I discovered this artwork on Facebook this morning.  
Everything about it speaks to me.
The words, the colors, the placement of all of the pieces.

Taking a moment...

Taking a moment to brag on my husband!  I am blessed with a loving, hardworking  man. He has worked hard all his life, working many hours with rarely time off. Thankfully Dan was able to retire in 2012.  We fulfilled our dream of buying a cottage, a quiet place to get away...a place to relax, enjoy the view. Our plan was to enjoy time together on our pontoon boat, the view, the outdoors and Dan could enjoy fishing.

Despite getting older and health issues Dan works hard trying to keep up and maintain the cottage and the property. It is a never ending process, the list of things to get done between the house and  the property is ongoing.  The days are long. It's funny when some people hear we are going to our cottage they think we are going on "vacation".  It just isn't that way.  Sorry to burst any bubbles! LOL

Yes, we are blessed, we are so very thankful for our homes. Our cottage is a year round house, not just for summer. So, what we have are two houses,  two places to call home.  With that comes two sets of everything, both the good and the bad.

Dan works so very hard at both places.  I pray that someday he will be able to sit back, relax and yes...go fishing! God bless my dear Dan, I love him so.

Yesterday my sister left, she moved away. 

 She moved across country. 
Her son, daughter in law and only grandchild live there. 
I don't blame her a bit for moving after all she's been through. 

 I am happy for her and this new season, a fresh start, putting down new roots. 
But we will all miss her and it will be so strange not to see her, not to have her close by.  I actually had to say my goodbyes to her a week ago,  because we were away the last few days
 leading up to and the day she left. 
It was weird saying goodbye and didn't seem like reality.
 I am confident when I am get home and things settle down it will sink in that she has moved
 and she is just not away on vacation. 

be blessed sister
be happy

your big sister

hello there!

OH, how I miss this place..
Mackinac Island.
My "Happy Place". 
Dan and I were there for two days in May, 
for our annual Celebrate Your Marriage Conference at the Grand Hotel. 
 I do believe I could live on Mackinac Island for several months a year, 
lets say April through October! 
But that's a dream!!  

I am thinking of getting into blogging again.
 I know I have said this before and didn't follow through. 

Blessings to all!
