Saint Louis, you were good to us.

This was such a fantastic little adventure for us two!  We were able to find some great new places to eat, walk around in the 90 degree sun and manage not to melt, and even had a few opportunities to stay out later than our usual 9PM bedtime.  I'm sure many of you already saw my daily food snaps over on Instagram and if you ever happen to visit, I highly recommend Half and Half for a delicious brunch or Rooster for some quite strong morning cocktails. ;)  I have to say that was the first time I was ever buzzing at breakfast and it was... weird.

This city also happens to be the home of one of my other great friends that I haven't seen in a long, long time.  I was so thrilled when she gave me a ring late on Sunday night so we could catch up and make last minute plans for a coffee chat before we left on Monday morning.  It is so rejuvenating to make up for lost time with friends that just pick up where they left off with you.  Blair is witty, kind, and wise beyond her years- if I could, I would have snatched her up and packed her in my suitcase for Chicago!

It still hasn't hit me that the end of this month, May 28th specifically, that I will have been a married woman for a full year.  A lot of it seems like a blur.  A good and happy blur, though.  Time moves so quickly when you're enjoying yourself and working your tail off around the clock.  I savor all of these seconds and little moments we've had together, and am especially thankful we can take a long-weekend getaway every now and again as a married couple.

I am so grateful.



  1. It sounds like you had a fun trip. Happy first anniversary to you!

    I love the friendships that pick up exactly where they left off. They're good for the soul. They almost always help me reset.

  2. SO important that you guys are still having quality time and getaways together.
    Oh and you are preettyyyy! :p

  3. One of my favorite things to do with Chris is explore a new city that's not necessarily known as a vacation hot spot. Our trips mostly revolve around food, too :) Looks like you guys had some good adventures in STL.
