This beautiful picture was taken at sunset on Mille Lacs Lake, MN. It was so beautiful you couldn’t not pull over to admire it’s innate beauty. The lake was so calm and peaceful and the soft colors of the sunset were reflected seamlessly. It’s amazing how much nature calms and refreshes me.
We just finished spending the weekend with my brother and sister in-law at M’s parents’ cabin. As much time as we have actually physically spent together recently it wasn’t necessarily the type of quality time I love most. The type where it’s just the four of us with no schedule, no obligations, no chores, or anything else getting in the way. But this time we actually got to do exactly what we wanted to do. We took a trip to the beach in Duluth where we locked our love forever,
ate wild rice burgers, drank beer, watched movies, napped, and played Cath Phrase (or as we call it “The Dinasour Game”…long story), and talked and laughed. It was a weekend to help heal sorrowful hearts and to say goodbye. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it but they are moving to Virginia and leave this evening to start the 20 hour drive. We are going to miss them so much but are happy for their new adventure to start. And of course with most new beginnings it means saying goodbye to something ending. Many tears were shed especially on the ride back home but driving around Mille Lacs and witnessing this breath taking sunset it felt like the universe was saying, “everything’s alright.” And I know it will be.
