We had such a wonderful time staying up north for awhile last week, with my sister and her family and my brother and my Mom and Dad and it ended up being so relaxing and slow and calm and cozy. The second day it rained more and we literally just spent time in the lighthouse playing and reading books and drinking coffee and talking and it was really incredible to have that much time to connect with everyone. We went on walks down by Lake Superior, took naps, sat by the fire, stayed up late, rode bikes, and explored the city. The bed and breakfast that we stayed at was beyond darling! My sister and Mom planned it all out super in advance and we were just game for anything and said, "just tell us how much we owe you!" Anyways, they rented out this entire lighthouse for us all to stay in and the host made us breakfast every morning and I felt this intense amount of gratitude after each morning thinking, "Wow, so I don't have to clean this up!?" I definitely fell in love with a Bed and Breakfast type vibe and want to try one again soon! We hope to make it a yearly summer tradition with my family and sure enjoyed the togetherness up north!
Right before the trip, we bought Luella a disposable camera and she had such an amazing time capturing things that she was drawn to. They are being developed this week and I absolutely cannot wait to see the trip through her eyes!!
