Grove Park Inn

Much needed

Much appreciated

Much in awe of

Much relaxation

Much reconnecting

Much wanting to go back

Brian and I snuck away for two nights to The Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC while Grandma and Grandpa stayed with the girls. We haven’t been on a vacation or mini-getaway just the two of us in I can remember how long. Leaving the girls in great hands, we headed to Blowing Rock first for lunch, a quick stop at one of our favorite antique shops and one of our favorite ice cream shops Kilwins. Second to Ben and Bill’s in Bar Harbor, ME. Wait, I think I just remembered the last time we got away together, Maine!

We had a great time, eating, relaxing, sitting by the enormous fireplaces, checking out the winning gingerbread houses from the National Gingerbread Contest, and spending the most amazing time in the Spa. See for yourself. Not sure there is a more relaxing place. Unfortunately, you can’t take pictures in the spa.

My pictures wont do Grove Park justice. I was rainy and the famous red roof was under construction. You will just have to visit for yourself. We will again!IMG_4395
