This past weekend, both Tammy and I headed up north to the Wisconsin side of Lake Superior, for a couples only weekend getaway with friends at a beautiful renovated barn on the water.

We had a fabulous time, talking about everything from food to friendship, parenting and sex, and more. And of course, we had to share some of the pictures with all of you – this place was too amazing not to share.

It was kinda hard to come back to reality – though it helped to have our little loves waiting at home for us. Now, this mama needs a nap… sleep wasn’t exactly a priority while we were away.

The two pics above were snapped with my iPhone, and this sunset over driftwood is completely unedited. No editing necessary when you’ve got beauty like this to work with.
