Well, we managed to get off the couch today. Just barely. But I’m so glad we did.
This is the northern edge of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, one of my favorite places. Travel east over the dunes, through a cedar swamp, across a meadow, and you will come to my parents’ garden. Growing up, this beautiful wild land was, quite literally, my front yard. Walking here brings me great peace. Watching my girls explore this place makes my heart swell.
