Most Memorable Moments Of Our Minnesota North Shore Vacation

It’s not often we get to spend time as a family anymore with our son being an adult, working two jobs and usually going separate ways. However, when we do, we waste no time making memories that will surely last a lifetime.

Let’s Reminisce Again….

Every year about this time I look back through my photos and just reminisce. Winters are very long, lonely, and cold for me. I try and keep myself busy, however, winters drag on as if they last forever. My summer photos give me something to look forward to so let’s reminisce together.

I miss grilled food

This year our son’s brand new kayak will get a real taste of summer now that he is completely healed up.

Just to see green leaves and grass again would be an improvement over snow, slush and yuck that is covering everything right about now.

Happy Thanksgiving

If Thanksgiving at your house is all about the meal, which football game to watch, an area run/walk to participate in, a time to make your shopping strategy or just a day off of work. Take the time to remember what you are thankful for on this day.

I am so thankful for my son, my husband and the life we have made together. Most of all for our health and the time we all have left to share. Make every moment a memory to cherish.
