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:
Then, my trusty co-pilot stepped up to monitor the 4.5 hour drive:
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.
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!
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 🙂
I hope everyone had a very happy 4th of July!
