Quick Trip to St. Michaels, Maryland

This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Ah, MONDAY.  This Monday marks the beginning of our “dog days of summer.”  We’ve had lots of wonderful things going on around here, but each one took a chunk out of our weekends.  From here on out, we have very little planned so I’m breathing a sigh of relief and am ready to R-E-L-A-X!

Speaking of, I promised a travel linky on Friday but got caught up finishing the last minute details for Noodle’s Curious George 3rd birthday party (monkey cupcakes!  balloons!  pasta salad!  man in the yellow hat cookies!).  So here it is.  If you have any travel related post on your blog from ANY point in time, I hope you’ll link it up here!  Now that I have a bit more free time I want to spend it living vicariously through you and your travels.

Last weekend I sneaked away for  a quick girl’s weekend with two great friends.  We visited St. Michaels, Maryland for a little R&R.  Such a cute town, and the inn where we stayed was amazing.  They truly catered to our every whim, whether it was giving us a mini-fridge or a few spoons to eat our yogurt (that we bought down the street at Acme, HA!)  Belatedly I realized I didn’t get a single photo of my friends.  Boo.  Just means we’ll have to do it again soon to right that wrong.  The time away was just so relaxing, I barely took any photos at all.  Here are a few of the ones I did take:


my favorite shop in the entire town; so inspiring!


St. Michaels is a sailing town; lots of men with brightly colored paints and a yacht in the harbor!


a cute town needs cute signs; here’s just one of them!

the breakfast area (overlooks the water… heavenly…)
This was the view from our room.  A girl could get used to living like this…


the inn


yes, that’s a wagon full of puppies.


this shop was divine, full of goodies!  look at the window display, so many great ideas in one place.


This shirt makes me laugh every time.  Someday I’ll buy it…

One of my favorite moments was a leisurely discussion (possibly almost 2 hours long} over a flight of beer samples at Eastern Shore Brewing.  If there’s a brewery in town, leave it to me to find it!  The Hefeweizen was divine.  As was the conversation.  😉  Love you, girls!

Now it’s your turn, link up.  If you don’t have a blog, simply comment to tell me your favorite places to go.  Or, even a place you’d love to visit.  To sweeten the deal, one person who comments and/or links (do both for two entries) will win $25 to spend any way you please at Pear Tree Greetings.  You can choose birth announcements, party invitations, holiday photo cards (WHAT?  did I just say that?!?)– whatever you want.  I’ll choose the winner next Monday through Random.org.

There’s no requirements to link up, but it would be great to visit the link before and after yours to spread the travel bug.  You can link up posts that have anything to do with travel– favorite places, advertise your hometown, travel tips/tricks to pass along– it’s all good.

As for Mondays, bring. it. on.  Go ahead and link and/or comment for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Pear Tree Greetings— and to share your favorite travel destinations too, of course!

  1. Oh, please let this be the day I win something from Pear Tree! I haven’t been to THAT many places, but Bermuda has been my favorite yet, with Berlin a close 2nd and anywhere on a lake in Michigan 3rd. My heart skipped a beat when you said Hefeweizen. Sweet, sweet hefe!!

  2. Thanks for hosting the linky. I love travel, so this is right up my alley! And, a giveaway to go along with it makes it even more fun. ; )

  3. Olivemom, can we grab a Hefeweizen the next time I visit Philly?

    Carrie, I had lots of fun on the get together. How should we top it next year? (And I’m thinking of buying Olivemom some Pear Tree cards!)

  4. That inn looks beautiful, Carrie! Looks so nice and relaxing!
    One of my favorite places? Estes Park, CO. Wish we were all there together!!
    Another favorite? Hawaii!

  5. The places I’ve been where I can’t wait to go back? South Maui, Glacier National Park, Yosemite, and Seward, Alaska (I’d love to go back to Denali, but only if there was a guarantee that we could see the mountain!)
    The #1 place I would like to visit is the Galapagos. We’re waiting until our little guy is old enough to appreciate it himself; we probably need to start saving for it now!

  6. I was in Charleston and Savannah in the springtime, what great places to visit at that time of year. Amazing restaurants, friendly people, rich history.

  7. I need to add this place to my list of destinations. It looks amazing. I love all the shopping (obviously).

  9. Gorgeous photos! We just got back from Newport, I linked up my pics. Have I mentioned that I LOVE summer?!!

  10. I moved to Finland many years ago after a summer vacation and I love it here. I’d definitely recommend it during the summer (and winter if you love snow). I’d also love to go to Paris again.
    And for something a bit more closer to home for most, the Oregon coast is just beautiful.

  11. Great giveaway, and amazing trip! My favorite place that I have traveled (and am dying to go back to) was Mykonos, Greece. The Greek Islands are seriously gorgeous, and it has an amazing nightlife!

  12. I live out of state from my mom/sis/family…I am leaving tomorrow for a 2 week visit home -I can’t wait-I haven’t been home in a year thanksa
