We went glamping!

Baby Jo fearlessly climbs

Do you have a family camping or vacation tradition? Hubster’s family has set aside one week every summer for nearly 30 years to go camping as an extended family. The dedication they all have to it is pretty awesome, and I’m saying that as someone who loathes camping. There were two years that I enjoyed a few days to myself while Hubster went with one, then two kids. It was a nice solace for me before he started ResLife fall training. This year we decided to go as a family. We went glamping!

Summer in Door County

Summer in Door County

Wine, beaches, quaint towns, orchards and cherries…summer in Door County allows us to unplug and welcome a slower pace.

We chose a quaint cottage on the shore of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, for this year’s summer vacation. The first thing I noticed when we arrived to our cottage was the sound of the waves lapping against the rocky shore.

Our Summer Vacation on Madeline Island

Adventure + Relaxation: Summer Vacation on Madeline Island

One of the most important things that Hubster and I do for our relationship each year is schedule a summer vacation. With two small children and his long work hours, we have decided that we need to get away as a couple every year to reconnect. On our first wedding anniversary, we traveled to Bayfield, Wisconsin, for a few days and took the ferry to Madeline Island. We rented bicycles for half the day and mopeds for the other half. We hiked at Big Bay State Park. We fell in love. We vowed to come back for a vacation on Madeline Island.

Living in a Daydream

The past couple days, I’ve been daydreaming about being somewhere peaceful and warm.  It might have something to do with the winter dragging on for what seems like forever (it always feels like forever by the time March rolls around); it might have to do with becoming larger and more pregnant as each day progresses; or it might be due to feeling sick and wanting to teleport elsewhere.  Whatever it is, I’ve been thinking a lot about the beach, kayaking and relaxing to the sound of waves crashing against the shore.
