“Nothing goes faster than a vacation…” – Ken Simpson
I woke up Saturday morning and felt immediately sad. I couldn’t believe how fast our trip went by…
We went upstairs and had breakfast in the dining room and got to chat with a few other guests at the B&B.
After we packed our bags, we checked out and decided to recreate a picture from our honeymoon…
5 years later in the same exact spot. Who are those babies in the first picture?!
We had pretty much a whole day to do whatever we wanted, so we headed to Wormsloe Historic Site.
The arched live oaks are absolutely STUNNING and the way they line the driveway makes my southern belle heart flutter.
We got to have a mini-photo shoot (shout out to our tripod) and I was so happy with the pictures!
We changed clothes at the Visitor’s Center and decided to walk around the plantation grounds. We even checked out the Colonial Life area. NERD ALERT.
We stopped for lunch at the cutest little bakery/deli called Great Harvest Bread Co.
This roast beef sandwich was so good!
We drove around for a while, but got bored really quickly. We had dinner reservations at 6:45, so we didn’t want to get sweaty again.
What is the most logical thing for a Millennial couple to do? Go to a coffee shop, duh.
The Foundery Coffee Pub was such a cute little place, and the coffee was great (iced latte with hazelnut and coconut syrup).
Definitely would recommend.
It was finally time for dinner! We changed clothes at the coffee shop, and headed to the restaurant.
We ate at Alligator Soul for dinner on our One Year Anniversary, so we decided to revisit for Year Five. It wast just a delicious as I remembered.
I stuck to the basics and got a ribeye, but B was a wild man and ordered the kangaroo… Yep, you read that right.
I tried to take pictures, but the restaurant has dim (romantic) lighting, so photos were not really ideal.
The kangaroo was shockingly delicious –very similar to steak– but my parents were horrified that B actually ordered it!
YOLO, am I right?
For dessert we split the Bananas Foster Beignets and they were nothing short of amazing.
After dinner, we headed home, and it was definitely bittersweet. I’m a homebody at heart, but these little getaways are always so special.
5 years of marriage down, 1 million more adventures to go!
