July 4th.

We worked ourselves to deaths the week we arrived getting unpacked and everything in it's place.  Our townhouse is 3 stories - LOTS OF STAIRS - and we were so sore we could barely walk in the mornings!  We took July 4th as a day to go check out the beaches at Presque Isle, relax, and take in the sights.  We were absolutely blown away by Lake Erie.  It is so very gorgeous!


The boys fell in love instantly and we have gone out there as often as we can since.  It's wonderful.  And literally 3 miles from our house.  Insane!


It was very cool and breezy that day and I had to get down in the sand to warm up! :)



We had such a blast!  It was a wonderful first introduction to our Great Lake!


Even when the waves crashed into our sand castle.



I'm so happy my parents were able to come along and check out the town for the first time with us.  We explored, tried out new restaurants, grocery stores ... I mean, come on.  When you move to a new town the first priority is food.  :)




This was definitely a fourth of July to remember.




I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. Wegmans is a great grocery store. We don't have them here and I miss it!

  2. Welcome to the Northeast! I've read your blog for awhile, but I can't remember how I found it. My husband grew up in Erie. You should check out Splash Lagoon and Waldemeer when you have time. Great fun for the kiddos!
