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

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!
