New chapter in our lives~Applesauce Inn Bed & Breakfast

Gary outside our new home!
Applesauce Inn Bed & Breakfast website
Well we made it!  After much praying, many second thoughts, driving cross country with a huge truck and 2 cats, and did I mention much PRAYING??? We are finally the new owners of the Applesauce Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bellaire, Mi.  We have been unpacking, entertaining guests, watching the leaves change, been tourists, checked out the local eateries, and generally just getting to know the place!

Our arrival~loaded to the max!
It is soooooo beautiful here!  We have been truly blessed!  I am still going to try and continue my Etsy jewelry shop, once Gary sets up my workstation!  He has been busy getting our basement cleaned and ready for winter storage!  We have already met some awesome folks here.  Wendy and Dave the former Innkeepers are just amazing!  The home they created out of the B&B is just beautiful!  We are both so very happy!!!

I will be setting up a separate blog for the bed and breakfast in the next several weeks!  But I wanted to let everyone know what was going on!  I have had many folks checking in and I really appreciate all the support even though I have been out of the loop the last several weeks! 
Northwestern Michigan is a must destination!  We have lakes, we have streams, we have skiing, it really is a sportsmen paradise.

I have been having a blast with my camera!  I took all the shots here, and there are a ton more!   I will post more in my next blog!!
Thank you for stopping by!
