Dancing Rabbit pt. 1 - Welcome to the Milkweed Mercantile

Milkweed Mercantile
This weekend was amazing!  We hit the road Friday morning for Dancing Rabbit, an ecovillage in Northeastern Missouri.  We stayed at the Milkweed Mercantile (pictured above), a bed and breakfast that just opened this year.  After we unloaded, Alline gave us a quick overview of the neighborhood, we had a few beers and relaxed.  Alline and Kurt were wonderful hosts!  
Alline has a point...haha, ok maybe that was corny
Jessica, Tina, Ann and Bobbie try to focus in the sun
Kurt and Alline behind the counter busy with dinner prep. and serving beers ;)

A fuzzy pic, but doesn't Kurt look so happy to serve?  haha ;)

Fancy dinner arrangement
Ann and Jessica enjoying the amazing hammock chairs

Bobbie and I having an intense discussion (evidently) over beers

Credit:  Thanks to Ann for allowing me to use a few of her photos!  (The first one of the Mercantile and the last photo)

Next up: Photos from the canning seminar!

Still to come:  Dancing Rabbit tour, more book reviews and a cookbook give away, garden pics, food and projects.

FYI:  Some changes are on the way!  I'm hoping to make some long desired changes in appearance to this blog.  For awhile I considered starting a second blog for projects and inspiration, but I have decided to integrate those ideas with this blog.  Exciting for some and not to others, but you have the power to choose what you read ;)

What an awesome sounding place.

I don't think you'll find a more accomodating B & B for vegans and vegetarians--or any dietary choices. Also, they just know how to have a good time! :)

Carissa - Me too! Thanks for the award!

Susan - It is! I definitely recommend it :)

Jacklyn - This one will make you very happy. It's quite cozy and the people are great!

Bobbie - Yep, definitely good for vegans. I've heard of a few others that might be and I'm guessing many Ecovillages accommodate vegans. But the combination of visiting an Ecovillage and staying at a bed and breakfast is wonderful! And you're right, of course, they do know how to have a good time ;)

How fun! Blog changes are always nice. I like chaning my layout every few months, it's kind of like moving your furniture around to change the flow of chi! :D
