Mountain Anniversary Weekend

So, a little time's gone by, but I want to share a few pics from our weekend in the mountains at the beginning of October.

Big Bear Lake is a special place for my husband and I.  It's where he proposed to me and we got married at The Inn at Fawnskin, which is a Bed and Breakfast across the lake from Big Bear city.

The gorgeous Inn

 Our stay for the weekend was wonderful--October in the mountains (sigh). We walked around the city and looked at the fall colors.

We rented bicycles and rode through a park on the North side of the Lake...

We talked about our dreams for the future...

window shopped, and ate lunch outside at the Peppercorn Grille.

For our Anniversary Dinner, we bought a couple of nice bottles of wine and got carry-out from our favorite Big Bear restaurant, The Himalayan...

Us with our buddies, Buddha and Ganesh...

And dined on our pumpkin-spice wedding cake-top, wrapped so carefully by my mom after our wedding (thanks Mom and Dad for getting it safely to our freezer!)...and oh, it was STILL heavenly...

Made by THIS incredible bakery

Being in the crisp mountain air with the beautiful fall colors and nature, my yummy, fuzzy sweater and my bestest bud was such a treat.  And our homecoming wasn't so bad, either...

Big hugs,


  1. awww.... looks like such fun! What a beautiful place! My mom was going to surprise us by wrapping up our cake, but when we lost power for a week the following summer, it was destroyed. =) Oh well. Your cake still looked yummy, though!

  2. It really was fun, Kim. Such a bummer about your cake! :) Did you guys have something in it's place?
