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!
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!
If you haven’t heard of The Scribble Project, but you love to doodle, you should definitely check it out. They provide you with a blank “scribble sheet” for you to interpret however you’d like. Good for wasting time.
Now, I don’t dare call myself talented in the art department. I just love to doodle. I have decided to keep a folder of my doodles lately. Which is funny since they’re mostly post it notes with robots and bikes on them.
It’s been getting cooler out as of late and that has me really contemplating the best way to enjoy Autumn.
Step 1.) Hard Cider – Check. This delicious concoction is really a great part about fall.
Step 2.) Tights with dresses – Check. Is it wrong that I look forward to my ensembles that involve this combination? Nope.
Step 3.) Pumpkins. Tentative plan for pumpkin carving and seed eating is in the works. I’m super pumped.
Step 4.) Apple orchard/Cider Mill. Well, I may just join the family tomorrow for a bike ride to a Cider Mill for my Dad’s birthday. Let’s pause for a second to point out how awesome it is that my dad wants to go for a bike ride for his 50 somethingth birthday. Very cool, Dad. Very cool.
Step 5.) Costumes, Candy, Cadavers (i.e. Halloween). Okay, so cadavers sounds disgusting….I just wanted a good alliteration.
Step 6.) Scawy Movies. Yes, Scawy. Throw on a good gore fest or foreign horror movie and I’m thrilled. Give me a little Kiki’s Delivery Service on the side and I’m smitten.
Step 7.) You tell me.
