So this weekend was just a great one. It was one of those were you look back and realize how grateful you are for the family and friends that surround you and bring so much love and joy into your life.
It all started on Friday, I drove back to Cloquet to see Chris (and our families) and I stuffed invitations while he studied….so many stickers.
Then on Saturday we got up bright and early to drive to Chris’s hunting shack for “work weekend.” This was my first experience at the hunting shack and I was a little apprehensive about what all this working would look like (I’m a never-touched-a-gun type of girl). But before we get into that, on our journey north we stopped at a cute coffee shop and I had one of the best lattes in my life (pumpkin spice with half the pumpkin). With a side of a gluten-free strawberry shortcake muffin.
We made it to the shack and were greeted by much of Chris’s family and a beautiful day!
Now to the working part, I chopped wood…
And transformed into a lumberjack
Overall, it was such a fun day in the woods with Chris and his family. I even got to drive Chris’s brothers four wheeler and while it may not have been the smoothest ride, I didn’t hit any trees! I count that as a victory.
Rolling into Sunday, it was the Fall Festival at our church so we feasted on eggs, sausage, and breakfast potatoes while chatting with my family and listening to everyone else win
our the raffle prizes. Oh well….there’s always next year!
I hope you all had a great weekend.
Question of the day: What’s your favorite fall outdoor activity? Personally, I love running in the morning as it starts dipping into the 30’s! So brisk yet so wonderful!
