Wearing: Field Scout

Monday, June 13, 2011

Good morning, dahlings!
How's everyone? I'm back...fresh from a relaxing vacay with my family and some great friends, where we spent several days in a lake house near Lake Michigan.

We climbed the sand dunes, walked the pier while the emerald colored lake flirted with the children chasing each other on packed sand, sipped lattes in the warm atmosphere of Redolencia, searched for rock fossils in a stream bed, and roasted marshmallows around the fire at sunset with the breeze blowing in off Hamlin Lake.
My boys played with their air-soft guns with daddy, which they thought was the definition of coolness.

Of course, we goofed around and laughed as much as possible...we lost track of time and wandered from one fun activity to the next without thought of schedules or deadlines. We got better acquainted with the beautiful people with whom we were vacationing and ate more ice cream than should even be legal.

I feel the way I always feel when returning from vacation...a little in love with the place we visited and a little tired, but alive with a renewed enthusiasm for the tasks that lie ahead.

  1. Kristina, these photos are so beautiful! Your vacation looks and sounds like a dream. I've been so crushed with work and projects lately that I'm dying for one myself, just to decompress a little. Maybe in the next month. =)

  2. Beautiful! The outfits (especially that yellow maxi) and the vacation. Family vacations I can never get enough of. It's so fun to introduce the kids to new places. Looks like yours had a blast. 56 days is the countdown until our next adventure to a "foreign" land so it was very nice to see your lovely pictures today. :)
