This past weekend I was invited to celebrate a sweet friend’s milestone birthday at a beautiful airbnb in the mountains of Highlands, North Carolina. It is the perfect time of year for a trip to Highlands, as the brilliant colors of Fall create a tapestry of crimson, gold, and burnt orange around every corner, and the temperature is practically perfect. Not only that, the rental house was completely free, a birthday gift from her husband.
Sounds pretty perfect, right?
There was only one catch.
I would be spending the weekend with complete strangers…
