We took my parents to the mountains for a memorable day of Christmas festivities and together time.
The town of Black Mountain is just about as cute as they come and the Veranda Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants that we've discovered since moving to North Carolina. The atmosphere is cute and cozy whereas the food is out of this world. Regardless of what day or time of year we go, it's one of those locals lunch spots that's always crowded and has a wait. Their soups and sandwiches are what Bryan dreams of!
We headed to downtown Asheville to walk around, pop into the stores, buy some fresh produce and grab a glass of wine at the historic Grove Arcade wine bar.
We concluded our day admiring the Christmas decor, the massive signature fireplaces and National Gingerbread House Competition displays at the Grove Park Inn. Lastly we enjoyed a festive dinner and 2 bottles of wine before we hopped in the car and headed home.
Love Love Love having my parents in North Carolina with us!
