2012: Week 38
We enjoyed a fun day out with friends at Spicer Orchards last Saturday; the traditional donut & fresh cider was a welcome fall experience, but I was disappointed to find that they had no pick-your-own apples available due to the weather this past spring. We did, however, take a “train” ride through the orchard & left with a half gallon of fresh cider.
And we enjoyed our first fireplace fire in our new home over the weekend, which I imagine will never get old to me; I have always loved sitting by a warm fire.
I especially love this photo of Averie, below, playing the part of a pumpkin DJ. You can view more photos from our orchard visit here.
2012: Week 37
We had the pleasure of seeing Iron & Wine & Glen Hansard perform at The Michigan Theater last Saturday & it was amazing of course. I apologize for stating the obvious, but I have to say it…those boys can sing! Both performances were fantastic & they came together at the end for a cover of Bring It On Home To Me.
The ending was something else though; after encore performance, Glen Hansard & his ridiculously talented band members literally stepped off of the stage and continued performing up the aisles, out of the theater, & into a nearby alley on the street. Perfect ending to an amazing concert!
We celebrated Averie’s first birthday with a party last weekend at the lovely home of Ralph & Suzanne & all had a wonderful time! It was great to see & spend time with so many friends & to watch Averie very daintily take apart her first birthday cake; like the true lady that she is, she seemed a bit unsure about diving right into it in front of an audience of adoring onlookers. Happy birthday, little A, we love you!
