Wine Tasting at Kelly's

My friend Kelly is an amazing hostess - she threw such a fun wine tasting party! I now have a nice list of wines that I like but wouldn't have known otherwise. And she didn't even mind when we dumped out the ones we didn't like. Her guests all got along really well so that was nice. I especially enjoyed talking to her sister Stacie.

Linnea in WI!

I love it that Linnea's parents have a lake house in South Central WI. Not only is a beautiful location it is also really nice to be able to see Linnea and her whole family for their yearly summer reunion.

It was so nice to see Corinne, Sophia, Theo, Mason, Clark, the parents and spend time out on the water. But my FAVORITE ever is catching up with Linnea. Her "And THEN . . ." stories are awesome. And I will say it is encouraging to also hang out with a single female - so refreshing after my case of Elijahitis.

Bike Ride with Erin and Eric

After all the storms cleared up from Friday night Erin, Eric and I headed out for a nice laid back bike ride along the path that traces the south side of Pewaukee and Nashota Lakes. Very nice!
Okay, so maybe it wasn't that laid back. Erin had to be a little dramatic after we got back!

So today it dawned on me that although I've been through the Detroit airport many times, I had never actually left it ... Until today. Super weird.

I'm not sure I'm a fan of Detroit. One of our taxi drivers was a little wacko and I am pretty sure I would not have ridden anywhere with him if my co-workers weren't with me.

I am glad to be going home!

4th of July in Tennessee

I spent the 4th of July just outside Nashville, TN at a Bible Conference. It was a lot of fun and I got to meet some great new people.

Here is Lyndsey who I stayed with (Mike, Laura, and the kids too).

Here is my whole family that was there. (Me, Dad, Katie, Mom, Mike, David, and Laura)
