Weekend Getaway

Vacation for two

We booked an AIRBNB and spent the weekend in CT.
First we stopped at the Wadsworth Athenuem for the 
Guise & Dolls exhibit featuring Mapplethorpe & Warhol.
It was fantastic. I was ecstatic to see prints by Mapplethorpe.
We toured the museum and I even stopped to draw (which made me super happy, even though I am so, so bad at it!)

I packed a lunch of fun things like chicken salad and cheese snacks.
Oh, and ANIMAL CRACKERS!

After that we drove to the Book Barn.
It was freezing cold but it is always fun looking at the books!

After that we headed over to the room we booked. I was very nervous because this was the first time we booked a shared house versus a private house or apartment. We ended up having a lovely time! The host was gracious enough to make us coconut scones for breakfast. YUM!
She works in fashion so we got a glimpse of racks and racks of designer clothes. And the icing on the cake – she had a dog who was adorable and delightful!

That night we had dinner at Devs on Bank per our host’s recommendation.  It was the best food we have had in quite some time! The place was empty and it was a bit romantic!

The next day we had pizza at the famous Mystic Pizza! Pizza was delicious on a cold, cold day! We took the time to walk around town and stopped at a few shops including a bookstore. On our way home we hit up Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods (awful!)

Finally we returned to our sweet dog who we missed so much!

One snafu though – I somehow BROKE the film in my camera:

Sweet Dog

My best friend sent me a text message letting me know she had to put her dog down today.
I was so sad for her.
I decided to take my camera out and photograph my dog tonight…..
