Brooksville, Florida

This weekend we took a little trip to Brooksville for lunch and a little sightseeing. It's about 40 minutes north of us so not too far of a drive. We actually had our engagement pictures done here and loved the downtown. Since then, we had been meaning to go back and visit and finally did it.
Being the tea lovers that we are, we were so excited to see that they have a tea place in that area, The Tilted Teacup. We had lunch there and the food was delish. The place itself was so cute. It's basically and old home converted into a tea room.

While there, the Mr. and I were talking about how awesome it would be to open our own tea place. It would be perfect. For one, we love to go to tea places for high tea. The Mr. loves to cook and with the limited menu, he can perfect and make from scratch. I love to host parties and we would be able to host baby showers, bridal showers, and birthdays. The hours wouldn't be crazy which I appreciate.
After tea, we visited the May Stringer Home which is now a museum. When we went there, we thought we would just walk around but they actually have guided tours. Our inner geeks jumped for joy. Had no idea how big of a role Brooksville played in the Wars, providing food to soldiers etc. It was nice to see all the vintage items although the place was crammed with things. All items that have been donated by people over time. It was almost like being on an episode of Hoarders. Aside from the crowdedness, we had a great time.

Of course, with every historic home or place, there is a haunted story that goes with this place. Apparently, one of the owners baby's died shortly after birth and still resides in this place. I am not one for scary stories. As soon as they mentioned it, I was out. Ha.
