Happy Weekend!

It was such a joy to celebrate my cousin's wedding last weekend. The wedding ceremony was here in the Twin Cities, which meant we didn't have to travel for a family wedding. VERY different for us, with all of our family living in South Dakota and North Dakota. THEY came to US. !! My parents and sister Jessica's family stayed with us for the weekend, it was great to catch up in person. And we hosted a little gathering around the bonfire after the wedding for those family members who decided to spend another night in the Twin Cities. It was a lovely fall evening gathered around the fire.

We're hosting an AWESOME giveaway right now on Instagram. You could win a Vitamix blender! Scroll down for a link to take you there.

Thank you so much for joining us here each week, for reading the blog, and for following along on social media. We are grateful for your company.

Wishing you an awesome weekend!

CRUMBS: What We Made Recently

I made Apple Peanut Butter Cookies last weekend, before company arrived for the wedding. I left the cookies out on the counter...and watched them disappear... Such a great fall treat, with all the awesome apples right now!
