[Wedding tattoo right over my heart...original can be seen here]
The week before our anniversary, D had been out of town. I had a stressful week home alone. On my way home Friday, he surprised me by telling me to pack up. We headed to a little mountain cabin in Boone, NC.

We brought the dogs with us (which is always the hard part about traveling...it's so expensive to board if we can't take them with us).

Friday we stopped at the grocery store and stocked up on breakfast food for Saturday morning. We relaxed and enjoyed the cable (which we don't have at home now) and hot tub!
[The cabin was a little studio with moose decor]

It rained all day Saturday, but that didn't stop us from checking out the city of Boone, drinking, and eating.
[Of course we had to stop in to a local bar for a beer or two]
[Fried green tomato BLT with goat cheese...yum]
We woke up on Sunday to check out and the creek was completely flooded! Luckily we didn't have a problem getting out. Unfortunately, the neighbors looked like their bridge was flooded!

We had a wonderful, relaxing anniversary weekend. It was the perfect refreshing escape from reality. A wonderful way to celebrate one year later.
