it’s always been one of my favorite places and by the time you read this i should be there! growing up, it was THE place to go. to cut classes (hey, i only did that a few times!). to go camping with the girls. to troll for summer parties. and best of all, to go for a romantic beach walk or bonfire with a hot date.
for years we made a pilgrimage of sorts all the way across the country in our motorhome. after spending time with family, we took off for the northern lake towns. petosky. frankfort. charlevoix. so in love with these places (in the summer, of course!)

now i usually make the trip by myself. every time i visit my family and friends in michigan i figure i’ll be able to spend some time at the lake… but somehow it rarely happens. so i decided to do things a little differently this year. instead of moving from place to place and living out of a suitcase, i’m renting a little cottage on a bluff right above the lake! that way folks can come out and visit me at “my place”. i think it’s going to be a fun time!!

p.s. not expecting much sunshine while i'm there, so my pics likely won't look like these!
