I am so sorry to have missed Things I Love Thursdays! Our power is out and this is the first time I was able to get online on my computer. We are staying at my parents. It was a whirlwind packing up all our food and getting the family over here but we made it! Luckily, my parents have the space to house all of us (along with a jacuzzi and a steam room that Dave and I took full advantage of after the kids went to bed!)

July 6th is a memorable date for me. Four years ago, I was a witness to an accident. It was an accident that forever changed my life. I won’t share the details but the lesson I learned was valuable: Trust your gut. When you think something is wrong, it probably is. Step up to the plate and do something for others. You never know, it could save a life.

On a positive note, here’s something fun to do with the family this month, blueberry picking!

Michigan is a great place to visit for berry picking in the summer. We live in a beautiful state!
