Anyway. Anyway! On Saturday we celebrated fall by going to our wedding site, High Hampton Inn, to see the leaves and get out of town and have lunch and be basic white people. You know, as you do in the fall.
My mom thought it was really funny that we had to set aside a day to schedule anything fun, but it sort of works that way for us at the moment because we travel and work weekends and see family and try to keep the house cleanish and it just gets to be a lot. So we scheduled fall! It was Jay’s idea to go to High Hampton, and it was GREAT.
We had lunch at Cornucopia, right down the street, and we shared a veggie burger, which was ironic because the last time we ate there, the day after our wedding, we shared a beef burger. The good old days, everything worsens after you get married, all that. I’m only slightly bitter that Jay went all veg-rogue on me without warning.
Then the venue! We got married in the summer, and only visited one other time before the wedding, in the winter when the property was closed and everything was pretty barren. BUT FALL. Wow. Even more gorgeous than in the summer, if that’s possible. We walked around and remembered dumb things about our wedding and it was just the loveliest. We’ve talked about going up there to stay the night or play golf or something, but I like of like it like this: to us, High Hampton is ONLY our wedding place. We have no other memories there other than that weekend, so the instant we stepped on the property all of that just came flooding back. I love that the property only holds one significance for us, and I think we’ll go back just for that purpose every once in awhile – eat, hold hands, and remember our wedding.
Also it’s kind of too expensive to afford to stay there, but that’s another story.
