maya goes to kindergarten

another back to school post!

maya started kindergarten this year and is the third generation in our family to attend the ann arbor public schools. so naturally a new dress was in order.   

lets talk fabric selection.

back in may we went up to heldsburg for a wedding. the wedding venue, our Airbnb, the rehearsal dinner venue, and a fabric store were all within 800 yards of one another. combine this with the fact that we referred to the groom as "sargent substance" back in college and what do you get? I'll give you a hint" it rhymes with 'funk maverick bopping'.

chilled summer vegetables

growing up in michigan this dish was known as 'corn relish' and traditionally served on thanksgiving.

however it's not really a relish, and it's definitely better suited for summer so i'm re-branding it as 'chilled summer vegtables' and my sisters will just have to deal.
