Happy October!

.
It's been a busy few weeks {Last weekend I went up to Michigan State for tailgating and the game, the weekend before I was in Chicago, and the weekend before that I was in a wedding}.  I haven't had time to cook, or work on new projects, so I thought I would share a few pictures of a trip I took last October.  My Mom, aunts, cousins, and I spent the weekend in Northern Michigan visiting wineries.  Northern Michigan is beautiful anytime of the year, but I think it's even more beautiful in the fall.  We stayed in Traverse City and visited the wineries on the Old Mission Peninsula.

A stop at a roadside pumpkin stand.  They had so many beautiful pumpkins & squash.

If you ever have the chance to visit Northern Michigan, do yourself a favor and go!  You will love it.

I hope everyone is having a good start to October.  I'm still trying to figure out how it's October already?

I was just thinking this morning on the way to work that I might take a ride "up north" as I am out of Grand Traverse Late Harvest Riesling. Your beautiful pictures were just the incentive I needed to firm up my plans.

Sure wish I had a ticket for this weeks game!!!! I was at the Notre Dame game and that was a great tailgating night too.

Thanks for the beautiful pictures and great inspiration.

Heather said...

Traverse City is a favorite destination of mine! I love taking roadtrips up through T.C., Sutton's Bay and Northport. There are some beautiful beaches up that way. Great photos!

Alissa, these pictures are gorgeous. I'll have to put Northern Michigan on my travel list. It looks like a seaside paradise. The great lakes always amaze me.
Enjoy!

Pictures of pumpinks and lake where you live are enchanting, photos of vineyard recall so much Italy.
