I really can’t believe it’s been a year since our wedding. People say the first year goes fast but holy cow. Fast is an understatement. From the honeymoon, to moving out of our apartment and into our first home, to getting our crazy dog, Rue, and to all the mini-trips, this year has just flown. We are past the newlywed stage for good..no more “aww, so fresh” comments. Now it’s onto the “ohh, babies anytime soon?” comments. (Which happens all the time).
We decided it would be a great idea to get away for a few days to celebrate this milestone and to just spend some time alone together. Being in ministry, you don’t get a ton of that alone time, so we figured this was the perfect chance to take a break and refresh. What better place than a secluded cabin in Brown County, Indiana. Seriously, I was throwing a tantrum when we had to leave this morning..it was that great. God blessed us with perfect weather (a lovely 70 degrees and sunny) so we were able to get out and hike, shop, explore..all that fun stuff! I thought I’d share some of the photos from our trip, since that’s kinda what I do 🙂
downtown Nashville (Indiana, not Tennessee), a quick trip to the national park & our lovely cabin
I got up with the sun to get some sunrise shots..so worth it. We made breakfast and relaxed before heading off for a morning of hiking in the park. It was so perfect outside, didn’t even need a jacket. Then we finished the day off with a trip to the town for dinner. (Which, if you ever go to Brown County, be forewarned that it’s kind of an old people town. Everything was closed so we ended up having to eat at this old country restaurant that was closing in 20 minutes…we still had fun though.. haha)
Today..SO not ready to leave. After the little heat wave, it stormed all night and then snowed this morning. It was so pretty in the cabin, though. We packed up, headed back to town and finished our getaway with coffee and breakfast at this cute little coffee shop called the Daily Grind.
Really, this post is more for myself. Matt and I had so much fun this weekend, I’d do it again in a heartbeat. There is so much to say about our first year, I’ll have to do it in another post I guess. But at least I found some time to share the photos! 🙂
