Manteo carries a lot of significance for me and Jake. Its where we got engaged, 11 months later honeymooned, and then 12 months after that celebrated our one year anniversary! As a matter of fact, I don't know that another town has more meaning to me right now at this stage in my life.
Since it holds sentimental value and is just over 2 hours away, it was easy enough to go there for the weekend to get away, relax, and celebrate. We stayed at the same Inn that we did last October and made sure to hit our favorite restaurant, the Outer Banks Brewing Station. We had plans to do dinner at Adrianna's, the site of one our all-time favorite dinners, but a wedding was going on there so we hit another local place instead. It was a pretty chill weekend, which is exactly what we wanted!
Oh, and on Sunday we picked out a pumpkin from a Farmer's Market on the way home... something we put off last year and never got around to doing. I'm pretty excited about it actually! I can't wait to show you pictures after we carve it, but for now I'm keeping secret what its going to look like.
