Highgrove Estate Wedding

This weekend we traveled home to North Carolina to celebrate the marriage of one of Eddie's oldest friends. We had such a great time and truly enjoyed the chance to catch up with people we haven't seen in far too long (and introduce them to our little Charlie bear too!)

The wedding ceremony and reception were both held at the Highgrove Estate in Fuquay Varina. It was my first time attending an event there and OH MY GRACIOUS. It is simply STUNNING. I learned the home was recently re-decorated and I was blown away by the ornate details and gorgeous furniture! Every detail was gorgeous and I must have whispered to Eddie at least a thousand times, "please let's just move in here! Maybe they won't notice!"

Naturally, I had to take a few snaps of the interior of the home and Eddie pretended not to know me as I walked around fluffing pillows/discarding trash and snapping pictures of furniture! ;)

Here are a few snippets from the Highgrove Estate and our weekend celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs. Wester:

 This wall of antique mirrors stopped me in my tracks!

Spring DC Trip (Charle's first road trip!)

At the beginning of spring, Charlie and I tagged along on Eddie's work trip to Washington DC! When Eddie and I first met, our first trip together was with my family to DC, so it was only fitting that Charlie's first road trip was to the very same place. We loved exploring the city and introducing Charlie to the wonder of our nation's capital (he was very inspired of course ;) Being his first hotel stay, he did great and loved being outdoors while we were seeing all the sights.

When we found out the dates of our DC stay, I was thrilled that our trip would coincide with the fluffy pink cherry blossoms blooming around the city! However, when we arrived, we were greeted by unusually cold weather and quickly discovered that the cherry blossoms had peaked early this year! We quickly improvised by grabbing a couple of coats off of the clearance rack and bundled up to explore all around the monuments and take in the sights of the city :) One day I would love to see all of the cherry blossoms in full bloom though!

 Below are a few highlights from our trip documented on my iPhone:
