First Anniversary in Galena, IL

This weekend my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary :)

It was such a wonderful time being together and remembering what this life is all about!

We stayed at the DeSoto House on main st and loved it! We even said that when we go back we will stay there again. It's a little pricey, but worth it to us to be staying right in the heart of Galena!

It was raining so we didn't get as much in as we had hoped but we have nothing negative to say about our trip! We have T-Mobile and had no cell service and there was basically no wifi (the wifi was super slow) and we were OK with that! It forced my husband to talk to me :)

Here are the places we went and highly recommend:

Desoto House

The Log Cabin

Galena CellarsΒ (you can tour the vineyard, we just did a tasting downtown)

Otto's Place

The Golden Hen Cafe

Galena Brewing Company

We can't wait until we can go back and try all of the other things that Galena has to offer!

What does it take to start losing weight - and keeping it off?
