Four day weeks are THE BEST. Mo and I had a great time getting to relive our wedding weekend on our relaxing anniversary trip. Why aren’t 3 day weekends always a thing?!
Favorite Weekend Getaway: Copperstone Inn (Rockton, IL)
If you are looking for a romantic and relaxing weekend in the middle of nowhere, then Copperstone Inn is your place. This 1858 farmhouse has been made into a cozy and luxorious bed and breakfast with seven different themed rooms. Mo and I stayed in the Queen’s Retreat on our wedding night and we stayed in the Limestone Loft last weekend. There’s a hot tub outside (!!), a theater room and bar in the basement, and an outdoor grill and fireplace for when it’s warmer outside. They also serve a delicious homemade breakfast in the morning. Waking up to the smell of bacon isn’t a bad alarm clock!
Favorite DIY Craft: seashell ring dish
Not only is this project practical, but it’s easy too. Shells, paint and a foam brush is all you need to make good use of those shells you collected on the beach last summer.
Favorite Gym Hairstyle: French braid
From a girl who is always trying (and usually failing) to “tame the mane,” this is my go-to for the gym. It keeps all the layers pulled back so I can focus on my workout, not my hair. If it starts getting loose, I’ll just add a second ponytail holder at the base of my head.
Favorite Dinner Recipes: antipasto salad and sweet potato shepherds pie
Favorite Featured Wedding: gold sparkles and whimsical flowers
As you can see from the bride’s bouquet, this wedding is both playful and gorgeous- a combination that instantly draws me in!
