• Apple Cider Bar

      One of my favorite fall activities is to go to the cider mill!  When I was growing up we would go to the cider mills all the time to pick apples and pumpkins.

I get so excited when fall rolls around and the cider mills open once more for the season!     Living in Minnesota there are no cider mills close to me. I mean legit cider mills where you can watch them crush the apples and make the donuts kind of place. Sure some places have a small apple orchard where they might let you…

I really love having my coffee supplies, (minus the cream) all in one spot, and that it is not on my counter tops!

I had originally intended to keep my coffee bar on the counter but once I added the sign it just felt too…
