weekend bits



my best friend, elisabeth, came to visit this weekend and we spent it showing her the best of our new hometown. saturday we stopped by found to drop off some cookies and to shop for some vintage dresses. we didn't get to see the st. patricks day parade but we did make it to the new holland brewery for some beer and irish tunes. we walked the streets of downtown holland and went into some of our favorite shops. we visited our new house, met one of our new neighbors, and were already invited over for a grill out. we then drove through a couple other lake towns before heading to fennville to eat dinner at the best restaurant in west michigan, a farm to table concept, salt of the earth. not only did we eat some delicious food but our wonderful server, sara, took eleanor for a walk around the restaurant and into the kitchen, leaving me to actually eat a meal. after a relaxing morning on sunday we went for a walk down to lake michigan where eleanor walked on sand for the first time. it was such a lovely weekend with the best weather and i'm so glad i got to share our new home with elisabeth. it looks like the weather is going to continue to be exceptionally beautiful this week and we will be taking full advantage.
