15 Goals of Summer 2015: The Recap

  Dear readers, I want you to know that you are officially a part of history, as this is the very first "recap blog" I have ever written. On June 8th,  I posted 15 Goals of Summer 2015, today my post will be a review of how well I managed to reach those goals. Since I haven't actually monitored my success throughout the summer, I am very interested in doing this recap. Here goes nothing Moxie people! 1. Go kayaking on various…

11 Reasons to Garden with Your Child

Dear readers, Gardening is something that I've started doing since we moved into our duplex. I always dreamed of having a little garden prior, but never had the room.   The woman who lived here before me had a beautiful garden and she left me a few of her perennials, some seeds, and some tips. So this year, I planted some cucumbers, tomatoes, English Lavender, pumpkins, Sweet Basil, Rosemary, and a bucket of sunflowers. Along with the other perennials, Audrey…

Camping with my Best Friend

Dear readers, I have the best friend in the whole world. We met when we were seven. We were in the same class together. We walked home from school one day and we realized that her family had moved in to my family's old house. I'd like to think we knew it was meant to be. We did ridiculous things together as kids.

Marie, Michigan. It is small town in the middle of nowhere with nothing…

The Soo Locks With Sam

Dear readers, A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking my friend Samantha out on a date. The hospital offered it's employees a free dinner cruise with the Soo Locks Boat Tour, and I knew just who needed a night out. She's crazy, I'm crazy, it just works. If you are ever in Sault Ste. Marie,  I highly suggest you take the Soo Locks Boat Tour. Here are the beautiful photos from our night on the St. Mary's River.…

While We Were Out…

Dear readers, What a crazy few weeks it has been. With all the company visiting and fun events to attend, I decided it would be a wonderful time to take a writing vacation. However, now I'm back, and I have some updates!   1. My washing my machine (the one I just paid off) broke down, of course. The pump was broken, water leaked all over the motor, and totally destroyed it. One more thing to pay off yet again.…
