Dear Michigan cherries,
I have been wanting to introduce you to my friend milkshake for a very long time now. You are so sweet – I knew you guys would hit it off right away! It now looks like you will be lifelong friends.
Dear Michigan summer,
You make me happy. Don’t let autumn boss you around this year, kay? You can stay longer than 3 weeks.
Dear Michigan mosquitoes,
You teach me many things – mostly patience; but also how to wave, smack, and swish with one hand while picking raspberries with the other.
Dear Mr. Blender,
We’ve spent a lot of time together over the past few years. Thank you for being a faithful friend. I am always impressed with how you can take a handful of unrelated ingredients and produce a luscious sauce, a creamy salad dressing, or a sweet smoothie. Thank you for this delicious cherry milkshake.
Dear bloggy friends,
What’s your favorite part about summer?
