Happy Anniversary

Jason and I spent our Memorial Weekend by celebrating our one year wedding anniversary. We got married at Westglow Resort & Spa in Blowing Rock, NC, and decided to celebrate our first year of marriage by spending the weekend back there to relax and take advantage of all that Westglow has to offer. It was a weekend of pure bliss.
(If you want to read more about our wedding weekend check out this article that was featured in the High Country Wedding Guide.)

We arrived on Friday with just enough time to shower and grab a cocktail before our dinner reservations at Rowland's, the restaurant located inside of the mansion.

Our meal included a four course dinner so we started off with a few appetizers (not pictured) before our entrees arrived. Jason ordered the Fillet with Pine Nut Risotto and I got the Grouper topped with a beet puree with Blue Cheese Corn Cakes. Both were fantastic.

For dessert we split the Pound Cake and Smores (the coolest dessert I have ever seen).

Saturday we spent most of the day at the spa working out, reading and napping in the relaxation room and an hour long massage. My parents, grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousin were spending the weekend at my aunt and uncles mountain house so we met up with the family for another amazing dinner at the Best Cellar. Sunday and Monday we joined the rest of the family at the mountain house where we spent the rest of our weekend hiking and enjoying time with the family.

Last night when we arrived home Jason and I enjoyed a delicious reminder of our wedding day as we sliced into the top tier of our wedding cake that we had saved. It was as good as it looks, even after being in the freezer for a year.
