Well guys, it’s the last few days of summer and of course I’m all 😫😭 about it. I'm so grateful for the gorgeous weather we had last weekend, and that we had time to take advantage of it. Even though our boating season will (hopefully) last until mid-October, there’s no time to waste. We spent last Saturday on the water, swimming and talking and snacking until sunset, and even then it was hard to come back. At some point every time will feel like the last time — and that's a tough feeling.

It was definitely one of my favorite days of the entire summer, and I hope you guys were soaking it up as well. What moments are going down as your favorite summer memories? Let’s write a love letter to summer right here👇🏻🌊🌊🌊 and send her off with love 💛

Made an early ☀️ morning coffee ☕️ run today. Siri tricked me by taking me to “Cafe Cedarwood” inside of a marathon gas. Gas station coffee isn’t all bad, it just wasn’t what I was looking for today. So I rerouted to a bakery that wasn’t open yet, and settled for Panera Bread.

If you’ve been to Isle Royale, you know it’s a special place. The landscape is beautiful of course, but for me its remoteness is what makes it so different from other backpacking destinations. Head over to @puremichigan for a sneak peek at our recent trip to this unique National Park. I’m also working on a concept video that will be released in the spring. Until then, I’ll be daydreaming about getting back there. 🏕 .

Today I’m on a very different kind of plane, bound for Austin to attend a conference for people who travel and instagram about it. I’m looking forward to networking with like-minded content creators. #travelcon #puremichigan #findyourpark

This summer has been a constant exercise in making lemonade. A lot of plans were foiled. A lot of things went wrong. A lot of resources got wasted. I spent a good amount of time feeling helpless in the face of jobs not working out, an unexpected several months with all my earthly possessions packed away, and the planet’s worst Subaru.

BUT, this fall is shaping up to be a pretty exciting shift for myself and my career, I have a side hustle that allowed me to make decent money teaching online, and I had the (unexpected) time to take the slow routes from Montana, to West Virginia, and back to Michigan. I even got to spend a good chunk of the summer in my favorite place for the first time in years.

Summer 2018: unexpected, not all good, but with lots of silver linings and a healthy squeeze of time spent in Michigan’s upper peninsula. Not what I orders, but pretty damn good lemonade if I do say so myself 🤗

I love birds, do you love birds too? 🐦🐦🐦🐦

My mom is teaching Eloise about business today... of course that means we’re spending the morning at her shop @finestragallery. Pretty cool for baby girl to see her savvy grandma in action. Check the insta story to see @kid_bridges as shop girl in training.

You know I can’t stop into the gallery without getting 1 (or 4) new @jemmasands bracelets! Perfect with my @merhanson mug ☕️⭐️💗.

30 SECOND TIME-OUT
🔊🔊🔊
Caught the sunrise just as a lil muskrat was taking a leisurely swim on by 😻I’ve done my fair share of globetrotting, and I’m yet to find a view that I love as much as this one. Take half a minute to join me in my paradise if you like!

You got a view that nothing will ever compare to? 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
