Hello! So sorry I haven't posted or commented on your blogs much lately, but I just returned from a much needed romantic eight day road trip with my husband. We visited four cities: St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville, and Louisville, and of course I will spend weeks sharing pictures and stories of all our adventures!
On our first day of vacation, we drove from north central Wisconsin to St. Louis, Missouri. It was quite chilly when we left, and there was still snow on the ground. About eight and half hours later, we arrived to temperatures in the seventies and saw lush green grass, and flowering trees and bulbs. Needless to say, I was in heaven! When we got out of our car, I just lifted my arms to the heavens and soaked in the warm air and sunshine. How good it felt to feel warm again after such a long, hard, cold winter.
Our main goal of this vacation was to spend more time in Tennessee. We seemed to constantly drive through this beautiful state to get somewhere else, and we always thought it would be nice to actually spend some time there. When I started researching all the places to visit in Tennessee I realized we could never see everything in one week, so we decided to visit the western side first, and then the eastern side on a second visit. Well the first place I wanted to see was Memphis, but to get to Memphis we had to drive through St. Louis, Missouri; and since that was more than half way there, we decided to spend the night there, and visit a few attractions while we were there also.
I had driven past the St. Louis Arches many times in my life, but didn't know anything about them. So when my husband asked what I'd like to do in St. Louis, I replied that I'd like to learn more about the arches. So off we went!
It was a bit overcast when we arrived, but the sun broke through later in our visit and my husband got this beautiful picture:
World Fair Grounds.
Hyatt hotel in Chesterfield. I paid only $14.95 to stay here, thanks to Hotels.com which gives you one free night for every ten hotels booked, and it was probably one of the best hotels I ever stayed in. We loved this walk in shower and really enjoyed using it on our romantic getaway!
Have a great day! Amy
