Hello, friends!  Thanks for coming by!

Over the weekend I hosted two long-time friends who made a 9+ hour trek to hang out and spend lots of time talking, eating good food, birthday celebrating, wiggling toes in the sand, taking photos, and soaking up all the wonderful sunshine and ionized air on the lake shore.  It was good and the weather was pure perfection.

So how about you?  Did you do anything special this past weekend?

If you missed stopping by this past week
I shared some extraordinary goodness on the blog…
