Labor Day Weekend in Up North Michigan

This Labor Day Weekend was perfect. We drove up north on Friday night to my parent’s cabin near Alpena, and had just the right combination of fun, activities, relaxing, food, and sweets.

Hidden Michigan Gems You Need to Visit

This memorial day we decided to just relax at home. This summer gets so busy as we move in to June, and we wanted to enjoy our beautiful deck, take our kayaks out, and not sit in traffic for 10 hours. So far, it’s been a great decision as I’ve been able to catch up […]

Kayaking Pictures with my new Go Pro
