No matter where you live in the US going to the lake during the summer is something we all have in common. Most of us know of a place where the paved roads end, the trees get taller, and the world seems to get a little quieter.
I mentioned a couples weeks ago that I was heading up to a cabin in Northern Minnesota with some old friends. It was the perfect escape and provided some much needed time to catch up and really talk to friends rather than the usual quick phone calls and text messages. For me, Northern Minnesota is about the only place that I can go to really unplug… partly because the phone reception is terrible! Most of my day job involves sitting behind a laptop. Add in blogging and I find myself on my laptop waaaay too often. I am definitely someone who has to make a conscious effort to put my electronics down, stop checking emails, etc. Just ask my husband, he’s constantly reminding me to stop looking at my phone! Oops! Are you as bad as me? If you have any tips I’d love to hear them!
With August just around the corner (I know, I know!) make sure you fit in some time for a weekend away! It worked wonders for me!

Have you tried putting a chocolate square inside the marshmallow before roasting it in the fire? I learned this trick at summer camp and it’s a fun twist on a traditional s’more. I’m such a chocolate junkie I usually put the square of chocolate in the marshmallow and have a layer of chocolate too! YOLO!
