Soaking Up Summer!

Soaking Up Summer!

Soaking Up SummerWow! I can’t believe it’s August already! Ireland and I decided we needed some “girl time”! So, we left the boys and headed up to the cottage in Michigan. Levi, the dog, begged to come along too. How could we say no? We’ve been doing a lot of nothing and it’s been wonderful! We start out the day at our favorite little coffee place in downtown Harbor Springs. I get my usual latte, Ireland gets hot cocoa and a doughnut. Levi comes too! Then, it’s beach time! We pack up sandwiches and off we go. I’m about to finish a great book. Now, I need to find another one. Any suggestions?

At night, it’s quiet dinners on the porch, maybe a board game. We have no TV up here. Love it! Life just tends to be a little slower at the cottage. We never know what the day will bring. No set plans. I think we’ll do a little shopping and hit the farmers market later this week. It’s just what we needed! It really is all about the little things! We’re both lovin’ every minute of it! What’s been your favorite part of summer? Have you cooked up any good summer memories? Please share!

    It’s wonderful that you could take Levi with you. We have 4 Dogs and it’s hard to take a trip with. But that’s ok. We ha ve lots of room to entertain them. I’ve tried some easy recipes and love them. Do you have a cookbook I could buy. I dont eat sugar, flour or starches. Any recipes you could suggest?

    I miss the old boy. Nothing like coming home at the end of a not so great day, and the old boy greets you at the door. He does not know what your day was like he is just happy to see you. The kindness of an animal. Love u Levi!
