It's already August!?!

     I can't believe it's already August!  This summer is flying by.  I've only brought fudge home twice.  Much better statistics than last summer, but last summer I was pregnant. It wouldn't be fair to track the cravings of a mommy-to-be.  Last year, I had the fun job of selling sweets in a candy shop.  I learned how to make cotton candy and spent the day surrounded by candy.  And air conditioning.  Perfect for very pregnant me. This year, my primary job is Mommy to my 3-year-old and 9-month-old daughters.
     We moved to Mackinac Island this May, and our adventure began!  We rented a storage unit and limited our island belongings to what fits on a dray.  Not fun.  But a few months later we're still here.  Still figuring out, but here nonetheless.  
     Sometimes I receive the question, do you work here or live here? ...Yes.  And it's looking like we're going to stay through this winter.  I realize there are a few hundred people who survive Mackinac Island winters every year.  But I'm nervous; I respect these true, amazing year-rounders.
But for now it's still summer, and I mean to enjoy it!

  1. I am loving your blog! I visited Mackinac every summer when I was younger, and my family and I just went back this October. Can I ask what your husband does? I think it'd be so neat to experience living on the island, but I don't know what I'd do for a living!
