Doddridge Chapel and Cemetery in Centerville, Indiana

little Indiana and family have been making good use of the gorgeous weather! Browse through a very large antique mall in a tiny small town, revisit a unique antiques and more shop in yet another small town, and tromp through a humongous cemetery next to a very old chapel (that has a great history). It's all in a week's work for little Indiana! There was still time to share a zucchini bread recipe that you'll love if you, like me, prefer to have non-chunky bread. Read More »
