What Anniversary?

Do you know how terrible of a human being I feel when I finally return to my wordpress blog and the first notification I receive is a “Happy Anniversary!” message from wordpress itself. I apologize wordpress that i’ve been neglecting you all this time and come back on the day of our anniversary. This blog post goes out to you…

My mother’s friends own an old country Inn located in West Dover, Vermont. I have spent many a-holidays there, eating up all the scrumptious food they cooked, and being enrobed by their love and hospitality. They have been there many years now and are interested in selling the place. The Inn will be sold by an essay contest with a registration fee of $100. Isn’t that insane? All anyone has to do in order to participate is construct an essay describing why you would like to own and operate your own inn! So check it out it out, the name of your future Vermont property could be the Deerfield Valley Inn.

Anyways, I am not here just to brag about this inn for sale, I am also going to provide a Rhubarb Loaf Recipe in which one of the owners provided me.
