#MorningMeTime: Day F’ing 1.

Alright, Folks.  I’m back. And in the morning!?!?! Say whattttt!? Anyone who knows me, knows I am NOT a morning person.  Like, at all.  I’m actually kind of terrible at mornings.  Not to mention, I’m kind of TERRIBLE in the morning. This is how I know my husband, family and my friends love me….. they… Continue reading #MorningMeTime: Day F’ing 1.

#Mess:30 – All Together Now.

I’m lying on a beach sipping rose’. Lake Michigan is sparkling. The sun reminds me of a warm soft blanket on my bare skin. I am still on a high from my kayak trip yesterday where the land to my right seemed to open up like a curtain for the Mackinac Bridge -perfectly framed by… Continue reading #Mess:30 – All Together Now.

#Mess:30 Time.

“What IS time?” One time I sat around a campfire with some friends contemplating that question. No, we weren’t sober (Oh c’mon – I know you were thinking it!) but that’s not the point.  The point was that we were on the verge of figuring out life!  At least we thought we were. We were… Continue reading #Mess:30 Time.

#Beauty4Balance: Days 16-20. Happy Birthday To Me! 

I can bet I will never have a birthday quite like this one ever again. When I found out my friend’s bachelorette party was planned on my birthday – I had about 3 seconds where I felt sad. Couldn’t tell you why really – I guess my childhood of being an only child where I… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Days 16-20. Happy Birthday To Me!

#Beauty4Balance: Day 13. Laugh.  Post for 7.3.17.

Sometimes life plays jokes on us. Sometimes your husband loves to tease (lovingly I’m going to assume) your last #Beauty4Balance post about To Do Lists before vacation started. And as ridiculous as it is, and he is, you have a pretty good giggle about it. We all laugh. Because….well….because “poop” on a “To Do List” is… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 13.

#Beauty4Balance: Day 11. Big Mac.  Post for 7.1.17.

No.  Not the Burger.  This guy… The Mackinac Bridge. The spectacularly grand entrance-way into nature’s palace. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Miles and miles and miles of pristine forest and breathtaking Great Lakes shoreline. The kind of quiet that sounds loud. The kind of slow that makes you forget about time. The kind of peace, calm and… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 11. Big Mac.  Post for 7.1.17.

#Beauty4Balance: Day 12. Lady Lake. Post for 7.2.17.

Lake Michigan is always impressive. Her skin looks mosaic with blues and greens.  Shifting patterns with the movement of her waves. Changing hues each time the clouds catch the sun as they chase her across the sky. This year she seems exceptionally beautiful. There is a creek just to the west of where I’m standing.… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 12. Lady Lake. Post for 7.2.17.
