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...

To The Sea

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a lake with my family.  We're not just talking about any old lake here - we're talking one of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan.  Lake Michigan is (of course) great and absolutely huge.  There are miles of beautiful beaches stretched along its shore.  The Midwest is not what comes to mind when thinking about beautiful beaches, but trust me, it has plenty.  We were fortunate enough to have access to a private beach.  It was so relaxing to sprawl out and have the space almost completely to ourselves.  I don't know if there is anything better than watching the crashing waves, digging your toes in the sand, having beach bonfires at night and doing it all with the people you love.  Oh, and photographing it all. :)
