Winter Wonderland

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Snow has been falling all day here in Illinois.  For many, that would mean the perfect opportunity to snuggle inside a warm home.  But for me, that meant braving the weather (and the roads!) to go 'picture hunting.'  I went to one of my favorite spots - a nearby lake - to see what kind of winter wonderland I could find.  I was the only soul there (of course, because everyone else was snuggled inside their warm homes) and the quietness seemed so loud.  In fact, it was so quiet that I jumped a couple of times at the startling sound of animals popping in and out of the icy lake.  But the quietness of a snowfall brings so much serenity and peace with it, don't you agree?

Last Days of Summer

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

As we squeeze the last few days out of summer, one last visit to the beach is a must.  Most people don't think of gorgeous beaches (or any beaches at all) when they think of the Midwest, but the Great Lakes surprisingly provide miles of beautiful shoreline.  Over Labor Day weekend, I was able to spend a little time on the beaches of Chicago.  The beaches there serve as a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.  A bit of paradise along the water...
