We'd both been feeling overworked, so Jeremy and I decided to use his birthday as an excuse to have a three day get away. We enjoyed perusing shops and art galleries in downtown Asheville and visiting the Basilica of St Lawrence. Also, touring the Biltmore mansion, the many gardens there, and the winery. We enjoyed good food and quiet conversation and just had a very pleasant time together.
We left the boys with my mother in law, who really made our trip possible. Many of my neighbors insisted I give her their numbers as they were skeptical that anyone could fill our shoes even for a few short days, but they don't know my mother in law. She managed wonderfully and the boys really enjoyed her visit. Thanks, Mom!
