amy’s weekend in asheville

 If you’ve never met a blog friend in real life, do it. You might regret it if she’s actually the cat lady or is a total fake blogger chick and is the opposite of who she makes herself out to be, but she’s probably not. This blogging world produces friendships that are real. Really real.

Amy’s weekend here was fast, but so fun. I played tour guide Barbie and showed her my life here in Asheville. The fun part was we experienced some of what Asheville has to offer that I’ve never done before.  That was so cool.

We ate a ton, hung out at the drum circle until the downpour stopped us, talked until 1am three nights in a row, junked, and hiked till our legs nearly fell off…all good things.
The most weird thing of all was how not weird it all was. When you meet someone for the first time isn’t there supposed to be a bit of awkwardness? Just a little bit? There wasn’t. Not one bit. It was like an annual visit that we’d never had before. Amy was just as sweet as I knew she would be. Adorable, laid back, a soul sister.

Our hike to the top of Looking Glass Rock was more memorable than we’d have liked in some respects. It was so hot I sweat through my shirt most disgustingly.  We nearly missed the summit and the best view ever because we thought we were going the wrong way and almost turned around. We laughed so hard the meditaters at the top almost threw us off the top 🙂 Oops.
Seriously so fun!

Amys’ flights got switched around and we ended up going to Charlotte’s airport to see her off. It was a great turn of events because she got to experience IKEA for the first time…what could be better!?

Ms. Ames, I love the heck of you. You’re welcome back anytime 🙂
