WEEKEND GETAWAY : CHIMNEY ROCK - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama


by - Wednesday, November 13, 2019

This past weekend, Dan & I went to one of our favorite places .. Chimney Rock!  Years ago when we were just dating we took many day trips there & then later we started staying at the Chimney Rock Inn.  It's so cute & we love it so much!  The inn itself only has six small rooms but there are also cabins you can rent behind it.  I'm sure the cabins are great but that tiny inn feels like such a Hallmark Christmas movie to me!
On our drive up on Friday, the sunset was gorgeous!
We got to the inn, checked in & then went & grabbed dinner at a place called Genny's.  It is the kind of food your maw-maw would cook ... you know, that good southern food!
After dinner, we headed back to our room & turned on Hallmark because Christmas movies, duh & we were both asleep before 10 pm.  And it was incredible.
This is the view from our deck & right above our heads is Chimney Rock.
We grabbed breakfast at the cutest little coffee shop by the creek & y'all, that breakfast burrito I had was amazing.
The view wasn't bad either.

After breakfast, we walked around to the shops before heading home.
It was a short trip but so good for the soul.

I shared this on my INSTAGRAM but wanted to share it here, too ...

Girls, go away with your hubby for the weekend .. Guys, take your wife away for the weekend!  You'll be so glad you did!  On our way up to the mountains, I asked him why in the world did we wait SO long (Cooper was probably 5 years old) to leave the babies with grandparents & go away just the two of us!?!  The answer is me.  I was the one who just couldn't leave my babies.  Guilty.  I'm guilty.  But y'all, I wish I would have said yes years ago!  I am so thankful that Dan has continued to ask me ... year after year ... even after many "I can't leave them" answers!

Even after just one night away together, we were back to our babies late Saturday night ready to crush this marriage & parenthood thing again.

Focus on your marriage, friends ... you both deserve it!
