I didn’t say so in Tuesday’s post, but getting to spend this last week in Greenville has been a little surreal for Tim and me. We started talking about our upcoming anniversary back in September, tossing around ideas and discussing budgets, and I thought more than once that I didn’t know what to do. Stay in Nashville? Go up to Chicago? Keep checking cheap flights? Maybe Asheville or Knoxville or Birmingham? It’s not like we think we have to take a trip every anniversary, but we do enjoy getting to set aside a few days to be together each year, away from work, away from routine, as a tangible way to reflect and remember and connect. So when Greenville offered to host us and let us sample its food scene, it felt like more than a good opportunity—It felt like a good gift, straight from the One who sources every good thing. All week, as we met passionate food professionals and ate plate after plate of beautifully prepared meals, we kept thinking how thankful we were for what we received. Thanks to you guys, too, for following along with us on Instagram (@foodloves and @mitnollam) and Facebook and here. We wish we could have taken every one of you along with us, through the scenic eastern Tennessee landscape and down into the Asheville mountains. In this post, we hope to offer the next best thing.
This week, we learned there’s a lot more to see and do in Greenville, South Carolina than either of us had realized. But mostly, there are a lot of good things to eat. Here’s a look at where we stayed, what we ate and what we saw in Greenville.
