Hopping with Moda!

Hello Sunshine, hope you had a good sleep, we have a busy day ahead! Edyta.

One of your stops today on the Moda Blog Hop is my hometown, Marshall MI. It is a small historic town in south central Michigan with a population of just over 7000 and this is a perfect time of the year to visit.

For a small town it is a busy place with lots to do; we have a home tour, garden tour, two quilt shows, car cruise, parades, county fair, farmers market, and the list goes on and on!

 In the center of town there is a fountain and many of the events happen around it.

I love walking downtown, there are many fun little shops to visit and enjoy.

One of my favorite stops is Louie’s Bakery, their chocolate drops are irresistible!

Once I have my sugar fix, it’s a quick stroll over to Grannies Attic, I always seem to find something nice here even though Michael said that I can’t bring anything larger than me home from there anymore…

Mike and I will be married for 20 years soon and we love adventure (yes that’s us skiing on our wedding day), we have moved 7 times and really enjoyed living here for the past 10 years. It’s the unexpected events that really steal my heart and make me appreciate even more where we live.

This summer for a week our skies were filled with color from hot air balloons.

There is something magical about watching these giants so gracefully float through the air.

We witnesses them taking off.

And were even lucky enough to have a few of them land in our backyard next to my studio!

Teams from all over the world compete in this Hot Air Balloon Championship.

This was truly and amazing event to witness, the colors, the size, and even the opportunity to meet the team members made this a memorable summer experience.
