gold coast


we're back safe and sound from our michigan getaway.
thank you all so so much for the well-wishing!
it was a beautiful, peaceful, fill your lungs with good air, lay back and rest kind of week away...everything a vacation should be! lots of driving, eating new foods...taking in new sights, sleeping in bunk beds, and sunburnt shoulders.
monday, max and i kicked off our vacation with a day trip to new buffalo with my amy and austin. the beaches there are as lovely as brown sugar...and the water and waves of lake michigan had us all fooled. it's as close to the ocean as a midwestern gal can get...


happy happy monday, loves!
and hello to you, august! you always seem to show up a little bit too early...but we're going to keep carrying on anyway.
i'll be back tomorrow with pictures from our fishing trip. 
here's the good news...i caught my first fish! 
the bad news? it screamed at me. hissed really. either way i turned into a real girl about it.

xoxo

  8. such great photos. This girl adores the beach and the smells of the ocean. I was also shocked when I went to Michigan how you REALLY do feel like you're at the ocean. Can't wait to hear about that crazy fish!
