August has been a month of traveling. It has been so fun exploring new places and spending time with family. I’m sad to see the summer end.

Flower Arranging


One of my favorite hobbies is flower arranging. I loving picking out flowers and turning them into something beautiful. This past weekend I went to California and had a fanatic time arranging flowers with my sister and sister in law. 

Kalan & Mikey: Danville CA

It was fun being able to take a few pictures of these newlyweds in California last weekend. 

Recent Read: The Silver Star


Jeannette Walls is one of my favorite authors. The Silver Star is fiction and therefore little different than her first two books (“The Glass Castle” & “Half Broke Horses”). I enjoyed this book, because it was well written and did not take much effort to read. The book flowed smoothly and the characters were well developed and strong. By the end of book I was attached to most of the characters. I felt their frustration, sadness, and excitement.  

If you liked the Glass Castle you will love this book as well.  



Me and Mr. took a quick day trip to St. Joseph Island in Canada. The quickest way for us to get there was via boat. We arrived around lunch time and spent the afternoon looking at little shops, eating lunch, and enjoying the most incredible ice cream. If you ever get a chance to go to St. Joseph island I recommend stopping by Camille’s Cafe for lunch and getting ice cream at The Sugar Shack. 

Neebish Island


Me and Mr. spent a few days up in Neebish Island. Mr.’s grandparents have a cabin right on the water and were kind enough to let us stay with them. We had no access to phone or email, which made for a very relaxing time. I could not have asked for a more perfect vacation. I’m already looking forward to our next stay!  



Ohio is always treat to visit. It has been a vacation being out of the city and enjoying the small town life.

Tomatos, Corn, Squash, Onion, Cucumber, Broccoli, Carrots, Brussels Sprouts, Cantaloupe, Bell Pepper and Green Beens are all a part of Mr’s parent’s garden. I am envous of all the fresh produce they have and also loved being able to pick it when visiting. I can only dream to have a garden like theirs someday.

Boating with Mr.’s family is always a lot of fun. I love being on the water during the warm summer days. Its great to be back in Ohio.

Z’s Bees


The honey making process is something incredible. Mr’s family owns a couple of beehives and it was a treat being able to watch the process in action.
