Come walk with me

Along the sea

Where dusk sits on the land

And search with me

For shells are free,

And treasures hide in sand.

Saugatuck Weekend

Now this was one good key lime martini. As I savored this martini I dreamt I was in Key West. We went to the white house bar and bistro and had a rockin time. This place is known for their key lime martinis and let me tell you the only thing missing that night was a little sand in my flip flops! We heard a awesome blues band who did a cover from a Rob Thomas/Santana song and I even tried to dance a little salsa to it! Now Russ kept saying to me "baby steps" "baby steps" sorry a little inside joke LOL...

We had so much fun that night I didn't want the night to end. This weekend in Sauguatuck was just the lift my spirits needed! I can't wait for our trip back to Saugatuck this summer. We had awesome weather, delicous food and cocktails and lots of great laughs, Thanks Russ & Stef for being such awesome friends you guys are too much fun! So we ended our Saugatuck weekend by going down to Oval Beach, it felt so good just being on the beach just tinkering around looking for what the waves had washed up this winter,we even found some sea glass,that was super cool! I just love looking for little treasures the lake and the ocean for that matter offer our curious little minds. With each little gem you pick up off the beach one can only imagine how it found it's way to our discovery. I hope you get to experience the beach this summer. The beach is forever changing it always has something new to offer our hearts and souls you just have to be open to it's all encomposing beauty! Have a great Spring ... Be free to Dream !

This is one great place .... check it out Wild Dog Grille

Welcome First Day of Spring !

Finally .... It is official Spring has arrived! now it was a little chilly today but...hopefully mother nature will be kind to us from here on out. So get out in your yard and do some spring exploring you may just find that sleepy little daffodil waking up. It is always exciting to clear away all the leaf litter only to find lots of things going on in your garden. It always amazes me how winter can be so harsh but somehow spring finds it's lost way again only to lift our mind and spirits. Spring is so exciting I like to call it the re birthing of the planet. So get outdoors this weekend and do some exploring maybe take a little hike or walk your dog, breathing in the fresh spring air and soaking up the sunshine really lifts your spirits. Enjoy your spring weekend , I am off to do a little celebrating the arrival of spring myself. I can't wait to see the that first painted lady flutter through my yard!
