A visit to Grand Rapids

Last week Matt, Eleanor, and I took a road trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan to visit my cousins and God daughter, Suki. Eleanor made instant friends with Koji, their new pup and Matt was thrilled to meet Suki for the first time.

We had such a wonderful time, it was sad to leave. Adam and Erika have a lovely home filled with wonderful goodies and they both have beautiful studios. Erika was busy working on a beautiful patchwork afghan for Specks & Keepings come winter. I can't wait to see it finished. They made us a warm breakfast every morning and delicious dinners every night. Suki was fantastically excited to see us both and is such a special girl. We went to Lake Michigan and Suki was excited and cautious when walking on sand for the first time. We did lots of playing and giggling.
You can see more photos of our visit on Erika's lovely blog.


  1. Looks like a lovely time! Funny they have a pet named Koji too!

  2. Yes, when they were deciding on names, I told them about your Koji!
