Heather's Wedding

Heather has worked as our assistant at The Lion and the Rose Bed and Breakfast for over 7 years - longer than anyone else.  She is not only like family now but has become an important part of the day to day operation of the business.

This August she married her long time friend and lover, Austin, at The Farm just outside Asheville.  It was a small wedding, but filled with the people most important to the two of them and in a beautiful rural setting.

Firefly Magic

If you were lucky enough to grow up in an area of the country that had fireflies, you probably remember the excitement and magic they created every summer when they appeared at the end of dusk. 

Pizza Pura

Pizza Pura is a new restaurant in the River Arts District (or RAD for short).  The owner/operator husband and wife team of Ben Mixson and Laura Reuss also own White Duck Taco, which is very popular with locals and tourists and is also in the RAD.

We have visited Italy and have a family heritage from Naples, so we love pizza.  The pizza at Pizza Pura is the best we have had outside of Italy and our Aunt Josephine's.
