well, now that it's september i'm reflecting on the summer that was so summery. so, so summery indeed. i took one last trip up north two weeks ago, and it was divine. i spent five days in a cabin with two delightful friends and three sweet doggies, and i think it was the most relaxing vacation i've ever been on. we stayed at a cottage on drummond island off the eastern coast of the upper peninsula. if you seek a pleasant peninsula ain't no joke! sigh. we spent the days swimming, floating, planning meals, eating delicious food, and drinking delicious cocktails. no internet, no phones, no schedules. it was so, so good. here's to a fantastic summer!
