Anniversary Weekend Getaway

This weekend, Barrett and I had a nice little weekend getaway.  Someone I know from the hospital (a very nice, thoughtful someone) has a house in Brevard, NC.  They graciously loaned it to us for a weekend treat.  Bonus - Buddy got to come along too!  It was so nice to get away for a couple of days and just relax.  We were pretty much off the grid, with zero cell service, so we really got to enjoy each other's company.  Friday night we enjoyed dinner at this great little Italian place called Marco Trattoria.  It's set up in an old house and was very quaint and cozy.  We had an amazing dinner and then headed back up the mountain to the house.  It stormed like crazy on Friday night!  We slept like rocks though and were ready to take on the day on Saturday.  The morning started off kind of cloudy and dreary, but by mid-morning there were little peaks of sunshine coming through the clouds!  We took Buddy on a nice walk by the lake and then headed out to do a little hiking (very mild, easy hiking!) and see some of the famous waterfalls of Transylvania County!  After our outing, we spent the afternoon playing Gin and taking naps...well, Buddy and I took naps.  :-)  We then went out for another great dinner at Falls Landing.  We took dessert to go and cuddled up with Buddy by a fire.  We really had a lovely weekend.  It is so nice when we get to just enjoy each other's company with very little distraction.  We're looking forward to having another weekend getaway soon!  Here are a few pics from the weekend...
