You know your interests have changed when someone asks what you want for your birthday, and you respond, “Chalk paint or a gift card to Home Depot.” You can imagine my excitement then when on my doorstep was a box with four cans of chalk paint from my wonderful sister, Ashly. Almost immediately I found a wonderfully hideous, but solidly-built dresser for $30 and went to work.
Savannah, Georgia has had a piece of my heart ever since I visited in 2011 to watch my cousin graduate from SCAD. It is unlike any city I’ve ever been to, and I can’t help but feel I am in a different world when I am there. There is something so hauntingly beautiful on just about every corner. Kyle and I spent the entire time exploring the streets adorned by beautiful, historic homes and old, moss-covered trees as well as the square parks that make up the city.
With a week off from work, Kyle and I headed south for a fun road trip with three planned stops. Our first stop was Asheville, North Carolina, a city I had heard amazing things about, but had yet to visit. To keep on track with our other hotel reservations, we spent exactly 24 hours in the area before heading out. While I wish we could have stayed longer, (there was so much more to see and do), it was a fun-filled day, and I know I will be visiting again soon.
