About a month ago, my family took a 4-day road trip up to Traverse City, Michigan. I’m no stranger to Michigan, but my family and I typically frequent Southwestern Michigan. Even though we were only up North for 4 days, we sure crammed a lot of activities (and driving) into that short time. In today’s post, I’ve listed everything we did, ate, slept and whether or not I would do it again.
Happy first day of fall everyone! Today’s post is in collaboration with the absolutely wonderful woman behind the blog Savvy Southern Belle, Tiffani. Tiffani reached out to me asking if I wanted to collaborate on a post and giveaway centered around our favorite season: fall. Of course, I was all in. Today, I will be sharing with you the things that are necessities for me during the fall season and, if you stay tuned until the end, there is a giveaway giving away some of the things both Tiffani and I deemed essential for the fall season. Without further ado, here are my fall essentials and, to those who enter the giveaway, good luck!
Why yes, you’ve assumed correctly. I, Kristine, have successfully baked my first pie from (semi-) scratch! Its been a long time in the making and it wasn’t as disastrous as I was expecting. That being said, there was a bit of improvisation and problem-solving, but man, did the pie turn out yummy. I have spoken to many people about baking and my pie experience and thought that any first-time-pie-bakers out there could benefit from my learning experience. Start preheating your oven, it’s time to bake a pie!
