Welcome September

By all of these lovely tokens September days are here, 
With Summer's best of weather And Autumn's best of cheer.
  ~Helen Hunt Jackson

Welcome September. I have missed you.
The leaves are already beginning to change 
thanks to some unseasonable cool and rainy 
weather. The sunflowers are blooming and 
Fall is most certainly on it's way.

The morrow was a bright September morn;
The earth was beautiful as if newborn;
There was nameless splendor everywhere,
That wild exhilaration in the air,
Which makes the passers in the city street
Congratulate each other as they meet.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

Wishing you a safe, healthy and very happy

A Girlfriend's Getaway

3 of my oldest and dearest friends and I recently returned from
 a little girlfriend's getaway! We ventured North to Frankenmuth, Michigan,
Michigan's Little Bavaria.
What a beautiful and friendly town.

Bronner's Christmas Wonderland, the world's biggest Christmas store!

There are gorgeous, well tended flowers every where in town. We enjoyed 
fun little shops, a river boat tour, horse
 drawn carriage rides and delicious restaurants.


Zehender's of Frankenmuth is a tradition with all who visit the area.
Their family style, all you can eat chicken dinners 
are oh so filling & delicious!

The Bavarian Inn was such fun for lunch. German bands and dancing and this
yummy, and geographically correct, pot pie too!

Zehnder's Holz Brucke (German for wooden bridge
looks as though it could have been plucked 
up from the Black Forest or a river valley in 
Switzerland and planted astride the Cass River in
 the middle of town. Though completed in 1979,
 the architects were faithful to traditional covered 
bridge timber framing techniques. 


Wilkommen. Of course in German it means
welcome...and we felt just that in Frankenmuth. Welcome!
