Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

My husband and I really enjoyed our sneak peek of the Maker Faire yesterday. The highlight for my husband, though, was being able to go behind the scenes in the Restoration Room at The Henry Ford.

Being a carpenter, he was like a kid in a candy store. Small moments like that make this blogging thing pretty cool.
