Times they are a changing...

Just over a week ago Brent and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. We had decided last year that we wanted to start a tradition of getting away for the special occasion, and this year we decided to go back to the place where we said "I do"- Niagara-on-the-Lake!

We enjoyed a beautifully sunny morning leisurely walking in and out of shops and enjoying delicious coffee and lemonade. Around noon we decided it was time to visit wedding/engagement destination #1 (I should also mention we got engaged in NOTL in 2008, so this picturesque town is doubly significant to us). The night we got engaged we went to the Prince of Wales Hotel for a drink in their uber cool lounge, and the August sun and humidity had us ready for a cold bevy!

We finished our drinks and headed over to the Queen's Landing Hotel for lunch. We had a great server who was absolutely charmed by the fact that we had gotten married there exactly two years ago that day. He took extra time to chat with us about the great moments from our wedding day at the property, and returned at the end of our meal with a very special surprise for us:

Thank you Queen's Landing for making our anniversary lunch so special!

After lunch we drove over to the rose garden at the Pillar and Post (ceremony location), but unfortunately didn't take any photos, so I'll use a pic from the garden two years ago:

Later on we checked in to the B&B and got ready for dinner. And what a dinner we had! Brent took care of reserving us a table at the Charles Inn, (the place we had dinner the night he proposed). We had such a relaxing evening enjoying every morsel and relishing our delicious after dinner coffee:

The night Brent proposed, we took a walk by the lake in Queen's Royal Park and he popped the question in the beautiful white gazebo. If you read my post from our first anniversary, you'll know we started an anniversary photo tradition last year and thought the gazebo would be a great backdrop for year two.

This year's photo is especially significant for us, as we decided it was a great opportunity to showcase an incredibly special addition to our family...

Most of you reading this already know, but for the rest of you our little bean/beanette will be making an appearance the first week of February! Brent's hoping for a Superbowl Sunday baby :)
