Anniversary Trip


Since the husband recently started a new job and doesn't have much vacation time until the end of the year, a quick weekend trip was in store for our first anniversary. Since neither of us had ever been (but we've heard great things) we headed to New Buffalo, Michigan. Just a short drive from Chicago it turned out to be the perfect trip. There was some time at the beach, bikes rides through town and a trip to the vineyards. We stayed here and although we only went to two we really liked the Round Barn Winery and Brewery (which is the uh, round barn pictured below). There was lots of good food and an amazing farmers market - all around a great trip!

We almost parked our car in the driveway and just moved right into this house. The shingles, the flowers, be still my heart...

This concoction involved pico de gallo, shrimp, guacamole and other spicy goodness:

As I am reading this I realize we essentially ate and drank our way through New Buffalo! But I guess that's the sign of a good vacation, no? The farmers market was amazing - I actually made a joyful noise when I bit into one of the honey crisp apples. Mmmmm...
