A Wild Wonderful Weekend

We had a wild wonderful weekend this past weekend. We drove to Petoskey with a large load of furniture to restock our space at Then & Now. We were so please to make this trip - our space was nearly empty. December/January sales were good for furniture as well as smalls. So restock we did! Above are a few images of how it looked when we left Sunday afternoon.
However it is winter in Michigan and we had a slight delay in getting there when we hit a patch of black ice and the trailer decided to drive the suburban. Dan did an excellent job of keeping us from rolling as we headed for the ditch. Can't say much for the "trailers" driving ability, it wanted to go another way.Needless to say we had quite a bit of triage to do to furniture once we got to Petoskey. But of course a carpenter is never without his tool and touch up kit.We were greeted by Tracy and Cindy @ Then & Now with with a glass of wine to calm our nerves - perfect!
Later that evening we tucked into my brothers house with his family for lots more destressing. The warmth of family and friends can never be over estimated.
We stayed at the Bay Inn and cannot way enough good about it. It is a wonderful  inn overlooking Little Traverse Bay with an amazing view!
We woke Sunday morning to -15 degrees and the most beautiful clear sunny day.
And see now we have an exciting story!

Love your resolutions, but sorry to hear about your wild ride. The whole black ice thing is the worst part of winter driving. Glad you are OK. I want to try the laminate thing, too!! Let me know how it works for you. xo
