Asheville, North Carolina

After Christmas in South Carolina, Jon and I took a trip up to Asheville! I love Asheville and the Biltmore was decorated for Christmas with over a 100 Christmas trees that I had to see. So armed with a new camera to keep him interested (somehow after 6 or 7 visits this castle of a residence loses it’s luster to some) we took a tour and then explored the grounds. Below are some of my favorites from our trip around the grounds since photography is prohibited inside- you’ll just have to go yourself to see, and make sure you take Jon and make him do the audio tour again because he hasn’t got it memorized all the way yet.

Because we can’t help ourselves, we found some waterfalls to hike to outside Asheville.

This trip was in particular very exciting, seeing as Jon proposed! It was perfect. Asheville will hold a very special place in my heart from now on. There might be some wedding posts coming up as things start to come together…
