After a long summer hiatus we’re back at the blog with updates & photos galore of Shepard’s first birthday.

Friday we head out to the Great Minnesota Get Together (aka state fair) where we’ll take in Garrison Keillor’s PHC after a trip to the Miracle of Birth Barn to see the baby animals, Sweet Martha’s for some cookies and a quick spin through the Midway where I intend to win a very large stuffed animal.

This summer was our first year participating in a CSA with Featherstone Farm. We loved the fresh veggies and splitting a “chica” share with our friends Mike & Andrea was definitely a smart move–there’s only so much bok choy a girl can cook!

After considering a run for city council in St. Louis Park, we decided instead that Colin would re-devote himself to creative writing. He’s been working on a few spec-scripts and we’ve managed to stay true to our commitment to find time for him to write every Monday for more than a month.

Soon the change of seasons will usher in bright orange leaves, weekends perfect for apple picking,  and the comfort foods of fall.

Best, M, C, Shep & the hounds
