Snapshots from: Graduation in Annapolis

A month ago, Brandon and I traveled back to Maryland with his parents and grandparents to attend his grad school graduation. We had such a nice time catching up with friends and revisiting all our favorite spots from the time we lived there. We even made time for a day trip to the Eastern Shore to visit the Queenstown Outlets and the quaint little town of St. Michaels. Another fun surprise was that on the weekend we visited, Downtown Annapolis had been transformed into a full on movie set! We kept hoping for a celebrity sighting, but no such luck... Anyways, I ended up feeling so thankful we were able to make it to the graduation ceremony. At the time of both mine and Brandon's college graduations, we were so busy planning our wedding and our move that I can barely remember the graduation festivities. It really was nice to be able to be 100% present at this one and really take the time to be proud of my husband and truly triumph in what felt like one of the first significant accomplishments of our marriage!

As I've probably mentioned at least fifty times on this blog, Annapolis is such a great little city to spend a weekend if you ever get the chance! Here are my Annapolis recommendations:

Best place to:
     Stop for ice cream: Annapolis Ice Cream Company (My favorite flavor is Peanut Butter Oreo!)
     Enjoy traditional afternoon tea: Reynolds Tavern
     Grab a crepe and a cup of coffee: Sofi's Crepes (For savory, try the Kevin Bacon. For sweet, Nutty Banana!)
     Eat a delicious meal or linger over late afternoon wine and oysters: Harry Browne's
     Peruse a wonderfully curated little decorating/antique shop: Natalie Silitch
     Get lost for an hour or two: Annapolis Bookstore
     Treat yourself to a cupcake: JoJo's Cupcakes
     Take a day trip: St. Michaels
     Pick up souvenirs for your furry friends: Paws Pet Boutique

Have you ever been to Annapolis, or anywhere else in Maryland? What recommendations would you add to my list?

  1. Congratulations, Brandon! Great pics! It's so funny that you mention the movie set...it was fun for a couple of days, but it became the biggest pain in the butt! The crew was SO rude, you could not use the sidewalk, they took up one million parking spots, and it went on for so long! Arggggh ;)
    I like your Annapolis list, good stuff!

    1. Emily: That's exactly what Brandon and I were saying!! It was only fun since we were visiting. I cannot even imagine dealing with that mess on our street, having to find parking spots, and just driving to work in the mornings. What a nightmare! And the crew was rude on top of it?? Ridiculous!! I feel for you guys so deeply, haha!
