Lake Michigan

I hope that you all had a memorable Labor Day Weekend. My family and I ended up driving along Lake Michigan in Wisconsin. It was so out of our daily life...how wonderful it felt to wander!

My favorite part of our trip was on the day after we left my family in Chicago. We left late Saturday so we drove as far as Racine...all of us were quite sleepy so we stopped there for the night. The next morning we drove toward Lake Michigan....through the town, which has some adorable shops and came to the Lake....

It took my breath away... we immediately pulled over got out and walked on the beach. There is something magical about the Lake...the sand...the birds...the wind...the sound of the waves...it's simple beauty. It filled me with the most unbelievable joy. I am in awe of how endless it felt...all life should be like that...endless, peaceful and full of possibilities....

I could not help myself. I had to stand and let the waves gently wash over my feet...I reveled in every moment and I stood there for the longest time...

We made our way up the Lake...with a stop in Milwaukee. We had lunch in the Historic Third Ward at an outdoor cafe and then went to Anthropologie. We headed north to Cedarburg, a quaint historic village, then made our way to Sheboygan. We walked along the RiverWalk and had dinner outside at a restaurant in the Harbor looking out at Lake Michigan as the sun began to set.

Adventures are wonderful...there are so many things to discover. Not just in the places you go and the things you do...but the things you find out about yourself. I never want to stop searching for all of the treasures that life holds....

May your souls be filled with peace and your mind forever in search of adventure!
