blackberry bounty

The year I bought my farm Raquel sent me some blackberry bush root stock which I planted.  7 years later, they stand 10 feet high and produce endless giant, juicy blackberries.  They never even make it in the house - I just pick them and eat them every day XOXO

resting Chewy

Young Star Wars fan sporting her Chewbacca costume for the showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the outdoor screen at the Traverse City Film Festival last week.  She was not only wearing this, she was also walking with crutches.  GO GIRL!

Went to an outdoor movie at the Traverse City Film Fest last weekend with my friends Matt & Jeanette and rode in their motorcycle sidecar!  So much fun!
