Labor Day Weekend Wrap-Up

Hello my lovely readers – I hope that you all had a great Labor Day weekend!

I was so excited to have my younger sister, V, come for a visit.  She and my SIL, B, were running in the 5K at the Blueberry Festival, and she asked if she could stay with us for a few days beforehand.  Of course!!!  She got here on Friday evening (after taking a slight detour into Michigan – easy to do if you’re unfamiliar with the area!) and we had fun pretty much the whole weekend long.  Here are the highlights…

  • Visiting the lovely South Bend Farmer’s Market for some peaches and carrots
  • Going to South Bend Chocolate Company‘s flagship store for some “almost perfect” chocolates
  • Stopping by a local discount and used bookstore for some great deals
  • Driving up to Michigan for a wine tasting at The Round Barn Winery (the Edel Doux was our favorite – it was like drinking dessert from a wine glass)
  • Watching “Get Smart” and watching old episodes of “Friends”
  • Visiting Notre Dame’s campus and seeing Chris’ office

And in case you’d like some photographic evidence of all the fun times, scroll down!

We had a great weekend, and I’m so glad that I got to spend some time with my sister.  I’m looking forward to seeing even more family in the upcoming months.  Have a great Labor Day!
