|Green Man taproom in Asheville|
Last August, we were able to sneak away for an overnight in Asheville after dropping our kids at camp. I had not visited Asheville in almost ten years and a lot has changed! There were so many new restaurants and breweries to visit. Hotel prices in Asheville are pretty steep but we were able to find a good last minute deal at Aloft. If you have not visited Asheville in a while or ever, it is worth the trip.
It would not feel like fall without a Jason Isbell show in the books. Emily and I were holding out for him to announce another October show at the Ryman but it did not happen. Fortunately, we were able to see him in Mobile. We loaded up the Seville bus with several other couples and made the hour long drive on a Friday night in September. No photo documentation because we were in the moment (aka talking and sipping champagne) but scroll to the bottom of this post for a video from the show. Also, we always feel a little goofy taking pictures of each other in front of other people.
Now on to a few new favorites in the skin care department. Have you heard of Drunk Elephant? I'm in love with this line. I use the C-Firma Day Serum, B-Hydra Intensive Gel, TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum and the Virgin Marula Facial Oil. Click the links at the bottom of this post if you are in search of a new skin care routine. I am still seeking an eye cream that actually provides results. Just finished Clarins Extra Firming Eye Cream with no visible improvement. If you have one you love, do tell! On a positive note, I have found a great under-eye concealer in Kat Von D's lock-it concealer creme.
The #1 thing that I am most excited to share from 2016 will have to wait until next time. Until then, keep moving forward. I love this quote from Craig Sager's speech at the 2016 ESPY Awards...
"If I've learned anything through all of this, it's that each and every day is a canvas, waiting to be painted-an opportunity for love, for fun, for living, for learning."
