As part of my Birthday present, Jason surprised me with a long weekend getaway to the Mountains! Being originally from Miami, Florida ... I haven't seen many mountains. Especially in the Fall. The leaves start changing, the air is so crisp. It was beautiful. Breathtaking, I must say. We stayed at Lake Lure. (You can see a video on my Instagram @fashionchalet)

Day 1 was a road trip to Asheville. And exploring the town of Lake Lure on foot. Along the way we bumped into "Sam the Original Carolina Hillbilly" who was more than happy to pose for a picture. I dressed for warmth and comfort.

Our Cabin stay was truly cozy. We watched movies. Were treated to spectacular views of the lake. And enjoyed a dinner for two of barbecue burgers with onions and mashed potatoes. Thank you, Jason! ;)

By the end of the trip, I had conquered my fear. Well, sort of. You see I'm terrified of heights. But I did it. We both did. We climbed 500 steps to Chimney Rock. We had a 75-mile view overlooking Lake Lure and Hickory Nut Gorge. It was quite the workout, but in the end, worth the work. Beautiful. And yes, I was shaking, just a little bit... ;)

It was a much needed (and wonderful!) vacation. I already can't wait for our next trip! Where to next?

Looks like a great place to relax. I love forests and wide spaces, they are so peaceful.

Beautiful pictures! I lived in Asheville for seven years before moving to Florida. I had almost forgotten how lovely the mountains are in the fall. In the winter, you can stand in the sun and watch it snow on the mountain.
