I was in for a big surprise when my husband planned a surprise trip to Asheville for our anniversary.
Asheville caters to all sorts of people. If shopping is your thing, they’ve got it on all levels. If nature is your thing, you couldn’t find a more beautiful setting. Good food? You got it. If a luxurious spa is your thing, look no further. Some of the wealthiest people in America settled Asheville in the early 1900’s paving way for some of the most beautiful retreats in the nation, all of which are surrounded by lush green foliage, majestic mountains, and the serene sounds of nature. The following spas some of Asheville’s favorites.
The gentleman was facing my table. We glanced at each other occasionally sharing meaningful smiles with direct eye to eye contact, the kind of smile that beckons questions such as Who are you? Where do you come from and what made you come here on this day? I could see his bright baby blues from where I was sitting, cradled by what I call love wrinkles. Most people refer to them as crow’s feet. But his were clearly love wrinkles, lines gradually telling the story of a lifetime. Love, appreciation and gratitude were gently imprinted in this man’s face.
