This weekend our family headed for the Northwoods of Wisconsin for a winter adventure. (Take a look at our most recent trips to the Northwoods here and here.) My husband had not graced the winter Northwoods with his presence in twenty-five years, and it was a first for the girls of our family. Although there were absolutely frigid temperatures (let’s just say we woke up to a few mornings where the temperature was -15 degrees), we didn’t let that stop us from getting out there for some outdoor winter fun.
It seems like ages since I have visited this space to share with all of you the goings on of our little family. I hope all of you had a wonderful Independence Day and are staying cool, despite the incessant heat.
This past week, we spent our days immersed in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Every time we begin our journey five and a half hours north, our stresses seem to melt along the expanse of highway. When we finally arrive in Manitowish Waters, we find ourselves already a little lighter, less burdened and receptive to the fun times that lie ahead of us. This place is our sanctuary. Our retreat. Our place of reconnecting with nature and all that this beautiful earth has to offer us.
I think this wonderful journey of ours is best shared through images that I will forever hold in my mind from this trip. Enjoy.
