Tuesday Travels: Back in Michigan... At Last!

I know I've been absent from the blogosphere in, well, forever, but I just have to say... I'm so eager to be back in northern Michigan again. True, I'm still hard at work, trying to wrap up my Moon Florida Keys guide and wondering what a good night's sleep used to feel like, but it's still awesome to be on Big Bear Lake again, surrounded by trees and enjoying the relative solitude.

While I admit that the trees look even better during the autumn months, I'll take what I can get, scraggly, post-winter trees and all.

I know, right?! :-)

I've been so outta the loop over the past few months that I have no idea what's going on with you, Bridget. :-( So, how goes everything?

jbchicoine said...

Getting ready to head out to NH. Been doing some querying :(
Been doing some painting :)
Been learning that using emoticons is pretty cool ;)

Laura Martone said...

Good for you, Bridget! On all counts (esp. re: emoticons)! Hehe. ;-)

How long will you be in NH? Or is this a permanent move from MI?

jbchicoine said...

A few weeks. the big move is yet to come. plenty of time to meet for lunch!

Becky said...

So glad to hear you're "back". Hopefully you'll have some time to catch your breath!!

Donna Hole said...

Beautiful pictures; I could get used to scenery like that.

Do you ever feel like staying in one place for more than three months?

Yahoo, Bridget! I'd love to have lunch with you before you head East permanently! I'll be in touch as soon as I'm done with this never-ending guide.

Hiya, Becky! Yeah, it feels good to be back in the Great Lakes State - I've even made time for a few walks in the woods. Course, I'll feel better next week, when my text and photos are in!

Oh, Donna, it IS beautiful up here. Despite my current stress, I never forget that. As for staying in one place more than three months, well, Michigan is the only one that gets us to stay a while. This year, we'll be here for five or six months - which is a long time for us!

Looks like such a beautiful place to unwind and put the finishing touches on your guide. Enjoy and don't work too hard!

Laura Martone said...

Thanks, Marguerite! Deadlines make it hard to take it easy, but I'll sure try. ;-)

Laura, hope all is going well. I haven't talked to you in forever. Glad you are settled for now...LOL

Laura Martone said...

Thanks, Jen! I hope things are going well for you, too. I can't believe how long I've been outta the loop!
