We happened upon the sweetest Hoedown in a nearby town. As a Los Angeles native, my heart always skips a beat when I find myself in the middle of old fashioned, middle American goodness. I love antique shows, apple pies, and homemade butter. It’s so far from what I grew up with! While I treasure my big city childhood, I always yearned for a little slice of Little House on the Prairie in my life. Anyone else?
There were horses, apple cider crushing and squeezing, ice cream making, fiddling, and a BBQ with gorgeous QUILTS as tablecloths. Actual quilts…the kind that would take me months to make and that I’d covet as a duvet…sat under our burgers, within arms reach of our ketchup stained munchkins. Amazing.
