What a week! Sunday was so beautiful here, and Lake Michigan was warm and perfect for swimming. I just keep finding more and more that I like about this place! C, K, a friend from out of state, and I went to pick up my sister Sarah (Sar) in the evening and then we all went out to dinner. Almost all week there’s been something going on and I think it’s been a nice vacation for Sar. There had been longtime plans to watch “Life Is Beautiful” while Sar was here, so Monday night we all shared a simple Italian themed dinner with Spancy Bakes artisan bread, fresh basil and tomatoes from the farm, mozzarella cheese, and a big salad. Then there was raw vanilla ice cream over black coffee while we watched the film. It was all so good! Everyday I’m thankful to be here. To be a part of the lives of the people who live here, and to be in the midst of God’s creation on a daily basis. I only hope to grow in the Lord and praise Him for the trials and blessings alike. I think this is just the beginning of a new and exciting adventure : )

  1. One thing I look forward to the most during the summer months. .. is the chance to see the greatest Painter paint his heart every time the sun goes down.
    the clouds,
    Nature’s color palette,
    trying to replicate it on my own canvas,
    dinner outside on the porch, surrounded by herbs, tomatoes and flowers.

    cheers and blessings!
