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!
