mark and i are each off on our own little mini vacations in the coming days, mostly thanks to the vacation plans of our respective parents. i'm driving a few hours north to meet my mom and dad at a relative's beach condo, and mark's traveling abroad (to colombia!) with his father. we haven't spent a night apart since his cuba trip last october, but i happen to think a little distance does the heart good. besides, we'll keep tabs on each other's fun times via instagram! :) (you can follow me @stylebook and mark @mkligman, too.)
and speaking of fun times, i think we're pretty solidly sold on traveling to north carolina and tennessee sometime in late september or early october to satisfy my mountainous daydreams. asheville and nashville! any must-dos you recommend? i'd love to hear your favorite shops and eats so we can get crackalakin' on our planning.
