North Carolina has become a sanctuary for our spirits whenever we need to get away for a bit. The mountains provide both comfort, and a sort of loneliness, that allows one to gather their own thoughts. Sometimes this is the only real way to jump back into your responsibilities, relationships, even ambitions, with a fresh perspective.
Having family in Western North Carolina allows me to just the right excuse to tune out and take off for a weekend. This past memorial day, I did just that, with Bloom babe Faith. Those three days went by like a quick three minutes, but we made sure to spend our time outdoors, on hikes, picking berries, listening to bluegrass, and basking in the beauty that surrounded us.
