I've been in Michigan all week staying in the Airstream with Ian. We've developed quite a nice little way of being up here. I wake up about an hour earlier than he does, make the coffee, read for a bit (just finished this great memoir of Zimbabwe after the independence from Britain called The Last Resort. Highly recommended. Currently reading the Steve Jobs biography) and then he will get up and we walk Tasha about a mile to the beach trail, take an early morning swim and then spend the rest of the day exploring or, as its been too often, working. We are both saying to one another at least two or three times a day--"This is the best place in the world." And it is.

Ian and I attended a wedding yesterday in Harbor Springs at a beautiful resort from the 1800s called Blisswood. On the way home this evening we encountered these fields of sunflowers. Thousands and thousands and thousands of these happy yellow flowers. This photo doesn't come close to capturing the magnitude of these fields but it's a little something.
Visiting our former stomping grounds in Holland, MI this weekend for a wedding, we had a chance to catch up with one of our favorite couples, Andrew and Sarah. Andrew and Sarah had a very small wedding earlier this year. They married in a small ceremony in February surrounded by closest friends and family then jumped in their car, drove to Chicago where they dined at The Publican, still in their wedding clothes! They flew out the next morning for some much needed R and R on a sandy, sunny beach.
They were kind enough to indulge me in taking some "newlywed" shots as we strolled through Holland's historic streets this morning.
Congratulations Andrew and Sarah!
