N O R T H C A R O L I N A
From Savannah, GA, we made our way to our final destination, Wolf Laurel Ski Resort in North Carolina. My grandparents have a cabin here, and aside from a family reunion it was also my grandfather's 75th birthday!
When I say cabin, I really mean the wooden house up on a mountain with no cell reception kind of cabin. While this would make any millennial an anxious mess, it was so great to spend time with family with out any distractions. We had so much fun white water rafting, exploring, and enjoying nature. So much in fact, that I forgot to take pictures of most of it! I snapped a few though, so no worries. ;)
What? Doesn't everyone dress this way in nature??
On one of our days in NC, we got to venture out and meet an old friend in Asheville. Who would think such a hipster town could be found in the sprawling green mountains of North Carolina?? Not me. Downtown was ultra cute, with so many interesting restaurants choices and fun decor. I definitely recommend!

Cool bus turned coffee shop
It all flew by so fast (as most vacations do) and before we knew it, it was time to head home. Our return flight was out of Charlotte, so we left a little early to enjoy lunch in downtown before our flight.
How adorable is this coffee shop?! It is called Amelie's French Bakery and Cafe, and I totally fell in love! The decor was exquisite, and the chai latte was the BEST I'VE EVER HAD. Definitely check it out!
Enjoying aforementioned chai latte :)
It's been so fun reliving our vacation and sharing it with all of you! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have haha. Stay tuned for more fancy finds and #ootd posts coming soon!
