So, I'm just going to tell you a little story about our trip. On our way up to our cottage, we stopped in Calumet, Michigan, which is an awesome little town about 40 minutes south of Copper Harbor. They have this used bookstore that I just love, and since all three of us are bibliophiles, we stopped to peruse. Friday is apparently the day some of the local muscians get together for a little jam session so while we were slowly making our way through the stacks, we got to listen to them sing bluesy songs like "Lullaby of Birdland" with a folksy twist. It was AMAZING! Like, it's seriously one of my favorite memories of the trip- wandering through this little bookstore with my two friends (we were the only patrons), while the clerk, and a few other people sang Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn songs accompanied with strings. We didn't want to leave. But we finally figured we should move on.

When I got home, I tried to find a version of Lullaby of Birdland that sounded similar to what I heard at the bookstore in Calumet, but I couldn't find anything like it. So, here's a Nina Simone song that sums up how my weekend was instead. :)
