Just wanted to pop in and say I hope your enjoying the last holiday weekend of the summer. It's really hard to believe that summer is drawing to a close - but I am so ready and doing the happy dance here at the farmhouse in celebration of autumn. Mr. Farmhouse and I just got back from a wonderful road trip with our desitnation being this beautiful place
The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan. Isn't that porch just amazing and OMG the flowers on the island where amazing. We had both been to the island as kids for a day trip but I wanted to go back and stay at The Grand Hotel and enjoy the island for a couple of days. Because there are no cars on the island (with the exception of the fire truck, ambulance and garbage truck) you get around by bike or horses. We were picked up and taken to the hotel by a horse drawn carriage
How fun is that
So back in May Mr. Farmhouse surprised me with a little red camaro convertable that I've named Jewel because she just sparkles. ( Please don't hate me lol - it's something we had been talking about getting and just so ya know he drives an almost 9 year old Tahoo affectionately called Old Rusty that's loaded with lots of quirks lol - don't get me started on that truck.)
Anywho we decided it would be a great way to take the trip and we were blessed with amazing weather for traveling and having the top down. Major drawback to Ms. Jewel - no extra room what so ever - good news for Mr. Farmhouse - little shopping could be done along the way LOL.
So now it's back reality. I've given myself yesterday and today to regroup, do laundry, go through the mail and chill. But I am ITCHIN to get into the fall bins and start decorating. Tomorrow we will work outside and pull the remaining flowers and clean things up a bit and get a few falls things out onto the porch. Then it will be time to move inside and dig in and I can't wait.
Have a great holiday weekend and if your traveling - be safe.
