We are an unmarried couple taking a short vacation. We are traveling to my niece's house in Bryson City to spend Thanksgiving Day with her family. After that, we are considering driving to Asheville to catch some Black Friday shopping and we have reservations to tour Biltmore on Saturday. My boyfriend is a top-notch electrician who works for our military base, Fort Bragg. He is just gifted at fixing just about anything. I am a professional who moved back home to take care of my mother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I am house-bound most of the time but I play piano for a Methodist Church on Sundays. He is a Trustee at the church where I play. We were classmates from 1st through 12th grades and reconnected after 37 yrs. and started dating. We are very happy together and are treating ourselves to this little vacation together.
