Staycation or Vacation

30 Aug

Which is it – Labor Day Weekend or Hurricane Isaac* that has caused the huge gas spike this week. I have heard both excuses all week-long. How can it be legal to have an increase of 20+ cents over /night? Who regulates this stuff!

holy hell!

Getting to my point – now that the end of summer is here what do you plan to do? Are you staying at home for a Staycation to enjoy BBQ’s and festivities around your area or do you have a trip planned out-of-town?

We have a fun festival, arts beats and eats, right at the end of our street all weekend, but I think we are going to head to the tip of the thumb (I am a michigander) to our cottage and enjoy some of the final days of warmish summer night.

Please share! What are your plans?!

*my heart goes out to everyone that was affected by Hurricane Isaac. I send prayers to them for a  fast recovery and the families that have lost everything.

30 May

Nothing is more relaxing than a fire by the water….

My little family, which consists of me, my husband and Houghtie went away for memorial weekend. It was just the three of us. We have had a rough couple months (I will post on the topic when ready) and now we are getting back to normal. This was the perfect weekend to just be together.

My mother hand painted this map as a Christmas gift for my husband.   I wish this picture did a better job showing  how beautiful it really is. The details are just amazing. We have a cottage in the tip of the thumb, so this will be beautiful to frame and hang on the wall!

Are you interested in a painting like this?
