whose woods these are I think I know

Last week, Paul and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary at Speckled Hen Inn in Madison.  I had been working long hours the week of our actual anniversary, so we postponed our getaway for a week we both had more time off.  This was kind of a dual getaway -- we had wanted to have a night away together before the baby comes in June, and in case we didn't have another time to do it, this mini trip to Madison counted as our "babymoon."  And what a great little anniversary trip/babymoon it was. 

The snowy woods were so relaxing and beautiful.  Around our house a lot of the snow had already melted, but out here the snow still looked pristine and untouched.  It felt like the kind of snowy scenery you see in movies. 

This is a picture of the actual inn.  We didn't stay in the barn with the llama and the sheep in that first picture.  

A view of the little common space.  This was where we got our tea and chocolate chip cookies.  One of the best things about staying in a bed and breakfast: free cookies any time of day. 

Just before we were leaving, I took a walk around the bed and breakfast property.  The woods were just so inviting.  Plus I had to see the llama and sheep up close. 


I'm sure this property is beautiful in the summer too, but I'm so glad we got to visit during the middle of winter.  It was the perfect cozy location for a little getaway.  And the breakfast was amazing!!  Homemade maple syrup, scrambled eggs from their chickens, and delicious French toast.  I could go for a second round of that right now!

P.S. It was so exciting to make our baby announcement earlier this week!  I loved reading everyone's congratulatory remarks on Facebook.  Makes everything seem more real -- and June seem not so far away!!
