Eureka Springs

Hi all,

Last week was our spring break, and the way Adam’s days off fell, he had Wednesday through Sunday off as well. We haven’t been on a trip for fun since last August, so we decided to take advantage of the free time and spent Wednesday through Friday in Eureka Springs. Adam had gone once as a child, and I had never been at all, so it was fun to experience a new place. We stayed in an adorable bed and breakfast, and that was a lot of fun. That was the only part of the trip we had planned, which was very different for us. Normally we have tons of things to keep us busy. The point of this trip was relaxation, though, so we stayed in our room a lot, took a couple of leisurely walks around the town, and of course went out for dinner. I even got Adam to take a nap two afternoons in a row. He doesn’t do that unless he’s sick; he’s very much a busybody. I loved every bit of it, and I think even he enjoyed slowing down and having no agenda. I really enjoyed spending time with him without any distractions. It rained the whole time we were there, which contributed to it being such a blank schedule, but I think that worked out for us. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

This was our bedroom in the bed and breakfast. The decor was lovely.
Here is the view from the front room looking through the bedroom into the back 
bathroom. Each living area was divided by sliding doors to be separate. 
This was our breakfast one morning: biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs with mango salsa, 
fruit, and a blueberry cinnamon bread pudding. Yummo. 
This was the only decent picture I got of the two of us; waiting for a table at Local Flavor.
Rainy street outside the restaurant.
This was a natural spring, called Blue Spring. Very lovely.
I adore pretty buildings filled with books. Few things make me happier.
There is a glimpse into our wonderful trip! We had a great time. We were sad to leave, but we also missed our house! There really is no place like home. Especially when you own and love your home. I hope everyone is having a great week! Things are pretty busy for us the next couple of weeks, but I’ll try to be better about blogging–I’m falling way short on my two posts a week! Oh, and happy Spring. 🙂
