What Rhymes With Nashville?

On January 26th I left Nashville, TN for Asheville, NC.

I arrived before my host and went up the street to the local watering hole to quench my thirst and discovered pretty quickly that I love Asheville. There wasn’t any particular thing that made me fall in love. From the beginning it just felt right in every way. I had a great guide and host in my friend Paul who is creating some real magic in East Asheville in the form of a home/artist retreat and a store front/gallery. The man has Vision and is putting the finishing touches on both buildings. I can’t wait to go back and to spend more time with Paul and his family.
