January Thaw

Frigid temps turned into two days of 45 to 50 degree weather up here. Snow melted and we were able to go for a couple of walks with the dog. Not too excited though,temps are dropping again to single digits. Spring is still a ways away.

Welcome October

Fall has always been my  favorite time of the year. I love the Fall colors, going to the apple orchard and picking apples to make pies. Heading to the Farmers Market to pick out pumpkins and mums  to decorate the porch. I love the smells of fall burning leaves, baking pumpkin bread, diffusing cinnamon and orange oils that make my house smell amazing. I love the cool crisp evenings, bon fires, and long walks that end with some hot cocoa. It's especially beautiful this year living on the lake as the trees are begging to turn at my happy place.

My Happy Place

Wow it's been a while since I've posted anything, and so much has changed. 
Last April we moved from the hustle and bustle of the City to the peace and quiet of Lake living. We also got a puppy. This move was the best decision we have made. Since the move I am more relaxed, haven't worn makeup and realized half the stuff I thought I had to bring with me I really didn't need. 
The house was a work in progress, and it's taken 5 months to complete most of it. There is not too much left to do, some landscaping and John's dream of a larger garage.
My stress level has dropped to zero. We take relaxing boat rides,long walks, and I couldn't be happier. I'm living the dream and am truly blessed.
