I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

It was summertime in northern Michigan

Just got back from a relaxing, take-you-back-in-time trip to northern Michigan. Of late, I keep bombarding my posts with pictures, but they truly say it best:

Day 1: Cemetery and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore


part way up the dune climb

We may actually have some photos for the family Christmas card this year!

a little Michigan sand art

Day 2: Suttons Bay, Northport, Leelenau, and Charlevoix

selfie in front of my grandma's high school

gelato - always a delicious option

putting our feet in Suttons Bay

Cherry Republic!

sunset in Charlevoix

Day 3: Mackinac Island and Petoskey

ferry ride to Mackinac

The Grand Hotel

It probably was actually the best ice cream - delicious!

on our way to Arch Rock overlook

Arch Rock - awesome from both sides


stations of the cross at St. Anne's church

downtown Mackinac: cars prohibited, bikes optional

when on the island, fudge is a must!

ferry ride back


more family selfies

Day 4: Visiting with friends from church back home in FL and...wait for it...BENNIGAN'S!

A vacation in a vacation - pretty great if you ask me. Before the craziness and busyness of the new school year starts up, a break was necessary. Breathe in...breathe out...

For all of you wonderful teachers out there, happy back to school time! For those still on vacation, enjoy it while it lasts!
