I love the feeling of boarding on an airplane, except of course when boarding outside in the snow, in 2 degrees Farenheight.

I was editing a few beach pictures the other day.  We’d taken a mini staycation for Labor Day weekend to South Haven, MI.  We live about 45 minutes away from one of the most beautiful shorelines in the States: Lake Michigan on the Michigan side.  The beauty of this particular giant body of water is […]
