Summer Is Coming!

Greetings faithful followers!

We’ve had enough warm weather to start me thinking about some of my favorite summer trips. One of our “must do” trips every year is Mackinaw Island. It has a little bit of everything! Bridges and birds, flowers and butterfly’s, boats and bikes, carriage rides and stables, beautiful churches and scenery. I’ve put together a couple of collages to share some of our excursions to Mackinaw. (The beautiful model is my oldest grandaughter!)

I hope that if you haven’t had a chance to visit this Michigan treasure, to think about scheduling a trip this summer!

On another note, this will be the last post on Sweet and Simple Inspirations for awhile. Jen and I are working on another project that will be fun and exciting and we will tell you all about it when we return. So don’t give up on us and stay tuned while we are under a bit of construction!

Winter Wanderings

I’ve been doing a bit of traveling to doctors the last couple of weeks, and I’ve learned to keep my camera with me. There are some beautiful sights to behold in our beautiful countryside, and you never know who you’ll meet! Enjoy!

And I THINK this might be Mrs. Cardinal!! Less color. Any bird lovers out there? Am I right?!

Mrs. Cardinal

I’ve had my eye out for the snowy white owl that has been hanging around here…he continues to elude me, but this red tail hawk posed very nicely!!

What are you favorite pictures to take. I bet we have a few other shutterbugs out there! Happy shooting!
