Aug 29 2014 Filed in: Our Favorite Things

Even though summer is just winding down, I am already feeling nostalgic about the months the twins and I just spent in Wisconsin.  Clear and fresh air, state fair culinary delights, and endless time with family all contributed to a magical visit.   Next year, Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wisconsin is at the top of my list of Must's.  Originally The...

Our Favorite Things: Palm Springs Modernism Week
