About a month ago I took a long-weekend respite in the mountains of North Carolina, and while I posted a couple of pics and a video to the Half Fast and Classy Facebook page, I just realized I still haven’t shared it to the blog. Egads!
I’ve been in high gear (well, higher than usual for me, which is probably still medium gear for most!) with the yard and haven’t found as much time to write as I would like. With that said, let’s make this mountain trip post mostly visual, shall we? Yay!
It’s good to give yourself a break and feed your soul every now and then. When I say feed your soul, that can mean something different for everyone. For me, connecting with nature does my heart and mind good. For others it might be spending time with friends or family, or volunteering, or skydiving. My point is, do what’s good for you. Treat yourself to the things that make you happy!
Grace and I buckled our seat belts and headed a few hours down the road to meet our friend, Karen, and from there the three of us drove to Blowing Rock. It was my first time there, and I can’t say enough about this quaint little mountain town, the people, the scenery, the food, the drink, the accommodations, the convenience. Get the picture? I’m a fan! Here are a few recommendations if you’re headed that way.
So there you have it – the highlights of a weekend trip to Blowing Rock, North Carolina. I highly recommend this little mountain get-away, but even more, I hope you find and do the things that bring you peace and happiness.
