How do you celebrate important days in your life? My husband and I have a tradition where we celebrate important days with each other with experiences. Instead of flowers, gifts, or any material items, we like to plan something to do together. Over the years some of those things have included Red Sox games, comedy shows, concerts, beach getaways, New England trips up north....to name some of them!
For our wedding anniversary in September, we always plan a getaway. This year we decided to head to Asheville, NC for a long weekend. Ever since we moved down to North Carolina everyone has told us how much we would love it there. They were right! We fell in love with Asheville. We stayed in an awesome apartment downtown and we had so much fun exploring all that Asheville has to offer. Main highlights included restaurants, breweries, live local music, and taking in the sights. The mountain view from Cappella on 9 was a favorite spot for me. It's such a cool spot and the sunset was amazing. There is so much to do there that we couldn't fit it all in over 4 days, we will be back for sure! Do you have any favorite spots in Asheville? Let me know!
I love this tradition that my husband and I started. It's so great to take a break from everyday life and spend special time together. I look forward to many, many more birthday, anniversary, and holiday adventures!
