a short list of reasons I love autumn

Friday, October 11th, 2013

1. Layers, sweaters, vests, and boots. And blankets on the bed. 2. Corn mazes. 3. Apple cider, even if none of the cider mills have a gluten free donut option for dipping into the cider. Yet. 4. My renewed desire to bake – and starting a gluten free sour dough starter.

18 months ago

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Eighteen months ago husby and I got married. Up until this point I haven’t written about it or shared the photos with anyone other than a few close family members. Because it was perfect. And I didn’t want anything to tarnish the glowy-ness of the memories of that moment and the days surrounding it. And […]

First Anniversary Celebrations

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

We decided to celebrate our first anniversary by using the weekend to just be together. We enjoyed some good food, watched some movies, and spent Sunday at a corn maze, picking out pumpkins, petting farm animals, and getting cider and donuts at our favorite cider mill.

One of the things I love most about Ann Arbor is the liberal sprinkling of maple trees.  It makes autumn a most beautiful season to watch.  The trees are only […]

Is it fall yet?

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

The past month or so in the midwest has been a heat advisory fest.  As much as I love our cute fourth floor walk up apartment, when heat rises and there’s not so much as  a breeze to move it around it makes us a little crazy. I’ve been ready for the heat to break […]

Seven Things: Wedding Decisions

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

I was never one of those little girls who dreamed about her wedding.  In fact, I don’t think I ever even really thought about it until the second time Fiance and I talked about it.  So once the question was asked and answered and all our friends and family had been told, I suddenly found […]

enjoying the autumn colors

Friday, October 29th, 2010

A couple weekends ago, one of my besties came out for a mini autumn vacay. Let me tell you, Michigan is so beautiful during the fall.  The only thing that would make it a more picturesque season is if there were a couple thousand lakes around. Boyfriend’s uncles accused me of being a huanted house […]
