It has been a busy few weeks for me, meeting new people, traveling, vacation, working out, all the good stuff 🙂 I hope everyone has been well and enjoying their summer! Michigan sue got hot quick…. I am sweating in a few inexplicable places…
Anywho, every year, I spend a week at my favorite place in the world, the place I consider home; my cottage. It is not actually “my” cottage, but it is where I spent nearly every summertime moment of my childhood, it was my mom’s favorite place on the planet, and is mine as well.
So, on June 29th, I headed to the great north, which for me, looks like this:
Who wouldn’t go on vacation with their dog AND your cat?
Then, my trusty co-pilot stepped up to monitor the 4.5 hour drive:
You can almost hear him saying, “hands on 10 and 2″… thanks, dad.
Once we arrived, it was pure bliss. I burned through 4 books in about 2 days, enjoyed indescribable sunsets, ran, swam, put my brother’s girlfriend through a few nasty workouts, hiked, hung out with the puppy, watched the cat turn from a timid, scared thing into a pseudo jungle cat, met a few great people, caught up with old friends, and just enjoyed life.
Sunset on the first night. Simply amazing!
The New Presque Isle lighthouse
Sunset on night #4 before we started a bonfire.
At puppy’s favorite beach
Where we found this in the water!!! How cool is that? Love truly is all around us 🙂
One of my mom’s best friends lives up in Presque Isle, so we try to have dinner with her once whenever we are up there. This year, she pulled out her wedding album. My whole family was in the wedding party, and this is probably one of my favorite family photos ever!
Last sunset of the week 😦
It was just a really great time. And the good news is; I get to go back at the end of August and finally take Paul too my favorite place ever! I can promise more photos then 🙂
Creeper, on the way home, just sticking her face out to meow at me.
I hope everyone had a very happy 4th of July!
