Our drive to Asheville, NC was just beautiful with the leaves at their peak. We went to celebrate the marriage of a dear college friend. The wedding was held in a Greek Orthodox Church, so we heard Greek, ate Greek, and danced Greek! It was wonderful.
It is beautiful to see an old tradition like that alive and well. Besides seeing my beautiful friend, the bride, and some other college friends, my favorite part was seeing the groom and his father do a traditional Greek dance together. Did you know that Greek weddings take place on Sundays, no vows are exchanged, and wedding rings are worn on the right hand?
Other highlights of our trip: seeing my kids dance; seeing the amazing Grove Park Inn, built in 1912; seeing downtown Asheville long enough to know that I want to return; being pleasantly surprised by the big, hot breakfast buffet that came with our overnight at Day Inn :).
