We had a lovely Saturday in Midland, Michigan and toured their farmers market. I brought home late-season blueberries.

We toured the Alden B. Dow house in Midland, too. Can you believe this was built between 1937 and 1940?

  1. Cinnamon Girl Cider sounds like something I need to try. Same with that butterscotch pudding. And that pizza! I love these posts 🙂 Congrats on your new niece!!

    • Aw, thanks Sues! The cinnamon girl cider is seriously the best cider! It’s refreshing, but tastes just like cinnamon apples.
