P is for Plantation

One of the cool things about living in Mississippi is that there are awesome weekend getaways that are close by, comfortable, and steeped in both history and culture.

For Jo's fabulous birthday weekend we had the chance to stay at Monmouth Plantation, which now operates as a Bed and Breakfast.
The mansion was gorgeous. The gardens and ponds were gorgeous. The food was delicious (even though the complimentary hors d'oeuvres consisted of crackers and gross sausage).

We had a very fancy dinner at the Dunleith Plantation Castle Restaurant as well. The food was DELICIOUS! It was SO GOOD. Jo and I made sure to eat our dinner in true, proper fashion (fork in the left hand, knife in the right--at all times). We had such a good time.

We finally got a taste of some good Southern hospitality, and we relaxed in the luxury of the finest room we've ever stayed in--bathrobes and all.

Though I don't know just what it will be, I'm sure a story will come out of this historical and cultural adventure. I can't wait to see what it is. 

Have you been anywhere cool lately?
