our trip to the mountains

i've been swamped at work. so swamped that i had to work on Easter. it was a real bummer. i was so bummed, i refused to decorate eggs. i was sort of throwing a fit. not my finest moment. in order to cheer me up {& also because he's the greatest man... eva} M booked us a trip in the north georgia mountains where i got to do whatever i wanted. at first i thought it was an april fools joke but he showed me where we'd be staying & had our bags packed as proof. let me apologize in advance for the photo overload.
     
we hiked most of the first day & ate lunch by the neatest waterfall. 
water was freezing, yet we still got in.

another {smaller} waterfall we passed.
after a long morning & afternoon hike, i wanted to visit the nearby german & holland inspired town where we shopped around & ate authentic german meals.
the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. they have to be my favorite flowering tree.
the next morning we wanted to hike another trail. this one was less occupied but didn't have any waterfalls. 
there's a whole folder of pictures but i thought these would suffice. i instagrammed mostly food. & let me tell you, pounds of delicious food was consumed, including a pound and a half of fudge.  
the trip was just what i needed. though i didn't relax much, the time together was relaxing in a peaceful manner. oh mini vacation, you were such a treat. thanks for reminding me to indulge every once in a while. & thanks M for planning it all. you know how to spoil me.
