Spring Break Get-Away

I mentioned that I would be traveling with my hubby (no kids) to a cottage overlooking the Mississippi for a get-away spring break weekend/15th anniversary and here are a few pictures from the website to give you an idea of what the inside of our cottage looked like.
 This was the absolutely THE best thing that I needed for a break from school, work, kids etc.  I completely enjoyed myself and my husband.

 After we got to our cottage, our first look out of the windows showed this amazing view.
 And this one too, that is the Mississippi River and our cottage is nestled HIGH up on the bluffs.  Some called our cottage a birds nest for being so high up.

 The owners of the cottage included in our price a welcome breakfast of sausage, eggs, and homemade bread.  YUM, we had quite the appetite.
 I know this angle is kind of sideways, but it shows the parking lot below our cottage and the rest of the way up we had to go by foot. 
 My hubby caught a few eagles through his binoculars so I tried to get him and the eagles in my shot, but cell phone cameras are only so good.
 We stopped to go shopping at a few shops that were open for the season and I scored this lovely skirt and shoes *bonus*!

Here we are on our last day waving goodbye to the cottage that helped us to relax and connect better during our vacation.

This is the view as we were driving out of town.  Looks too good to leave.
