This past weekend, my side of the family all congregated in Asheville, North Carolina for a weekend reunion. Most family drove from South Carolina, one brother + his girlfriend flew in from Denver and of course, we drove from Atlanta. It was actually a belated ‘Christmas’ get together, because the timing just worked better for everyone. We also had a mini celebration for my Mom’s Birthday (which is actually today), so that was special to have everyone together to celebrate her!
The weekend turned out to be eventful – the Denver crew had delayed flights, a surprise snow storm that made getting around surprisingly difficult, and a couple of other hiccups. Ultimately, we are so happy that we all had the chance to be together because that does not happen every year. So, we chalk it up as a ‘win’ and literally + figuratively braved the storm. It was certainly a memorable trip!
For my Winter Wonderland attire, I stayed warm thanks to my new Patagonia jacket. I typically stick to neutrals with outerwear, but this ‘Drumfire Red’ color was just muted enough to make it feel like I could wear it with anything! There’s also something about Patagonia that is so flattering, that I always think people look put together when they are wearing that brand. I will love this jacket for years to come – especially because it was a Christmas gift from Jonathan!
I would not have stayed dry without my Hunter Boots – there’s a reason why these things have become a classic. They are just so good. Speaking of classics, I don’t leave the house without my all black Ray Bans.
Stay warm out there! Atlanta is supposed to get back into the 70’s by Friday, so I will be shedding these layers by the weekend!
