4th Wedding Anniversary At The Duke Mansion

Good morning my dears.

On Monday, July 31st we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. We started our journey together almost seven years ago, ten days after I graduated college, at a Labor Day picnic.


We started the tradition a year or so ago, to have an overnight stay at The Duke Mansion for our wedding anniversary.



We received the keys for room 215 (a porch suite) and hoped to see a soaker tub. We had one in our suite last year, so it was something I was looking forward to. Sadly, we only had a shower. So I'll be sure to remember next year, as there's nothing better than a bubble bath and bath robe before getting ready for a dinner date.

The next morning my hubby took the camera outside and snapped a few pictures of the early morning sunrise.






Afterwards, we had breakfast served buffet style in the solarium. The tables were adorned with peach damask tablecloths, crisp white napkins, polished silverware, glassware, and dainty china teacups.




The solarium is one of my favorite rooms. I  the haint blue ceiling.




My hubby got me a fragrant floral arrangement and one of my traditions is to dry out a rose each year.





One of my all-time favorite gifts can't be bought, but it can be captured.

The more I delve into family history, the more I realize the importance in taking photos to record memories to look back at one day.

So here's what we look like at thirty-five (hubby) and thirty-one (me). Ha ha!


The rose gardens were in full bloom. Perfect for a morning stroll.





My forever date.


And me, being kooky showing off my new specs.



That morning, before we checked out, we spent some time porch sitting and talking. And the weather? It was just perfect, with a nice breeze.


Cheers to four, and many more!
