Spooky Times

While I was in Michigan for the weekend, John had to kick me out of the apartment for a while.  I guess his landlord has something against adorable animals that aren’t Wednesday the cat.

Needless to say, this left me destinationless with a dog so we went for a nice long walk.  The weather was really nice and the trees were lovely so we obviously had to get creepy.

It’s not my fault that I get so wrapped up in holidays and feel the need to take a stroll past the cemetary. Man, that came out wrong.  Well, either way we walked by a cemetary and I’ve always been super intrigued by them and the stories of the people in them but dogs aren’t allowed so we were perimeter bound.  Here’s what we saw!

If you fall in the Fall, you’ll see

Well, Chicago…As much as I enjoy living inside you, sometimes it’s really wonderful to get away.  Back to my roots if you will.

And this weekend allowed for just that.  I took a trip to Grand Rapids for a traditional rite of the season among friends: Pumpkin Carving Weekend.  Even just on the drive in I was getting into it.  The fall colors are amazing in Michigan.  I’ve yet to see them paralleled here.

I took oh so many pictures so I’ll only share a few here but trust me, good times were definitely had.  It was one of those rare long weekends with perfect weather, ample treats, and some beautiful long walks.  I might just split this into a few posts but here is our trip to our favorite cider mill and nearby pumpkin yard.  And what I carved in mine. Hope your weekends were just as splendid!
