Yep! The drive from Virginia to Asheville was extremely cold. It was a really long drive and the first time we encountered snow. Our feet got so cold on the drive we had to keep moving them in our shoes just to keep warm. Stuff you find out on the road I guess!

Then headed over to the center where some more cute shops were!
Something funny that happened, we were all looking in a spice shop and Ben and I were getting a little close (we
