Honeymoon: Change of Plans

It's been quite a while! I don't really know why I stopped posting, though we did get a little busier with the wedding plans. There are quite a few things to talk about, but I'll try to spread them out in different posts. We'll start of with the honeymoon. Again.

After writing a post on staying in a cabin in Gatlinburg, TN, a few things changed. Josh and I are lucky enough that his grandparents will be paying for our honeymoon, so after some debate, we thought about going to Disney. To us, it would be much more exciting, and who wouldn't want to wear the cute bride and groom mouse ear hats? I was definitely game. The other night, though, we started looking at some Bed & Breakfasts online in Asheville, NC. We found a few we like and finally decided what we wanted to do. So, we booked it last night.

Cumberland Falls B&B is beautiful! We'll be staying in the Lion's Den for only $165/night ($199 Friday-Sunday), and the room is just perfect.

Yes, that's a claw-foot tub.
After waking up around 11am in our private suite the Wednesday morning after the wedding (my parents are getting us a nice jacuzzi room at a local Howard Johnson), we'll check-out and head to Asheville, where we'll arrive around three, which is check-in time. We'll be able to enjoy ourselves at the B&B, take trips to downtown Asheville or the nearby Black Mountain, and (possibly) even take a day hike somewhere. We'll check-out that Saturday morning, but maybe we'll take the long way home so that we can enjoy ourselves and our time away just for that much longer.

I'm incredibly excited! Josh and I might actually be looking more forward to the honeymoon right now than the wedding, haha. Since the wedding is only 38 days away, though, we're getting even more nervous.

Next up: tuxes? or maybe flowers?

I would be really lucky to find a B&B as beautiful as this in Seattle. Love it!
