Our First Vineyard Experience 

Once upon a weekend in June, we embarked on a romantic trip to Asheville, NC.  We chose to stop at Addison Farms Vineard for a wine tasting. It was the first time either my husband and I had been to a vineyard. What a beautiful scenery!  The wine is awesome!  We enjoyed every bit of the wine tasting. Addison Farms Vineyard is such a beautiful place. If you are ever in Asheville please take the time to visit Addison Farms Vineyard.  Our favorite was the Crown & Plow!

A Little Donut Find!

I live for little finds like these.  My hubby and I came upon a quaint donut shop in Pineville, NC called MJ Donuts. The donuts are awesome!  The donut shop took me back to my childhood in New Orleans. When/If you are in the Charlotte area, come to downtown Pineville and sample MJ’s Donuts. Happy Donut Tasting!! XOXO
