1000 gifts (Detroit edition)

five.

The Melinda crepe at Good Girls Go to Paris Creperie. Cream cheese, brown sugar, lime, heaven. Check this place out--it's on John R right off Woodward. It's just a little window.


six.

Lunch on a shaded patch of grass in Grand Circus Park.


seven.

Free easy parking.


eight.

Community gardens everywhere you look. I'm letting myself dream a bit.


















nine.

A night away. A night on the riverfront.


ten.

Incredible in-laws who love Ellary with all their might and take such good care of her. I can be completely confident in them. What a gift.


eleven.

Two years. Deep love. Thank you, Abba.

your blog is beautiful, the words, photos, all of it.
There is something about the way your hands on resting on your husband in that photo that is breathtaking.
It is nice to meet you here, and there.
Thank you for sharing such grace.

Meg, I have a glimpse of the future! You, overseeing the development of multiple community gardens in Detroit, then holding cooking classes for the community members, then you, writing a book about it - including recipes! I'm dreaming about it...
