“To begin to understand the gorgeous fever that is consciousness, we must try to understand the senses and what they can tell us about the ravishing world we have the privilege to inhabit.” ~Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses

    that first picture captured my attention! and all the rest kept my attention! what a beautiful post Melissa! Let’s see… today I am signing up for bootcamp (Groupon), trying to get Joey to do it with me, ha ha. Kaela is at 6th grade orientation, her first gig as a cheerleader, and then going boating with her friends family. Amy is still sleeping, so I’ll probably get some quilting done or work on what-to-do-with-these-scraps-projects for some fun!

      It’s such a beautiful place. One of my favorite places on Earth. We’re staying in Lutsen this year. Something a little different. I’ll let you know how it compares to Superior shores 😉
