Birthday Getaway

Michael and I took a trip up to Bird in Hand, PA. to visit a Amish area for my birthday. We had a wonderful visit there and it was such a beautiful time of the year to visit! I love being around the Amish and they are so friendly and helpful. We bought honey, cheese and produce etc. I enjoyed going into Amish homes, looking at their quilts and seeing their gardens. They're amazing!

We found a great store run by the Amish called BB's. It's a discount store with "bents, bumps and a bunch of bargains". I could not believe the incredible prices. I would love to go there again!

Hi Jen, Yes, I've ordered some from Rod and Staff and I have a couple of other good Amish cookboooks. I like the Bible verses they include and the poems and all.
I would love to go to an Amish home for dinner sometime (some Amish provide this for a small cost) An excellent meal and experience I'm sure!
