It is possible that the local vibe is part of my love language. I spent Wednesday morning in downtown Asheville, and when I went home, I was filled with so much excitement for how many awesome things that are going on in this tiny city.
Such as locally made ice cream (with local ingredients)
and supporting the local economy
and celebrating what one can make oneself
and using green energy to heat the water used at a coffee shop.
And after being in Chicago all summer, it was great to be back in a "downtown" area (which feels more like a neighborhood in Chicago instead of the loop - which is great since that is my favorite part(s) about Chicago anyway). I love it all.
Dang, I cannot wait to go back.
