Ooooh. Been a while since I’ve written! Time is flying. April felt like a minute. May is nearly over it seems.
April was a hard month. We lost our dear cousin Colin and my friend Charlie, a friend from the Appalachian Trail. Lessons and sadness from both that I didn’t spend more time with them. I’ve certainly seen things through a different lens, one that shakes me to my core, that we need to let people in our lives know that we care about them. Spend time with them. Share that we love them. Because you never know…

Both of them loved nature, so being immersed in nature has been wonderful. We went on our annual mother’s day camping trip. This time to Kohler-Andrae in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Running along the waves and hearing the squeaky sand under our feet was amazing. It’s so peaceful there. It’s like a dream.

We heard sandhill cranes and loons under the tree canopies by our tent. Watched the stars in our hammocks, roasted marshmallows, and went on many hikes.

I’ve been digging new garden beds and planting new perennials. It’s really shaping up.

But I have big dreams.

The wedding is in ten-ish weeks and we’re all set. All we have to do is show up, buy ice for the beer, and party. Moonrise Kingdom meets wedding. Can’t wait!
