Honeymoon, Check

I am excited to say we finally booked our honeymoon! As many of you know our honeymoon ideas have been constantly changing. Our last idea was New York City, my all time favorite place in the world! My heart was set on New York City. But life has changed and we had to change our plans accordingly.

Ultimately we decided with all the ongoings and planning of the wedding we wouldn't get to fully plan and enjoy a big trip. Additionally with the expenses of the wedding, buying a home, me still looking for a job, and the unstable economy paying for a huge honeymoon wasn't the smartest decision. We are hoping to enjoy the New York City trip as an anniversary get away a few years down the

So where are we going? Asheville, North Carolina. Asheville is only 6 hours away from Cincinnati making the travel there economical on one tank of gas. Asheville is supposed to be a cute town with an artsy vibe and good night life. During the day there are lots of outdoor activities such as hiking. The big attraction is the Biltmore Estate. The house looks gorgeous with beautiful gardens and the part we are most looking forward to is the winery.

We have booked a four day, three night trip at a local Bed and Breakfast. The B&B is within walking distance of downtown so that we can take advantage of the night life. During the day it is a short drive to the Biltmore or other outside activities. We are looking forward to sleeping in, waking up to a three course gourmet breakfast, the wine and cheese social hour everyday, and just spending time together relaxing. For us it's the perfect mix of relaxing day activities and a vibrant town with nightlife.

This is the Biltmore Estate. See the tour van/bus on the left hand side and how tiny it looks next to the house.

check out the Brews Cruise while you're in Asheville. We went to Ashville last summer and it was our favorite activity! It's like a 3 or 4 hour tour of the local breweries. Be sure you have transportation home--you drink a lot of beer!
