To keep things short and sweet, I'll share the highlights...
I ate eel
Yes, you read that right. Truth be told, it was kind of like squishy chicken, not bad!
I went antiquing with my Aunt
It was great spending the days with my Aunt. We did a little exploring, shopping, and even treated ourselves to pedicures! During the car rides we finally were able to catch up on everything that's been going on in our lives lately. She's like my mother, she gives sound advice on life :)
A Classic Traveling Picture...
C'mon, it wouldn't be a real trip if I didn't get a picture under the state sign!
I went to the coolest restaurants and cafe's!
My favorite places I went were Amelie's, the picture perfect bakery with the most delicious and unique food I've ever seen. The atmosphere is so creative and quirky, you can't help but look around you at all the artistic things! My other favorite place was Dean & Deluca's. It was so gorgeous and beautiful, everything was exquisite about their wine room, I loved it.
I reconnected with my Grandfather...
... and partied with my cousins in Charlotte!
Overall, my trip was amazing. It was surreal to see everyone. It was nothing like I imagined. The last day my Aunt cooked an amazing meal, one of her specialties. We all sat around together, watching the movie I made actually for this trip! But we had to take me back to the airport, so I packed up my suitcase, hugged everyone good bye, and we were off to the airport.
I think I fell in love though....
Can't wait for my next trip!
I'll make it back out to NC hopefully in August
Family? Get ready, because by then I'll be 21...
