My Hometown: Asheville NC

Hometown: Asheville NC

I am linking-up with Andrea for another Show & Tell Tuesday to share about my hometown.




I am so excited for this post... My hometown makes my heart so happy. You may have heard of Asheville, NC on the news as one of the top places to live, and it now made the list of places to travel alone:

Asheville is rapidly growing and it's also now known as Beer City USA, but it's always been home to me. 


Above you saw a picture from the Blue Ridge Parkway nearby and here are a few from my front &  back yard.





Asheville is also home to the beautiful Biltmore Estate, America's largest privately owned home. It's truly the most beautiful at Christmas but Spring comes in close second.

The view from the back porch. George Vanderbilt owned all the way to the second ridge line, which is actually pretty close to my house!


I had such a hard time with the lighting on this one, but I wanted you to see the size of it!





Downtown is changing rapidly, we love the new local food scene. I haven't remembered to take any pictures of our trips there though!

I couldn't mention my hometown without mentioning my high school. In our neck of the woods, high school sports are taken very seriously, and are a huge part of "home" to Zack and I.

In high school, we both played multiple sports and spent a lot of our time there.  We actually met at the football stadium where he now coaches. It also helps that it's one of the most beautiful stadiums I have ever been too.


I get butterflies every time I pull in here for another game. It's a part of what makes Asheville home. Also, you see the mountains back there? They are the perfect color in October :) 


Thanks for reading about my hometown. When I was younger, I couldn't wait to get out of Asheville. Now, I don't want to leave; the mountains are home!

Can't wait to read about your hometowns!
