Experiences That Made Me Happy

Some Things I Really Loved This Week (#11)
Seasonal Cast Iron Dip at Haywood Common: Swiss, Apple & Spinach served with a grilled baguette

Lunch and InstaMeet #7 planning at Haywood Common with Holly on Tuesday. After I posted photos of our sixth InstaMeet last month, Haywood Common reached out and offered to host our seventh one! Holly and I are ecstatic! We love Haywood Common and this is the first time since we started hosting these meet-ups in February that a local business has reached out to US to host. We usually hold them at our fav coffee shop, Odd’s Cafe, and that has been awesome but it’s good to change it up now and then and a great sign of how much our meet-ups have grown. I can’t wait!

Some Things I Really Loved This Week (#11) Being snowed in over the weekend. I don’t know how you feel about it but I LOVE snow. Asheville got hit with its first real snowstorm of the season this past weekend and it dumped about a foot of snow in our neighborhood.  I heard that other parts of Asheville didn’t get quite as much so I feel lucky. We celebrated Sunday with huge stacks of pancakes and lots of hot coffee. There’s something so relaxing about being snowed in and knowing that you don’t have to go anywhere or see anyone. I’m so grateful that we never lost power and for our warm, cozy home.
