It is a wonderful time to visit our quaint historic town of Kimmswick! While you’re visiting, stop by and see our part of the Cakeway to the West. I’m not talking about our bakery, which is filled with many Read More…

Finally, spring has arrived! Doesn’t it put a smile on your face and a “spring” in your step? We will soon be as busy as bees here in Kimmswick, and I find the change in seasons a wonderful time to stop and reflect upon the goodness of life.

If we had any doubt that winter was here, well, we are no longer wondering.  Last week we were treated to mountains of snow and temperatures that dipped way down into the negative zone.
