Lately…

Hey friends,

It’s been 8 weeks since my last post.  (Thanks for noticing, Brian, Roger)

I (temporarily) abandoned my weekly posting schedule for two reasons, the first is so I could concentrate on selling my art.  I’ve been wanting to do this for so long.  And it’s happening!  It’s really happening!

At the moment, I have photo tiles and wood prints of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore for sale at the Falling Rock Cafe and Bookstore in Munising.

If you happen to be visiting Munising, come over to the cafe and check them out.  There is a lot of other local art too.  (And come and find me, I work there a few days a week!)

The second reason is because for the first time in a long time, I finally feel like I’m having a real summer.  And I have to enjoy every minute of it because I hear summers are pretty short around here.  ;)

Lately… Matt and I have found a quiet, sandy beach that has become our favorite, we’ve done a bit of camping and hiking, and biking too.  I’ve been photographing wildflowers (well, weeds) on my daily walks.  We’ve been sampling the beers at every brewery, of course.  I’ve been enjoying every…single…sunset. We’ve been seeing friends/family and meeting new people too. But mainly, we’ve been exploring the U.P. like crazy.  It’s been fun.

That’s what I’ve been up to lately.  How about you?  Are you enjoying your summer?  If not, there’s still time!  Get outside, have a beer, go to the beach.  I’ll do the same.
