More Adventures

Abby's visit this past weekend was the stuff of dreams: food, downtown Goshen, movie-watching, Sharon, Better World Books and more food. It was such a relaxing weekend... I'm so glad she was able to visit!

In other news, this week Mr. Ross and I are planning our one year wedding anniversary (!!!). We've taken Tuesday and Wednesday off of work next week (in addition to Monday... oh, the beauty of being married on Labor Day weekend) to celebrate and spend time with each other doing the things we love.

Over the weekend, we will be taking a mini vacation in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This will be a first-time trip for both of us and we're excited to spend time exploring the historic college town. I doubt we'll be able to scratch the surface of everything the city has to offer, but we plan on visiting some of Ann Arbor's numerous attractions. A few ideas: a trip to author Dave Egger's  Robot Supply and Repair, exploring one (or two) of the many UofM museums and the Henry Ford, finding all the Fairy Doors, and perhaps taking a culinary tour of the city with Savor Ann Arbor. Bonus: Ann Arbor is only 20 minutes from Ikea Michigan.

I don't know if I have very many Michigan readers, but has anyone ever visited Ann Arbor? I'm using the Design*Sponge city guide as a reference as well as the Ann Arbor calendar of events, but if you have any tips or restaurant recommendations, let me know!

The one year anniversary is always special. My husband and I went to Cape Cod and stayed in a B&B. It was so relaxing and beautiful. Now we have a sweet little baby, which is amazing. But some nights I would give anything to be back on the Cape!
