Did you miss me? The family and I popped out for a bit of a break last week.
Though as you can see we did have a bit of excitement before we left.....
We still have no phone service.
We went up the Lake coast to the town's of New Buffalo and South Haven, Michigan for a few days.
We stayed at our friends little cottage in the woods. Now I want a little cottage in the woods. Every night after the kids were in bed, we just sat up with the windows open listening to the frogs and crickets and read books. At one point it was pitch black out and there was a weird noise a few feet from our open window. We were a bit.. what was that?! Being the suburbanites we are, we had to check it out and a deer was hanging out about 10 feet from the window just doing his thing.
We hit the beach and were completely blessed with amazing weather and somewhat calm waters. Though my little one fought the waves a few times and the waves won.
My inner geek came out when I started finding these heart rocks... then I started collecting other rocks with tons of other ideas. Next thing you know, we have lugged about 40 pounds of rocks back.
We had lots of ice cream.
and hubby indulged me by driving me around while I took pictures of cool old buildings. Isn't he the best?
We went to South Haven one day. It was beautiful. I hinted to my hubby that we should go back there, just the two of us.
In this one store I really got a kick out of the fact I knew a bunch of people on this book shelf. There was Fifi's book, and the Giannetti's new book too.
and I had to have a shave ice on the beach. I swear that other one is not mine.
After about 4 days with the kids in the car I was ready to stay here. :)
Let's just say I've found that girl's can duke it out pretty good even when they are strapped in seat belts.
We had a blast, Michigan is beautiful, Tim Allen was right. :)
It's good to be home.
I've been getting quite a few questions about
the Country Living photo shoot and I am going to answer them in my next post, so if you have one, ask away!
