Time flies when you're having fun
It's hard to believe that at this time one year ago today, I was shimmying into my wedding dress and getting ready to head over to the Mairie for our wedding. On one hand, this year has gone by in a flash, but on the other, it often seems as if we have always been married.
To celebrate our first anniversary, we decided to go away for the weekend. We had received a Smartbox as a wedding gift and had originally planned on using that, but after calling around to five or six places all around France, everything was full. So it was back to the drawing board. We were looking for a place around two hours from Paris, but like with the Smartbox, most hotels were full. Side note - what is up with so many people being on holiday the last weekend in September??
So the search continued, and I finally came across a hotel in Le Havre that had a 2-for-1 offer including spa access and 10€ in tokens for their casino. Everything looked really nice online and even though Le Havre isn't known as a romantic destination, we were quite frankly tired of looking for something, so we booked it.
La Cueillette d'Octeville.
**I'd also like to give a special anniversary shout-out to J&O, who are celebrating their 3rd anniversary today - it's not too often that you meet another couple who got married on the same day in the same Mairie!
