Where we stayed in Asheville

Dave found the cutest little spot for us to stay. It was within walking distance of downtown, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and duck donuts (what more could you want? 🙂 ) This was the house, but you walk around the house… Follow the sign for the garden apartment… And here’s our place! Dave booked it…

the open shelves pantry then and now + photo backdrop

  Here are my open shelves as they are now. When we moved in 12 years ago they were covered with annoying shutter style white doors that pinched children’s fingers and took up a lot of space. I was so happy to take the doors off and it’s fun to rearrange and decorate the shelves….
