I just spent 5 days in Maryland visiting one of my oldest friends, Joanie, in Crofton, Maryland. Every year I travel there with another childhood friend, Annie – and we always have a great time. We have all been friends since 1st grade and we were bridemaids in each others’ weddings (and I was Joanie’s Matron of Honor when I was 9 months pregnant with my youngest!)

I never get tired of visiting Annapolis. I love the shopping and the food and, of course – the company of my friends, but there is something about the beauty of the place that lures me back each year. Not only was it the first capitol of the United States, it probably is one of the most preserved historic places in our country.
Today I wanted to share just a few photos of the colorful houses I found, especially on Pinkney Street. These mostly shiplap siding row homes are so charming to me. While there are grander homes in Annapolis, I seem to gravitate toward these simple, yet colorful spaces. Let me know what you think!
Lovely brown/yellow combo. Even the door to the alley is accentuated!
Classic red and black
I am loving this blue door!
One of the most photographed homes on the street! How happy!
