Recently, I was "up north"-as it is commonly referred to by Michiganders-at my cottage in Wolverine, MI. I enjoyed the end of summer by biking along Lake Michigan, visiting Tahquamenon Falls in the Upper Peninsula, then seeing Lake Superior, and doing lots of canning with my mom and family friends. We made marinara sauce, different kinds of salsas, pickles, dilly beans, and peach and blackberry jam (from blackberries on our property). I decided to sketch a still life of our accomplishments.

Tonight I will attend Arts, Beats, & Eats, also in Royal Oak, with some friends. Similarly to its preview, there will be lots of food, drink, and music, but there will also be artist booths.
Tomorrow is Michigan's first football game of the season against Western Michigan. I am so excited to be inside the big house and see our new scoreboards and our new coach at work! GO BLUE! It's gonna be a great weekend :)
