All The Way To The Moon......

I love the early morning when the house is quiet and dark. My alarm clock goes off at 5am every morning and although I hate the sound of the alarm clock I do love those few moments that I have before I have to wake up Jake. I love to crawl into bed with him and steal some of his warmth. I just like to snuggle up next to him and watch him sleep. This morning the window at the head of the bed was cracked so I could hear the sounds of Autumn. The rain and wind were blowing the leaves down the sidewalk. I love the rustling sounds. A gentle morning breeze blew across his face and hair. I like to hold his warm little hands and put my cheek to his and tell him "I love you all the way to the moon"...."I love you too Mama". "Can you hear Mr.Wind chasing the leaves around outside"...."Uh huh" Back to sleep for a bit....Life is good.

Mt. Bruce Wool Festival This Weekend.....

This weekend Sept 26th-27th is the 19th Annual Fall Sheep & Wool Festival @ Mt. Bruce Station in Romeo. Even if you are not so much into sheep & wool this festival is well worth checking out! The drive is wonderful and the grounds are absolutely beautiful! I feel like I am in another country when I go out there! Yvonne Gill-Uhlianuk and her husband Peter own and operate this sprawling farm. They have sheep, geese, huge floppy-eared angora bunnies, cows, a wool shop, a giant farmhouse, a green house, an old log cabin, rolling hills and a gorgeous outdoor brick grilling area where they grill up some very yummy lamb chops! Yvonne was one of the first well respected female chef's in the Metro Detroit area. She was born in New Zealand and came to the states in 1964 when she was 21 years old. She trained as a Chef in Europe and ran several highly acclaimed restaurants and specialty food shops in the Metro Detroit area before marrying her husband Peter (a former chemist for Du Pont) who had been a local farmer that she purchased herbs from back in her restaurant days. This is also a great place to take the kids, you can freely explore the grounds, take a walk out back and see if you can find the old log cabin take a peek inside at the old loft. They are shearing the sheep out in the barn and have many vendors selling many beautiful things. I am going to take a well deserved day off and take a relaxing drive out there to spend the day on Saturday! Hope to see you out there!
