Beer Lovers Unite!

This past Saturday marked the 2nd annual Winter Warmer Beer Festival. Mark and Trish Lyons, owners of the Brews Cruise, organized the event in 2009 and it has quickly become an Asheville favorite. I was so glad they asked me to photograph the event again, I have such a great time! All the local Asheville Breweries were there, French Broad, ABC, Wedge, etc., as well as many more. Woody Wood and Brushfire Stankgrass were also asked to return and provide the entertainment. And the Lobster Trap catered, serving mussels, New England clam chowder, and other seafood delights. Don't miss it next year!

Feliz Ano Nuevo de Puerto Rico!

I couldn't think of a better way to ring in the New Year than hot, sunny Puerto Rico. My sweetie and I escaped the cold and relaxed in 85* weather. We explored Old San Juan, toured the Bacardi Rum Factory, enjoyed mojitos from the swimming pool bar, and got the FULL experience of the beautiful El Yunque Rainforest (I'm talking down pour). I was a little upset about El Yunque just because I couldn't bring my camera out in the rain, and so there are no photos. But we also met some amazing people and hung out with the locals. And we tried using as much spanish as we could. It was an incredible vacation...

Winter Wonderland

The day before we left to celebrate the holidays the snow started falling. And it didn't stop. Well eventually it did, but it sure was a lot of snow...
