Just back to Lis’ house after dinner out in downtown Asheville and some browsing at Malaprop’s. As we walked back to the car, I couldn’t help but snap this photo. This is the line to simply set foot into the French Broad Chocolate Lounge.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been there and love it….but….egads? Right?! I love love love love Asheville. I am so grateful to have gone to college here and completed two years of AmeriCorps service here. I had a blast, learned a ton, and loved it all. I am so grateful that I get to come back so often for some of the best yoga training in the country. And every time I come back a little part of me wonders, “if only Andrew and I could move here…”
But this time? Seeing this line? I felt, for the first time, the exact feeling I had pretty much the entire time we lived in Austin: THIS IS TOO MUCH. I love you Asheville, but for the first time I’m truly happy to say that I’m glad to only be visiting.
Excited to finish up the workshop tomorrow (it’s been amazing) and visit with friends. Heading back to good old Corydon Monday and I couldn’t be happier.
