 Back from Europe and reliving the trip through photographs. The first weekend we headed south from Cologne ( spotted a great old camper on the autobahn) and spent a night and day in Heidelberg. A lovely and picturesque university town straight from a story book We walked to the castle for sunset, had schnitzel and beers, a doner kebab for lunch the next day ( "fast" and delicious food), and stayed at the charming Gasthaus Blackmulde. Up next, the Rhein and Mosel Valley!

Just arrived back in Michigan from  the Bloomington Handmade Market and a quick trip to Louisville to visit family. A big thank you to the gals who organize the event and to the awesome volunteers! The show was filled with amazing vendors, friendly visitors,and a sunny spring day. I traded with the super awesome and talented Megan of the Binding Bee for a lovely handmade journal, pictures to come. Dinner at Upland Brewery, drinks at the Atlas bar and Nick's, and a quick stop at the Irish Lion brought an end to our day. Thank you kind people of Bloomington for a great weekend!
