despite the gray skies and unpredictable cold in minnesota this week we were able to get a little sap so that my dad could teach me his maple syruping ways. all that work for a cup and a half of sweetness hardly seems worth it, but once our jars were filled, it was a proud moment. we always take on big projects when I go home and this trip was no exception. i love my family and our northwoods cabin, and will always find an excuse to visit. but for now, it’s back to michigan and back to life and definitely back to regular blogging next week.
