When I met Mr. Mickey at a neighborhood Christmas party in 2006, I didn’t know I was about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. He asked me to have dinner with him about four months later, so I accepted, and we’ve been enjoying each other’s company since then. On Sunday, we had brunch at a lovely new place in Asheville.
The baroque pearl necklace here is the only new item. The matching pearl bracelet is here. (Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.) The watch is here. Other similar items are the earrings here, bracelet here, and ring here.
A similar bag is here, and similar Stuart Weitzman pumps are here. Thin liner no-show socks are here.
We visited a new restaurant in Asheville for Sunday Brunch. Have you tried Bargello in the Hotel Arras? We thoroughly enjoyed the delightful staff, the delicious food, and the lovely ambiance of the hotel. From the valet to the bartender, everyone was professional and helpful.
The French Toast was delicate and delicious! There were leftovers for Mr. Mickey to take home.
Jonathan, the host, and Christine, the manager, were delightful. We are looking forward to our next visit.
We also enjoyed a Bloody Mary in the lounge area called District 42. The bar is named after the original forty-two lots running along Biltmore and Broadway Avenues in downtown Asheville.
On Friday evening, we revisited the consistently excellent, Gourmet and Company, which was the location of our very first date. I wasn’t surprised that he showed up for our date wearing the same colors as me. It has happened many times over the years. We are both wearing cashmere sweaters and other classic basics that are several years old.
