We’re off to Philadelphia tomorrow for the wedding of a dear old friend. My parents and sister are attending, too, and my brother is flying in from London! It will certainly be a joyous occasion.
I may not have finished the recaps of my own wedding yet, but I fully compiled the stories and photos from our honeymoon into a Blurb book for Nick. I couldn’t be more pleased with it. And so, I give you the first installment of our week in paradise.
Our honeymoon began at Stone Crest in York. We left the soggy Sunken Garden at Lauxmont Farms and headed to a secluded bed and breakfast on top of a hill. A wide stone staircase led to a stately front door with luxurious furniture and ornate accents inside. (Thanks for the find, Mom and Dad Rowlands!)
Our room was located at the front of the house with two balconies and a bed that required a step stool to climb into. We also found a bottle of champagne and a box of chocolates on the Ottoman in front of the fireplace, compliments of Laura and Stephen.
The next morning we enjoyed breakfast in our bare feet because we had forgotten to pack a change of shoes. Our host did not mind at all. After visiting with our parents, we returned to Stone Crest for Italian takeout and champagne in the hot tub.
Next: We arrive in paradise.
