We were trying to decide where to go on our babymoon. My first thought was going to a tropical island, where you can soak up the warm sun. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the time to fly anywhere since hubs is still in school and my work schedule didn’t allow it.
We decided to head west… in North Carolina. We are moving out of state in 6 months and we wanted to scratch some places off our “before we move” bucket list.
Friday, we drove in to Charlotte. Hubs has never been to a NBA game so we planned to cheer on the Hornets. Luckily, they were playing the Cavs so we go to see Lebron play, too! We had a great time! Some of the Carolina Panthers players were there, too, like Cam Newton.
After the game, we walked to the Epicenter and checked out Howl at the Moon. I sat there listened to live music and drank my ginger-ale. We had a really fun time.
The next day, we drove to Grandfather mountain in Linville, NC. The views driving there were beautiful. The mountains are the sights I will miss the most when we move.
We stopped by the animal exhibit, where we saw a bald eagle, a cougar, and even a brown bear, oh my! We ate some fudge and kept on driving up the mountain.
We made it to the swinging suspension bridge and soaked in the views. This state really is something else! We stayed the night in a lodge at Banner Elk. We ate BBQ at the Pedalin’ Pig and checked out downtown Banner Elk. It was quiet and the stars were bright. I’m so glad we were able to explore this state. While living here, we have learned to appreciate the great outdoors. Thank you, North Carolina!
We hope our baby is as adventurous as we have been during our time together.
We hope that she will take risks.
We hope she will never take life for granted.
We hope she soaks up the present.
We hope she knows how loved she is not only by us, but by Jesus.
Jesus changed our life, and we hope she will follow Him like we have chosen to do.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declare the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
