Feeling and Remembering

The beach at Glen Arbor was popular in August with amazing sunsets. Being here reminded me of the very first visits to Lake Michigan as a child with my Mom and Dad and sister, Laurie. I remember the rushing waves on the shore and feeling a little scared. On this evening, as my husband and I were walking slowly in the sand, heading back to the car– a drone out of no where–buzzed above our heads. I shot this photo to capture it, though very insignificant. At that moment, a little boy on the shoreline said, “Wow! Dad, can I have that for Christmas?” — there was immediate laughter. Hopefully, one day, he will reflect, feel nostalgic, and remember the sunset. 

Feeling Blessssssssed!

Edgy Pure Michigan

We visited The Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan twice in August. The first time was on a rainy day, and the second, in the evening for the sunset. I wanted to capture the vastness of the landscape in a photo. I felt very anxious about going down an enormous sand dune because I couldn’t see the pathway, only the edge. It was a crazy thought to venture all the way to the bottom. There were people there, at the bottom, on the shoreline. The edge was the main feature in all my photos, and the people were too far away to photograph with my iPhone.

Nature’s Frame

My husband stands between the trees, and makes a perfect photo opportunity for me, as my eyes are drawn to a natural frame in the landscape. We are at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline Park in Elmira, Michigan. Of course I had to make sure a sunset photo was planned as part of the trip here. The wind and the reflections on Lake Michigan were exhilarating and breathtaking!

With over public 100,000 votes, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was named the “Most Beautiful Place in America” on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Wedding Anniversary

A glorious pink sunrise on Glen Lake by the Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan. I was happy to see another rainbow this year on our wedding anniversary. Yes, it rained on August 20, 2011 too, but they say it is supposed to bring good luck! We love the Sand dunes and the stunning panoramic views of Lake Michigan, which is one of the best in the world.


A Fun Thank You

~~~A FUN thank you card is inspired by my garden.

We’ve been really busy lately, so a quiet morning with time to write my thoughts down and do a 30 minute cardio is good. We’ve been working on selling our house, fixing another, helping my parents, and enjoying boating on Lake Michigan. The busier we are, the more I organize my time to meet my goals. I’m always learning and challenging my creative skills. I’m designing a logo for my dad and a bridal shower invite for my step daughter. Volunteering to help with floral design and setup for local event planning companies has been a blessing this Summer in providing me with new friends and contacts. All of this I am very grateful for, and thank God for my skills every day. When I have time to just sit and think about everything, a hand written note would be perfect to send to those who I appreciate. It would be easy to just send a text, but to do the unexpected is more fun, even though it may seem old-fashioned. I made this card with flowers from my backyard and created the handcrafted note. To make the letter “R” look good was fun, with a little patience and time management! I really liked the yellow and red colors on the wood table. I’ll write a note on the back to Rupali from Utsav Planners and share more about my Summer in an up coming post.

What do you think of my card?

Thanks for stopping by!

Opposites Attract

I can never get enough of the colors framed up in a sunset shot. The opposite of the dark images against the bright light inspired me. This was a beautiful evening in the Petoskey Marina on Lake Michigan.
