It’s all about celebrating Anniversaries this year………..

Salem revisited................

I always joke that we are now hosting, as guests, the grown children of parents that stayed with us in years past. Kind of makes you feel your age. Ouch!
Kidding aside, we are glad that they are keeping their love of Salem and the Amelia Payson House in the family and returning time and time again.

Over the weekend, we hosted a couple returning after 12 1/2 years. They spent their Honeymoon in Salem, and stayed with us and have returned to romantically reconnect to Salem once again. While so much has certainly changed in Salem since they were here last, they were quick to notice all the new shops, restaurants, and endless activities that keep the town truly hopping day and night. And, of course, they revisited the House of the Seven Gables, the Trolley and the PEM; memories they felt were well worth repeating.

Will we see them for their 25th? Who knows, but we had a chuckle just thinking of where we all might be in that future time. No promises made, especially from Donald………..

So how do we keep Donald committed at least until Ali gets older / married. That way we can repeat the Mother / Daughter pre-wedding getaway at The Amelia Payson House with you guys!! :-)
