Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

A Few of My Favorites

This week is post-holiday week and it is difficult not be sad. The snow has fallen and I do believe it is here to stay. Last week, the snow was a delight. Now, it is just cold and windy.

So, I will stay indoors today and dwell in the pictures from our trip last week which was magical, blissful and so relaxing.

Today, I share a few of my favorite images from our trip to Minnesota's North Shore. Later, I will post more details about our activities. Please stop again if you have the time!

Thanksgiving evening was spent with wine and jigsaw puzzle.

The Gales of November sent us a storm that got the waves crashing all night long. Although the sun set early, the sound of the waves kept us company and imagining the fury was not difficult.

The day before we had gone on a hike. We climbed Oberg Mountain and view from the top was beautiful.

The view was amazing and yet, I could sit and look at these two all day and be content. They both make me so happy! Even if they do have matching stink eyes.

Another day was spent in Grand Marais where it was sunny, but bitterly cold.

We have taken this trip many times before. This year traveling together as a family made for a very different sort of trip. In so many way, it was so much better as a family. We had many plans and yet managed to be spontaneous. The Baby Lotus Bud slowed us down in the most perfect way.

I can't remember a vacation that I enjoyed more than the one we had last week!

In addition to dwelling in the memories of our trip, I will travel the world today through Communal Global. It warms me to see all the goodness that's out there!
