anniversary trip

This last Sunday was our first wedding anniversary--we've been planning a trip for a while for a get a way weekend.  We rented a cabin in near Dubuque and it was awesome--there were three cabins--two were empty except for a group in one of them on Saturday night.  They were out in the middle of nowhere and beautiful!  Here's a view from our cabin: 

And the cabin itself--it had four bedrooms in the tower--we were not lacking on space!

On Saturday we went to a local winery for a wine tasting (neither of us had ever done that before but it was fun, and there was a really cute dog there)
Then on Sunday we went to Dubuque to walk along the Mississipi
Then we went to Galena, IL to look around the cute shops that are there and then went out to dinner--it was an awesome weekend!


  1. So fun, Amy! Glad you guys got a getaway :) Yay for trips!

  2. looks nice, quiet and relaxing! :) we are going to send the kids to grandma and grandpa's house over labor day and take a "staycation" here at home :) can't wait!
