Labor Day Weekend

Last year, Andrew & I were invited to stay in a cute lil' cottage in Door County. His best friend's family has owned it for something like 17 years or so. It's on Kangaroo Lake, in one of the most picturesque little towns I've been to in the Midwest. I haven't seen much of WI but between Milwaukee and Door County, I could basically move there and be happy for the rest of my life. Seriously.

Kangaroo Lake

Being from the east coast, namely Maryland and New York (read: the Bronx), I've never been camping in my life. Last summer had lots of firsts for me... I sat at my first campfire, had my first s'more (vegan, of course), canoed in a tiny lake, hiked along a cave, and so on. It was amazing. When we got another invite this year I could not contain my excitement!! Andrew has more great photos from last year & our most recent trip up on his flickr.

Then we turned into gnomes...

We were invited to go up again this coming spring and apparently it's pretty dead that time of year. I'm excited to see how it looks and feels when there aren't any tourist around. It's so damn cute there, I can't stand it. I totally felt like a little kid exploring new lands & I brought a bunch of small memories home with me.

  2. The sunsets were all SO dramatic, it was awesome! I still have most of those little nature bits, they've lasted since labor day '09 :)
