Anniversary Weekend

Last weekend my hubby and I went for a weekend away in Vermont to celebrate our anniversary. It was so good to get away, we really needed it. Dan had been extremely busy with work, helping flood victims in our area, fixing things at church, and helping others with projects at their houses. During that time I had been sick a lot and spent a lot of time home by myself. So I know it's a little selfish, but I just wanted to get away with my hubby for a few days, to a place where no one else could steal him. :)

This was a covered bridge outside of Manchester VT

The Whitney House Inn Arlington, Vermont. The amazing B&B where we stayed. 

This was our room. It was so cozy and extremely clean. Hubby wasn't too sure about the Raggedy Ann doll on the bed though. :)

Our innkeepers we the sweetest retired couple. They made fires for us in the living room each night, made us snacks, and had sparkling cider waiting for us when we returned from our anniversary dinner. They also bring you up a welcome tray at 7 each morning with juice, coffee or tea, and either muffins or bread just out of the oven. Then between 8 and 9 you head down to a gourmet breakfast cooked by the husband Kerry. We really got along with them so well, and we were sad to leave them. I should also mention that they were absolutely hilarious with their Long Island accents. :)

So yes we had a VERY good time! Just the hubs and me! :)


  1. happy anniversary! That looks like so much fun! and so cozy! :)

  2. Wow, that sounds like a really great place to visit!! I love that two breakfast thing! I do that sometimes- something light and quick and then a hour or two later "real" breakfast. :)

  3. I just found your blog through The Pleated Poppy. Imagine my surprise when I came upon the picture of the first covered bridge!! Taken in my town!! what are the odds!!
