8 Years? Where does the time go? Part 1

In the first few years of our marriage, we would usually plan a great vacation for October and incorporate it into our anniversary. The past few years that we have been living in the 'burbs, we have stayed pretty low key. This year we decided to do a little getaway that wouldn't be too far from home. This gives me a chance to share a couple of great hotels that we stayed at.
First we were off to Cape May, NJ. This is the entrance that greets you from the fabulous front porch of The Virginia Hotel in Cape May, NJ. They are always on the ball with making sure that the porch is decorated to the appropriate season. We have never stayed here in the fall, so we were delighted to find the cornstalks, pumpkins, gourds, etc. that welcomed us as soon as we pulled the car up to valet.
We have only been lucky enough to stay here twice now and have enjoyed in both times....

Our room this time was a large corner suite style. I am in love with the wallpaper and the pops of red and coral they use against the turquoise.
Unfortunately for me, it was football Sunday so the quietness of the room didn't last too long once my husband was settled in front of that flatscreen.
I have this same mirror hanging in my living room. Do you think they were frugal like me and found it at Home Goods? Probably not. I love hotels that use fresh white linens as their bedding. It adds such a crisp feeling to the room....
