Greetings From Michigan~


~Taking A Break~


"In summer, the song sings itself."


~ William Carlos Williams ~

Greetings from Michigan. My Brian and I have taken a trip back to his childhood home and are visiting our Michigan family. It is the first time we have taken this trip alone since our honeymoon. We had such a fun drive here with cooler temps, dinner at one our favorite restaurants in Illinois and window shield talks. We had a bit of a scare with the family we left at home because a tornado watch was in the forecast last night at home. It passed over and all is well. Family, children and chickens are fine!

We are enjoying our time away and celebrating our anniversary. While we are so enjoying the romancing I am remembering all the trips we took every summer when our children were small back to visit Grandma and Grandpa. We have such fun memories of camping and spending summer vacations in Michigan. At times those long rides across three states were so much fun with every road game I could dream up, stops for McDonald's hamburgers and Denny's breakfast. Even the times we were puked on, spilled on and and wet on all now bring a smile to my face. I am so glad we have all those memories to cherish. Time has gone by so very fast.

It is a new day and My Brian and I are beginning a new chapter in life~although it is bittersweet ~we are determined to start our empty nest years enjoying every minute of the journey. This trip is just the beginning of many years to come.


I will be back soon~ hope you have a wonderful day!


Love puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the joy in a heart.

All you really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!


Spouse: someone who'll stand by you through all the trouble you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single.

James 1:17

King James Version (KJV)

 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Hi there, Happy Anniversary and cherish every moment of your trip. Being empty nesters has some adjustments, especially when you are retired, but you'll love it and then you'll have grandkids someday and they will fill your days.
Hugs, Noreen
