5 Years and Counting

Five years ago this past Saturday (May 12) Paul and I got married at The Red Lion Inn.  It was a beautiful day in all ways possible!
We went back to celebrate our anniversary this past weekend.  We had such a nice weekend together, remembering our wedding and the past 5 years.  We think we make a great pair -- among other things, we love being together and are great friends who crack each other up.  It took us a long time to find each other, but we are so grateful every day that we finally did!

The inn and Stockbridge are just so beautiful.  We spent some time strolling around the town and sitting on the porch.

On Saturday, we did one of our favorite things which was to spend the day in Brimfield at the antique fair.  We walked and walked and walked and walked.  Here I am resting my dogs while Paul goes to put some of our purchases in the truck:
 With my requisite purchase of kettle corn:
(...which I significantly downsized this year.  Usually it's the humongo bag.)

There is always so much to see there.  Paul found his first purchase in the first 20 seconds we were there.  A 7 foot tall metal cabinet for the garage to hold his garage stuff.  And throughout the rest of the 5 1/2 hours of walking around, we found quite a few other things too.

Metal stool, old metal cabinet and two windows

I had an idea brewing for what to do with the windows but we'll see how that turns out.  Stay tuned....

Look what we saw when we were leaving:
I have no idea how that ended up working out.  They were from Connecticut.

Sunday was more porch sitting and visiting our moms for Mother's Day!

Mandy has taken to trying to fit on the narrow fireplace rug since you-know-who is on her bed.
