My first recap of our Asheville trip focused on the divine trifecta of biscuits, chocolate & champagne, but this recap follows our wanderings on Haywood Road, in West Asheville, where I could easily see myself living if for nothing more than to make OWL Bakery (Old World Levain Bakery) a regular morning stop.
I was beginning to think Christmas tree farms were a thing of Hallmark, Hallmark movies or quaint New England towns that feel like Hallmark come to life (or better yet, scenes from "Christmas Vacation"). But thanks to my friend Theresa, I discovered Christmas tree farms do in fact exist, and more importantly, one does in fact exist nearby(ish)!
When it comes to traveling, we make a point of seeking dog-friendly places (otherwise, we'd spend all of our time Facetime-ing our little girl anyway). The searches for Julep-friendly places lead us to the most relaxing and natural corners of the world like our recent stay at this Cozy Creekside Farmhouse near Asheville, NC.
