Hello from the Upper Peninsula! The air is cool, crisp and fresh, unlike back home in steamy Chicago!
I grew up visiting the Northwoods once every summer, as did Mark. Little did we know we were vacationing about an hour from each other for most of our lives! My family stopped coming up here a few years ago, but Mark’s family continues the tradition, and I’m so happy to have been able to join them these last few summers. Pretty sure this is one of the most beautiful and relaxing places in the midwest.
We’ve been on long walks, enjoyed a glass of wine or three by the fire, seen some deer and even on one unfortunate occasion….a bat. And it’s only Monday! Oh, did I mention the rodeo?! Yesterday we caught the last day of the rodeo before it packed up and left town (more on that tomorrow!). Of course, I had to wear something appropriate for my first rodeo experience. A vintage square dancing skirt and my Texan cowgirl boots did just the trick.
Wearing: Top: H&M, Skirt: Vintage (thrifted), Scarf worn as a belt: Mo Vintage, Boots: New Bohemia in Austin, TX
