Sunday Brunch

Monday, June 27, 2011 |


There is a sweet little hidden spot not far from our home that hosts not only a fabulous brunch but also beautiful gardens. They also do amazing dinners that I hope to enjoy one date night soon.

We stole away for a little visit to this beautiful spot on a sunny Sunday in the early afternoon. It was the perfect day in every way.

The sun was out
There was a slight breeze
Sweet summer dresses were a must
and slowing down life {even if only for a short time} was required!

Our reservations were shortly after church. This was the perfect time as I always seem to be quiet internally at this time so the transition was very enjoyable.


I've always admired the color yellow on homes. It's just so welcoming. There are two buildings on the Stonecroft property. They offer over night and weekend package deals. We live so close that it wouldn't be much of a getaway for us but I think we are missing out on a special treat.

During our meal we were entertained by a gregarious 3year old who was designated the family photographer for the day. It was too funny ~ she actually knew what she was doing and took several good shots.

This place knows what they are doing when it comes to working with families. They have a lovely lush large lawn with a big basket of games for the children {big and small} to keep them entertained so that all guaranteed a relaxing visit. I myself wanted to join the croquet game that was just about to begin.



Our time together {as husband and wife} has been minimal lately. My husband has been on travel or out at sea A LOT this year. I don't share about that often as I'm a little unsure about who reads my blog ~ slight paranoia. Because of this, I try to enjoy any time we do get to spend with one another as it is brief and he'll so be off again.


We lingered and enjoyed every minute of our time together and taking in all the summer loving beauty. I'm really looking forward to our next visit. I have heard from a reliable source {our neighbor} that their evening meals are over the top! They too had an exceptional visit and couldn't say enough about the chef or service.


I love the pebble roadways and stone walls ~ so New England.

These are the most beautiful photos. I can just feel the stress and worry start to diminish just looking at them.
The one and only thing better looking than a big, yellow house is a big, red barn. I'll take both.

Forget the city, THAT is my kind of a date. Just beautiful. It sounds like the perfect Sunday morning. Even if time is short with Kevin, it looks like it's being well spent. :)

This looks like a beautiful place to go for lunch in the gorgeous gardens.
Glad that you and your husband were able to spend some quiet time here.
