Lake Kabetogama 2013







We spent our labor day weekend on Lake Kabetogama (near the Canadian border) with the most wonderfully inspiring group of friends.  Lee and I are the only ones not yet married in the group and so we always enjoy hanging with "the married crew" - talking wedding and marriage and just soaking in all of their advice. We feel so blessed to have been given friends with genuinely, real hearts - a rarity these days.   It was the most relaxing end-of-summer (tear) 4 day long party & we are so thankful to Jared & Beth for the invite!  

P.S. The first picture is a polaroid from Beth's new Instax 210 - a gift I would not mind receiving in the near future ;)

MN State Fair 2013



A very unexpected highlight of our summer was making it on our favorite news channel, KARE 11's live broadcast during the MN state fair. Lee & I were first time fair goers and were chosen to sit in the "best seats in the barn" by Julie and Randy because 1) it was my birthday the day before and 2) I am a big mouth - poor lee. We were interviewed and the whole sha-bang and given all of the fair food from the segment to taste test...mini donut beer & chocolate covered cheese curds - both very interesting and something we would never have tried that night had it not been FREE! Thank you, KARE 11 for making our first trip to the fair a tough one to beat ;)
