Wanderings – Ann Arbor

As a child in the southwest, I never understood why people loved summer until I moved to Ann Arbor in my mid-twenties. Long golden days and cool nights, littered with fireflies, ice cream and more flowers than I’d ever seen.  I’d never really believed in the summers I read about in Anne of Green Gables; Ann Arbor made me understand.

In need of a summer getaway, the Mister and I spent the better part of last week there visiting with old friends, picking blueberries, and eating more than our fair share of ice cream.
