Isn’t it funny how we naturally assume things about people based on where they live? It always makes me laugh at the dumbfounded look I get when people find out I live in Michigan and hate snow. The snow bunnies spend winter doing things like skiing, snowmobiling, sledding and ice skating. I tend to hibernate like a bear once winter arrives. Days may pass without the mail getting checked because I simply refuse to bundle up, trek to the mail box, and unbundle just to open a pile of bills. I spend my days counting down until the spring thaw gives way to summer.
Summertime makes Michigan come alive, but I have never appreciated it more than I did during this last year with my daughter. It’s the first year I’ve seen her making the same memories I made as a kid and it just squeezes my heart.
I loved capturing this precious moment between cousins. They sat on the dock for 30 minutes whispering secrets and discussing the meaning of life.
My dad was always a huge fan of amusement parks and fair. Growing up we would drive around the state chasing the weekly fairs. This summer has been no different for the dynamic duo. From cotton candy filled days at the fair to playing eye-spy at the zoo with daddy it’s been an epic summer. Naturally, I’ve been playing photographer mom and capturing every moment.
