I spent the weekend in Ann Arbor celebrating my nephew's marriage to an incredible Turkish woman. Heading north from Savannah, I was able to experience a second springtime. The apples and lilacs were blooming; bleeding heart sprouted everywhere; Solomon's seal lined walkways. I loved the textures of the sugar maples against the clapboard houses, the rain-soaked tree trunks against the sunny patches of sweet woodruff. It was an incredible weekend, all the way around!
