Two weeks ago, Conrad and I celebrated our three-year wedding anniversary with a little staycation at a charming hotel in the Stockholm archipelago. Though we are usually quite low-key about our anniversary, this year we felt like doing something a bit more special.

Thankfully, I remembered that I had a gift card from my office from Christmas last year that was expiring this (!!) month, so I got online and looked at what gift options were offered, and saw that one option was to book an overnight stay at a boutique inn with a 3-course dinner. Sold!

We chose Säby Säteri, an old Swedish mansion-turned-hotel & conference center, surrounded by forest, meadows, and the rocky coast of the Baltic Sea.

After exploring the gorgeous hotel grounds, we changed into some comfy clothes and took a short walk to the seaside before dinner.

We couldn’t get over the beautiful surroundings. Finally, our stomachs rumbling audibly, we raced back to the room to change once more for our romantic anniversary dinner.

I wish I had taken more photos of the food though, because it was DI-VINE. Truly delicious, fresh, and made from only local ingredients, not to mention the impeccable wine pairings offered.

Have a great week,
