Sitting on the deck in the quiet of the morning with Flyboy.
We sit close, drinking our coffee looking over the grocery ad.
Doesn't sound romatic?
In today's world full of busy schedules and chaos, its impotant to slow down and enjoy the little things.
The smell of the coffee, sounds of nature, the heat of your honey's body next to yours...definately things to take time for.
The day started with Grandma Barb making eggs and bacon for breakfast. Thd hlorious smell of bacon brought back wonderful memories from childhood.
Everyone packed and said their goodbyes then headed out. Flyboy Jr, leaft first, going north to Traverse City. Eldest followed us as far as Saginaw to make sure we didn't get another flat on the boat trailer.
When going "up north" in Michigan timing has to be just right when driving south at the end of a holiday weekend.
Despite a couple slow-downs, the traffic flowed well. Flyboy & I held hands and listened to music.
Youngest mastered napping.

I love doing yoga near water. I feel like I absorb the goodness of nature into not only my body but also my soul.
Morning with the family is entertaining.
My new daughter and her mom took me on an adveture to a local craft show.
We ran into friends from home! What a surprise!
Yes, we left with lots of amazing things. (Tip: ladies, buy the guy folk some goodies so they'd overlook our purchases.)
When "up north" gathering around the bonfire is mandatory.
The best way to end the day with family around a bonfire.

Road trip! The decision to "do something" was made the last minute. Some think "couple time" is the most romantic, but I feel so much love when the entire family is together.
Flyboy, I and the Youngest hooked up the boat and headed "up north". (Michiganders will understand the term.)
On th way up, we had a tire issue on the boat trailer. Flyboy & Youngest fixed it and then we were back on the road.
When we arrived we were greeted by Oldest & his wife, along with her parents. DIL's grandparents arrived after us.

A tad chilly this morning but perfect for some "me time".
From my yoga mat I noticed the way sunlight tickled the tree tops. In today's busy world its important to take time to find little things that bring joy.
Throughout your day, if you see something that warms your heart, stop and take a moment to appreciate it.

It's blueberry season here in Michigan. My town is getting ready to celebrate the 50th Blueberry Festival next week.
I'm making zucchini bread using Grandma's recipe but putting a spin on it by tossing in some blueberries.
After the insane day I had, a glass of wine will be perfect compliment to my baking activity.
I pull a bottle of the rack. White wine is usually served cold. No problem. I simply toss in some frozen blueberries and I'm good to go.
