#FBFAsh

 

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Asheville, North Carolina to attend my very first blog conference.
I had such an amazing time and took only about 465,301 pictures,
that it has taken me this long to narrow them down.
 
Once I arrived in Asheville, I headed over to the Doubletree Biltmore
for a Moonshine Meet and Greet.
Troy & Sons really delivered with sweet libations.
The air was filled with live blues grass music, sweet mountain whiskey,
and crispy bologna and tomato jam crostini.
All of which was literally to die for!
 
 
The next day started at The Biltmore Estate's Lioncrest.
The day was filled with conference type things..
Amazing guest speakers, tons of information, and of course food.
 
Later that evening we took a quick tour of the Biltmore House
and then had a lavish dinner over looking the grounds of the Estate.
 
The next morning began with a trip to the Highland Brewing Company,
where local restaurants had small bites for us to try.
They were nothing short of amazing!
 
After filling up on duck pate, mushroom ragout, and vegetarian empanadas,
it was time for a tour of the brewery.
 
After the tour, I couldn't resist trying some French Broad Chocolates,
and even got to take one of the Chef's Tablets home in our swag bags!
The girls who run FBC were so sweet and gave us a ton of ideas..
Let's just say Chocolate Stout Cake.

 
The Looking Glass Creamery had to be one of my favorite parts of the day.
Or maybe it was the incredible story I left with.
A goat literally ate my hair. Ripped it right out of my head & munched away.
Yes, a goat!


 
Hickory Nut Gap Farm was my last stop of the day.
It was so great to see such hard working people who care so much about what they are doing.
 
I also loved meeting the guys from Buchi Kombucha.
I have never been a fan of Kombucha but after one sip of the Buchi Seed,
I was hooked!
 
Seriously couldn't ask for a better conference to attend!
I learned so much, met so many amazing blogger and new friends,
and cannot wait to show you what I learned!
