Last week, Sean and I took a few days off from work and headed North to the Upper Penninsula. Sean’s mom owns an incredible piece of property: the Northern Walkabout; that will soon host their amazing Cord Wood home. But, as with any powerful dream, there is a lot of work required to make it a reality. Their positive energy and work ethic, however, are encouraging and contagious, and after just one week of work, it’s clear to see this land is their home, whether their house is completed or not. It was so much fun to be a pat of the process, even if the mosquitoes ate me alive. It took three days, three men and two tough women for the foundations and barriers of the house to come together. By the time I arrived on Wednesday afternoon, there was already a solid structure in tact. I couldn’t believe that just days prior all there had been was a mound of dirt.
It had been years and years since I’d visited the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. We are certainly fortunate to be surrounded with such amazing land. I’ll be sure to post some more pictures I took later on this week! As for now, we’re happy to be home and getting excited to head back Up North soon to spend some leisure time at the Northern Walkabout.
Finally, Friday. Time to calm down, sit down and have some time with Sean!
Accepting that yes, there is no more snow in the forecast.
Enjoying my last week at 26 years old.
Sitting on a friend’s porch and laughing harder than I have in a while.
Giving extra hugs in the afternoon.
Drinking coffee late into the afternoon.
Catching up with a great friend on his awesome blog.
Wanting to be home rather than out.
Indulging in asparagus for lunch and dinner.
Reading on the couch each night.

Hope yours is filled with excitement, too.
