Door County Fall Adventure

The time has finally come!  Mike's family gave us a gift certificate for a bed and breakfast in Door County, Wisconsin as a wedding gift.  We held onto it and decided to save it for a fall getaway, after all of the wedding fuss was over and we needed a break.  Boy, am I glad we waited!  The foliage is absolutely brilliant now, the colors brighter than imaginable.

The bed and breakfast we are staying at is absolutely perfect.  It's called the Blacksmith Inn on the Shore.  The photos online showed a sweet little B&B with distinctive and cozy rooms set on the shore of a little sound.  Little did we know that we would be stepping into a little slice of heaven when we arrived.  After getting "the tour" we were left to our own devices.  We flipped on the fireplace, turned down the covers, and dozed off for a mid-afternoon nap.  Waking up to a picture window view of the sunset over the water was an added bonus.

I'm so excited to be here and can't wait to just take it slow and soak it all in!

My packing for this trip involved lots of layers.  With weather in the 40s, I wanted to stay warm but not completely bundled!  I stuck to a palette of outdoorsy neutrals: plaid, denim, more denim, olive, etc.  I hate pre-packing specific outfits for the same reason that I never lay out my outfits the night before.  I never feel like wearing what I originally picked out.  I like having lots of options!

Well, we just returned from having a glass of wine out on the dock and are deciding on dinner options.  Enjoying every moment of this. 


  1. Love the outfit! The red lips are a nice addition! Hope you and Mike enjoy the trip!
