oh, that cottage is amazing. it's beautiful. how privileged you must have felt to be a part of that! And all those kids are beautiful! Love the Jason Mraz song too. His voice is like butter!

Love, love, love that picture with all the kids together!! I have never been to Michigan but you capture the pictures and moments perfectly. I felt like I want to move up there and buy a cottage. I am glad you're home!

your pictures are intoxicating.

I'm feeling so jealous of your summer! you've captured a michigan summer so perfectly (looking down at the comments and sam just said the same thing! I'm not copying, really!)
