Micah and I just got back from a fabulous long weekend in Asheville, North Carolina. We ate, drank, and walked our way through downtown, West Asheville, and the River Arts District. We toured Highland Brewery. We had sexy tapas at Cúrate, amazing coffee at Posana, great cocktails at Sazerac, and fun tacos at White Duck. We had barbeque for breakfast at 12 Bones, and breakfast for breakfast at The Green Sage, Sunny Point Cafe, and Early Girl Eatery. (Every restaurant and bar we visited exceeded the high expectations we had for them. I would highly recommend any of the places I just listed.) We turned off our alarm clocks and abandoned our laptops. The weather was cool and overcast the whole time, the leaves were just starting to turn, and our airbnb apartment had a private porch next to a modern chicken coop that we pretended was ours.

It was an amazing vacation: delicious, restorative, motivating. Now I just need to schedule another one.
