We are VERY fortunate!!! (One of) Matt's aunts & uncles owns a little cabin up in the mountains of Hot Springs, NC. So before the craziness of the holiday season began, we ventured up into no cell phone signal territory in order to relax.
One of my girlfriends from college (also post-college roomies & bridesmaids in each other's weddings), her husband, & dog joined us for a 3 day weekend. We hiked, played games, lounged, ate, and slept in the entire break.
Friday evening we ventured around the little town, had dinner at the Smoky Mountain Diner, walked to the river, and enjoyed the atmosphere of Bluff Mountain Outfitters
I got some pottery from this cute shop The Artisun Gallery
Saturday we hiked up to Lover's Leap along the French Broad River

Before enjoying our Crockpot spaghetti dinner
Right across the street from our cabin is the footpath that leads to the Appalachian Trail. On Sunday, we walked the AT for longer than we expected to (almost 5 hours) and we never quite made it to the hiker's shelter. LOL.
Happy (& tired) Hikers
