I took a quick jaunt with some girlfriends to Asheville for a spa getaway and it was so fun. I had never been to this area of North Carolina and I'm already scheming to go back.
We ate at Salsa (delicious, and I had two margaritas. At LUNCH. Unheard of), Farmburger, French Broad Chocolates, and the Sunset Terrace at the Omni Grove Park Inn. The Grove Park Inn was our main reason for making the trip, the spa there is so divine.
The whole 24 hours away was just what I needed as we wrap up our time here at the lake.
My latest episode of Sorta Awesome is up today! Megan and I cover everything from friendship breakups to my deep and abiding love of a certain horror author. (Hint: he's the only person who makes a repeat appearance on the my list of Best Books Ever.)
We also talk about the dirty hippie thing I love so much. (Hint: they're here.)
For your weekend reading pleasure:
- Elena Ferrante explains why she publishes anonymously: "Books, once they are written, have no need of their authors." (Make sure and click through and read the whole letter, but I'm linking to this site because it provides context.)
- The must-read of the week: Mindy Kaling's guide to killer confidence.
Happy weekend to you!
