On the Road with the Princess

So many wonderful comments about our Chinese Princess…it makes my Mama heart so Happy! We are on the road this weekend to Philadelphia and a first train ride for the Princess…


The Princess and I are always up for adventure and with the weather turning warmer ( Although Snow? This afternoon? Really?) we will be able to resume our walks around beautiful Downtown Annapolis. The Navy has brought us to the gem of a city but our hearts are leading us to stay…


We start at our beautiful 1920 Four square rental…It does look spectacular in the winter but I am ready for Spring


We stroll past one of my dream houses…Annapolis is full of dream houses. This is Acton House and it was built in 1770. Isn’t it gorgeous?



Reynolds’s Tavern is located on Church Circle and serves High Tea on the weekends…I can’t wait to take Princess in a few years…they also have a beer Garden in the summer…my husband prefers that experience.


The best part of Reynold’s tavern is Darim..the wonderful flower guy. His flowers are lovely and reasonably priced..plus he is the happiest person I ever met…


Our Princess last year enjoying the flowers!image

We head down the most beautiful Main Street in the country…


…To the ultimate ice cream experience...Storm Brothers….guaranteed to be filled with handsome (and beautiful ) Midshipman on the weekend…

Come and visit…The Princess and I will meet you downtown…we can have ice cream together…or crab cakes…your choice!

  1. Wow, you do live in a beautiful city! And the home you’ll be living in is wonderful. You and Princess will have many happy memories I know, and hubby too! The Main Street looks like the one at Disney World! The flower guy does look like a very happy guy, who wouldn’t be happy to be surrounded by such beauty?
    Thanks so much for sharing and Happy Spring!


  2. Hi Amy,
    Your town looks charming. It reminds me of where I live where we are surrounded by water and a slower moving life style. Love your house! How lovely to have a front veranda. And yes, I agree that is a dream house that you admire. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely day.



  3. Amy, what a lovely stroll with you and THE Princess in Annapolis. I loved seeing Darim and his gorgeous flowers. I giggled at your comment about high tea and beer garden. Fun! Happy Spring!


    1. My husband is a Navy Officer as well, almost retired. He was a midshipman so he will begin and end his Naval career in the same place! It is a lovely vacation spot!


  4. What a pretty town you live on! I will join you and the Princess for those treats, and maybe bring another princess with me.
    Lovely to find you on Sandi’s link party.


  5. Very pretty images of your town. I’ve not been to Annapolis, but I would love to visit there some day. I love the East Coast, and especially for the history of great places like the Navy’s home base. Your Princess is a sweetie!


  6. As many times as we have traveled to the East Coast, we have missed Annapolis. I just love the redbrick of the old colonial cities. And Ice Cream, after CRABCAKES sounds delicious, thanks for the tour, Sandi


  7. Annapolis is a wonderful place to explore. We left our boat there a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to experience the entire area.


  8. What a lovely view of your life and town.

    You and your precious Princess are creating sweet memories.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us all at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We are so glad you are here!


  9. I’m an east coaster (lived in Philly for 10 years and D.C. for 5) so I appreciate the photos. I miss it a lot sometimes. Your daughter is adorable. Happy Easter and thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen


  10. I grew up in the Philly area and moved far away after college. After seeing the world I met my husband and find myself in Annapolis! We love to visit DC…the cherry blossoms are gorgeous right now!


  11. Lovely outing with a beautiful princess…doesn’t get any better than that!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!


  12. We visited Philadelphia a few years ago and absolutely love it! We saw more of the historical sights and I could have stayed for several days to take it all in. Thank you for sharing your beautiful city!


  13. What a lovely city this is Amy. It looks like the quintessential American town, one where leave it to beaver might have lived. Thank you for sharing it with us. and giving us loads of sweet inspiration.


  14. How fun! I love a train and only get to ride when we are in New York or taking a trip somewhere…no local trains in our area. Sigh. Thank you for the great tour of town and homes. Have never been, so seeing it through your eyes…lovely~
