a rainbow peeked out and bade us farewell as we left the clouds behind us and headed towards the sunny blue skies to our weekend destination camping in door county. i like to believe i’m a child of the universe and these little phenomenas are merely an intricate network of ethereal vibes within a natural cycle just waiting to be recognized, absorbed and, in return, exuded as positive spiritual energy onto those around us.
by the time we joined our party at peninsula state park there was just enough time to set up camp before being greeted with generous provisions and a roaring fire awaiting our company. great friends are truly the family you get to choose :) and i am thankful for the people i've built quality relationships with.
in a world where technology has replaced the simplest of social interactions, there’s absolutely nothing quite like unplugging and just being out in the woods under a blanket of stars and honing our skills on the fading art of conversation!
whitefish dunes and cave point were classic wisconsin sights explored… and taking a dip in lake michigan after basking under the midwest sun couldn’t have been more perfect! to this day, i am still blown away at the beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis. we are truly are blessed to be surrounded by such beauty! after all, when you've replaced the term “vacation” as a destination with moreso a state of mind... life will be much more pleasant. i promise!
the remainder of the weekend was spent exploring, enjoying and appreciating more little wonders this wisconsin peninsula has to offer. it still blows me away to realize how simple, yet breathtaking, the natural sights really are here... including its rich history of how it all came to be. it just reaffirms the fact that i truly am a wisconsinian at heart... a "lakes and trees" kinda girl; greenery over skyscrapers. sometimes :) hha!
