chris and i are both feeling kinda bummed today. we had such a fun whirlwind trip visiting beca, doug, sammy and patrick, and seeing tennessee, a peek of georgia, and asheville, north carolina. we're happy to be back with flojo and kona, but knowing that the tumbleweeds are 7 hours away has us feeling lonesome; it can be bittersweet having such rad friends to hang out with.
i didn't take a ton of pictures at the southern blogger mixer mainly because i was too busy eating plate after plate of delicious hors d'oeuvres, but to see more of the event, the food, the people, and the project, you should peek at beca's blog. i am super, super shy until i can feel people out and see what they're like, so i was really nervous going to the mixer. it was a great group of girls though, and it was so nice doing blog talk with people that understood! i think the smaller group made for better discussion, and it made the event more intimate, like a lunch date with friends.
we decided to go home from tennessee via asheville, north carolina, which wasn't really on the way, but it's somewhere chris and i have wanted to visit. our friend patrick met us in downtown asheville and gave us a tour and local architecture history lesson before we ate a late lunch/early dinner at a delicious thai restaurant. i could actually go for another plate of phad pak right now...
964.8 miles later, i'm wishing we could be on our way back with flojo and kona in tow, of course, that way we could stay until we decided to come home. it must be tennessee wanderlust.
