One of the pleasures of blogging is having the opportunity to meet up with bloggers you've known online for years.
This happened with me this week when Annie of Annie Go Lightly and her husband,
Don, came through Lansing.
They couldn't help the weather, which slowed down some of the activities we might have engaged in throughout their stay, but we made the best of it!
Annie and Don had been doing mission work for the Catholic church in the past months,
so one of our stops was Lansing's St. Mary's.
The church is rather old but was remodeled in the 1960s and has a more contemporary look. Still, the stained glass dazzles.
And the statuary and carvings are striking. I particularly liked this one.
We drove past my old school, the Grand River (which cuts through town), the capitol --
and then headed to DeWitt to have pie at Sweetie-licious Bakery and Cafe.
We all loved the pie -- and Don also loved the cherry cupcake! Isn't it cute?
Everything about this spot is cute. And mighty tasty, too!
(And yes, they mail order, too!)
And after all, doesn't pie fix anything? Even the rain?
Well, our rain held up, but next post join us on another round of the Lansing tour!
