365 days later...

Flashback to August 4, 2008:

365 days later.....We have been married for a full year! To celebrate, we stayed at the Carriage House Bed & Breakfast in Hermann, Missouri. I've never stayed at a bed & breakfast before, but this one was great and I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Hermann. Here is the website if you want to check it out:

Hermann, Missouri is a really neat town, full of history and wineries. Unfortunately, the heat index was 106, so we only toured two wineries before we got too hot. But, they were really pretty and we had some delicious wine!

Here is Luke at the Hermannhof Winery where we enjoyed a basket lunch with our "vignoles" wine.

We took the "self-guided" tour of the Hermannhof Winery which included the underground cellars where the wine is stored. It was kind of like a dungeon.

This is at the Oak Glen Winery which boasts that it is the most scenic winery in Hermann. There was a neat view of the grape vines and the Missouri River. We would recommend the "River Walk" wine from here. It was blackberries and cinnamon and we loved it!

Back at the Bed & Breakfast Luke found a top hat which was for decoration and decided he wanted to wear it. Isn't the room cool? It was decorated in a cozy country style.

Only 49 years until our 50th Anniversary!

Love the picture of Luke in a top hat! I love Hermann. I wish Chad could have gone there with me before we moved. Maybe some day.
