a boutique hotel.

last night Max came home and told me that i needed to pack a little bag because tomorrow we would be staying at the charming Historic Craddock Terry Hotel downtown.


i couldn't believe he bought us a suite for valentines day. The thing is, I would have been fine with just a movie, or the sweet card and roses he gave me. But this is our first Valentines as engaged people so Max wanted to do something special for us.

a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about ideas, he suggested a weekend in D.C.

we loved the capital last time we were there but i still wanted a smallish celebration, so i suggested a local bed & breakfast.

and although Craddock Terry is not my quaint vision of a b&b, i was terribly excited when Max told me my surprise last night.

i have the best valentine!




and if i forget to tell you later, Max i had a wonderful time with you- my forever valentine. xo

ps. i can't wait to see how your valentine weekends went! i promise to visit when we get back. off to pack... SO.EXCITED.
