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 and…

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. I think my child is weird, but when I look back on the things my best friend and I…

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.…

Happy Sunday

Dear readers, Happy Sunday! Today is a good day for dreamers. The minestrone soup is in the crock pot and I am two precious hours away from a three hour kayak trip down the Whiskey River. Can't wait to grab the camera and ditch the phone in the car. Yesterday morning, I got up at the crack of dawn with a head full of thoughts, as dreamers often do. Since this is Squeak's weekend with her dad, I was able to head over…

Ms. Moxie Kayaks

Dearest readers, I've never considered kayaking a "thing". Quite frankly, kayaking never crossed my mind in general. However, as of last week, I went on my very first 1.5 hour trip and I fell madly in love. Thus, I put kayaking on the very top of my 15 Goals of Summer 2015 list. Kayaking in the Upper Peninsula is always a beautiful adventure. I took quite a few photos with my iPhone on this little adventure, but I will post…

15 Goals of Summer 2015

Dear readers, I'm big on writing out lists and goals, doing this helps me focus on the major things that I need to accomplish daily, weekly, monthly, seasonally or whatever. Every Saturday morning, I write out a "To Do List" for the weekend as I'm working on this website. Naturally, now that it's officially June, I have written out my summer goals for 2015. I've been contemplating all week what my summer goals for 2015 should be. I sat and thought about them…

Tahquamenon Falls

Dear readers, Memorial weekend my mother, brother, and myself decided the weather was gorgeous enough to have a little adventure at Tahquamenon Falls. Here are some of the photos from that beautiful five mile hike. We only hiked halfway through, so we did not get to the upper falls, but we made a promise to ourselves that this fall we will do the entire 10 mile hike in all its glory. It's so beautiful there! There are always other hikers,…
