Getaway weekend

Standard

For our anniversary, I gave Brandon a weekend getaway trip to Jefferson, TX, complete with a stay in a cottage-style bed and breakfast. We had a wonderful
time and it was so nice to spend some quality time together.
Here’s the inside of our cottage:

We drove down on Saturday and spent the afternoon walking downtown and visiting all the antique shops and cute little stores.

Then that night, we went on the historic walking ghost tour. They tell you the history of the town and all it’s main buildings, while throwing in a few ghost stories as well. So fun, and interesting!!

On Sunday, we had vouchers for breakfast at a nearby bakery,

and visiting the historic Oakwood cemetery. There were lots of Civil War veterans, law enforcement officers and other famous people from the 1800s buried there. And sooo many babies… Some couples lost four or five babies, all under the age of one, in their lifetime. I just can’t imagine dealing with that kind of loss, but I guess it was pretty common back then due to all the illnesses.

Either way, it’s a beautiful, quaint town and I can’t wait until we get to go back again.
