Wohlschlegel's Naples Maple Farm - Maple Weekend 2014

Lights on the Lake, Liverpool (Syracuse)

Warning: There are A LOT of photos here. A few weeks ago, I finally made it to Lights on the Lake. A Christmas light display in mid-January doesn’t sound very enticing, but HEY, there is exactly 11 months til Christmas 2014, so let’s just look at it like I’m thinking ahead.

Winter Shenanigans and I need your help

Sometimes I am too lazy to conjure up clever blog post titles. This is one of those times. I skipped posting last week partially due to being ill, and partially due to not really feeling like posting anything. And I really don’t have anything exciting to post this week… but it seemed quiet here so […]
