Last weekend was a weekend of adventure, mystery and fun. Yes, Dan took me on a surprise getaway for what was our first trip alone since I was pregnant with our son (nearly five years ago). He planned, he booked and I drove following the GPS to our surprise destination.
Dan had booked a night at a lovely bed & breakfast in a cute little town with fun shops, a state park and lots of places to explore. His destination requirements? A couple hours away, a certain budget and a place neither one of us had ever been.
You see, we love to explore somewhere new. Now I know that this may sound contradictory to the fact that I hope to vacation with our family every other year at Walt Disney World (oh and if you are planning a trip, see here for 10 tips for planning your trip). But, that is different. Really, it is!
For other trips, ok more normal trips, we love to explore the area, travel the unbeaten path and discover the gems of a town. So here are the adventures of a ‘rich-in-blessings and not-at-all-famous’ couple off on a weekend getaway.

It was our first Bed & Breakfast experience and we loved it. We met interesting new people and felt very at welcomed by the B&B owners. The house itself was built in the 1800’s, rich in history and 9000 sq ft! (And Dan thought I wanted a big house! This house was three floors of incredible rooms and high ceilings.)
We quickly settled in and then headed into town. We checked out a cool bridge, did a little shopping and even walked through a cemetery. I have always found cemeteries interesting. I love seeing what the different stones record . . . and sometimes discover something beautiful or even unusual.
Here is the beautiful:
