Cyn: Good Morning, What’s it like outside?
Me: Oh My, it is lovely.
Cyn: Wait, it looks like it’s raining.
Me: I know, isn’t it beautiful?
Cyn: You are a nut.
This is a standard morning conversation we have. It isn’t me making lemonade out of lemons. It is me loving every day I live in this wonderful area (along Lake Michigan). I love the snow, the rain, the sunshine, the seasonal changes.
My day is somehow better when I start with a cup of coffee from a beach-sand mug(by Cyndi Casemier). My afternoons in the office are less dreary because I spot a handmade teal bird (by Tonya Rund). I just love Tonya Rund’s creatures.
I cannot think of a better reminder of how lucky I am to live close to Lake Michigan than seeing a Mark Mehaffey sunset painting. Art in my every day life, improves it in so many ways.
If you haven’t spread a blanket for a sunset; watched the wind bend a Lodge Pole Pine; or seen the erosion? Come visit West Michigan.
The weather is lovely outside today…I promise.
