Not long ago I visited Tennessee Hills Distillery with a group of friends. I wouldn’t have thought that Jonesborough would be the home of a pretty amazing distillery, but it is. The surprisingly young owner’s sense of style and love for good liquor definitely carried through the vibe of the distillery and taste of his product. It was trendy and hip with a subtle nod to the heritage of the town.
Every woman dreams of the perfect setting for her wedding and I was certainly no different. After months of searching, a friend told me about a wedding she had attended at Storybrook Farm in Jonesborough.
She went on and on about how beautiful it was so I just had to check it out. Making the short trip to Jonesborough, which is such a charming and beautiful town, it took me all of two minutes to fall completely in love with the venue. And after meeting the owners, John and Diane Vogt, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that this was where I was getting married.
So, confession time… I am a certified chocoholic. Always have been and I don’t see that ever changing.
And as someone who has long eaten dessert before the entrée – lets face it, life is too short not to treat your taste buds to the sweet stuff first – being able to enjoy last year’s inaugural Chocolate Fest in Jonesborough was nothing short of a dream come true.
Think about it. Sweet treats everywhere you look, all through downtown Jonesborough. And, it also happens around Valentine’s Day, which also makes it a perfect outing for you and your significant other to enjoy together. OK, so Chocolate Fest is actually Feb. 11 this year but who says you can’t celebrate the holiday over the course of four wonderful, chocolate-filled days?
