1.  A dollar well spent

There were several times this week that I only spent $1 on a purchase.  I bought a bag of peaches, pears, and plums at the farmers market for just a buck.  A high-end thrift store in Holland, MI was in the process of rotating merchandise, so all clothing was marked $1.  Also, the ticket to climb Castle Rock in St. Ignes only cost 1 dollar.

2. Visiting Instagram-worthy locations

I have been traveling a lot this week, and I have also been posting on Instagram more than ever before.  It seems that there is beauty everywhere.

3.  De Zwann

Windmill Island might be my favorite place in the whole world.

I am convinced that no matter what the weather is doing–sun, rain, snow, clouds–De Zwann windmill on Windmill Island is majestic and beautiful.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far

Beyond me.

1. Watching reruns of I Dream of Jeannie

I have no shame. If I am at home at 3 o’clock pm, I am watching Major Nelson explain weird occurrences to Dr. Bellows.

2. Finally getting a job interview

This was my reaction when I received an email asking when I could interview:

3. Land of Oz

Another item marked off the “Thirty Before Thirty” list! I will share more photos tomorrow.

Yes, I’m Still Alive :)

Yes, I’m Still Alive :)

I have tried 1,000 times to write a blog post this summer, but I have yet to do more than open a blank draft.  Anything you have read in the past two months was scheduled content,  and I can’t pinpoint the exact reason for my absence on this blog .

Yes, I work at camp 6 days a week, but I could easily find the time to type a few lines.  It is not for lack of content; I have taken photos, created videos, and written articles for camp all summer.  Spiritual dryness is not the reason either; God’s Word has become more and more precious to me every day for the past two months.  Perhaps my only excuse is that I haven’t really wanted to blog.  I have enjoyed the time away from personal social media (although I am on social media every day for my job).

Celebrating the 4th of July with some epic water balloon fun! Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸

So here I am, simply to …

  • check in.
  • let all of you know that I am still alive.
  • share some images from the summer.
  • promise that the absence won’t last forever.

I just need one more month at camp before I fully re-emerge to the outside world.
