  • Hiking the Profile Trail on Grandfather Mountain to Calloway Peak

    { 10 comments }

    During our recent vacation to Grandfather Mountain we spent a day hiking the Profile Trail on the west side of Grandfather Mountain to Calloway Peak. It was one of my favorite hikes I've done in the North Carolina mountains. I get asked for hiking suggestions pretty frequently so I made sure to take tons of [...]

  • Our Vacation at Grandfather Mountain Golf & Country Club

    { 13 comments }

    I took an unintended break from blogging the back half of this week because getting my half marathon training plans finished and the group organized has been a time consuming (but fun!) endeavor. I also had a few other projects due and vacation was so wonderful that I wanted to soak it up while I [...]

  • Memorial Day Weekend 2016

    This long weekend really seemed to stretch out thanks to limited plans and lots of downtime. The weather here was pretty overcast and gray for most of the weekend and I kind of enjoyed having an excuse not to be at the pool/lake/beach. On Friday night I taught and took yoga. My fiance had to [...]

    Today was the best Saturday I have had in a long time. I taught my two regular morning hot yoga classes and then came home to make lunch and give the house a much needed clean. This spring is kinda crazy between travel plans, workshops and teacher training stuff so it was a welcome treat [...]

    Weekend photo time! Sullie and I celebrated Friday with relaxation in the front yard followed by my street's annual party. Hot dog (there is a special place in my heart for hot dogs...I will not tell you how many of these things I ate late night in college. Hot dog man, hot dog man, hot [...]

  • Hiking Graybeard Mountain

    I love being outside and have always enjoyed outdoorsy activities like hiking and camping. I think this can be attributed to all of my time as a girl scout, going to camp every summer and then working as a camp counselor for five years. I still get nostalgic for my camp days. It was a [...]

  • A Happy Place

    I'm home from Asheville where I spent the last three days eating, drinking, hiking, yogaing, wandering and eating some more. It was a beautiful weekend with temperatures in the 70s during the day and the 50s at night. Asheville is one of my favorite places to visit and when I'm there I always feel content [...]

    In an effort not to overwhelm you with tons of pictures from everything we crammed into two days in Asheville, I thought it would be smart to break it into two posts. Read part one here (heavy on food + beer). And here is the Saturday recap! I somehow managed to sleep until almost 10 [...]
