Visiting Amish country

I made a list of 33 things I want to do before I turn 33 in June 2014.  See the full list here.

25. Visit Amish country.  I have a lifelong crush on Amish culture.  Similar to my obsession with Laura Ingalls growing up.

Blame it on Lurlene McDaniel and her sad Amish cancer trilogy.  And Beverly Lewis’s entire life work, really.  I cannot handle another little girl with  bonnet strings a blowin’ getting hit by a car while she’s just manning a vegetable booth.  I mean.

Anyway.  While we were out on the East coast last month, we had business in Lancaster, so of course I got all excited and sweet talked our boss into taking the scenic route through Intercourse and Bird-in-Hand.

It’s funny; admit it.
