trees: love love love.

Big ole fireplace


 We had dinner at their restaurant, Sunset Terrace. Between the steaks and the view, it was a perfect anniversary dinner!

 A little cheesy....but french macaroons make anything cute.

 Second day we did a litte more exploring our new towns. Not sure which there is more of in Asheville, people, hippies, or pets. When places say 'pet-friendly' I don't think it compares to Asheville. Literally dogs have chairs seated next to humans in restaurants. Gonna have to get used to that...

We ate at a delicious noodle shop called Doc Chey's Noodle House.
Chicken Pad Thai

 This ex-Japanese citizen (I use citizen because of his two year stint there, but I doubt he actually had citizenship) could live off noodles. Does he speak the language, cherish the culture, or wear a Kimono? No, but he does eat a weird amount of rice and noodles...
Coffee shop right in a bus!

French Broad Chocolate Lounge...Maple Bacon ice cream is what we got!
It was such a fun, sweet weekend getaway we got to have! Looking forward to Year 2 :).
