Spring Songs





GypsyInMe





And Happy Autumn to dear blog friends in the S.H.!


Things aren't blooming around here quite yet,
(in fact, we are expecting snow tonight)
but the sweet birds are singing...

I'm very happy to be blogging again, and excited to continue with lovely  Dzintra's Donna Hay cook-ups...
Sadly, I don't have access to the gorgeous magazines anymore, but my library carries many of her books.






In the coming days I will be cooking from
"The Instant Cook"







A dear friend was kind enough to gift me this beautiful book, and I can't wait to get started on the recipes and share the results with you...
I hope the new season brings many joys to you all!


Thank you so very much for your kindness, dear friends and readers....
for sticking with me throughout my "holiday hiatus"...
:)

Love and Blessings

Simply the Best






*** DULUTH ***






 
...one of my favorite places on earth...







* infinite zen *






How fun it was to discover that this magical city was just voted "Best Town Ever" by the readers of Outside Magazine!















I'd love to share a few photos from our most recent visit...



( photos on this post GypsyInMe)














So exciting to watch these big guys come into port!


























I don't know what took us so long, but this was the first year that we drove across the lift bridge to "Minnesota Point"...
part of the largest freshwater sand pit in the world!
The weather was gorgeous...a perfect day at the beach...
 
 
 

































("scattered driftwood on the beach"....
Abba song playing in my head...remember that one?)
;)




















The homes on this tiny
strip of land are charming and unique...
 
 
 
 





























It is a well-known fact that sea air makes one hungry...
 
 
 
 

Yummy pizza at Lake Avenue Restaurant
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Amazing sweet treats at Amazing Grace Bakery and Cafe 
 
This may have been the most delicious cheesecake I've ever tasted...sour cream frosting tops it off... perfection...


a delightful al fresco evening








 


My absolute favorite place in Duluth?
 
 
 
 
 
I can spend hours perched on these ancient glacial rocks...
 





Thank you for joining me, friends!
Until next time...
xoxo
