I keep pinching myself on how the past couple of years have blown every dream and goal I’ve had out of the water. Yes, there have been struggles and pain...but as I reflect upon my 20’s and life leading up to 30, I gotta say; I’m happy, mentally and physically healthy, and have a rock solid family which includes the best wife, in-laws, extended family and friends. I’m feeling blessed, lucky, and grateful. Thank you to my wonderful wife for this classic timepiece on a milestone birthday. I love you. • • • • #birthday #30 #thisis30 #wee#weekendway #weekend #northernmichigan #shinola #wat#watchinstagram #watch #milestone #happybirthday #life #blogger #lgbt #mylife #reallife #pisces

• There’s just something about them I can’t explain 🌉🚩 - - - You know the feeling Cold Crisp Silence Infinity as I step up on the sheet of ice staring out over the frozen chucks of water - - - I’ve seen Michigan and I’ve seen Lighthouses but I’ve never seen this intense combination of the two in my life - - - I’m not a huge fan of the the cold I’m a summer sun girl through and through but the more I explore myself and the world around me the more I learn to love all the incredible variations of what she has to offer 😉 - - - the family of three I do not know but when they walked across the ice toward the lighthouse well I just had to 📷

Big thanks to @jsw@jswanagon01 👊👊#Repost with @Repostlyapp @jswanagon01 Got to have a little fun today playing out in the woods. Working on a short video review of the Lester River Bushcraft Northwoods Poncho for S.W.A.T. Magazine. I decided that it would only be appropriate to film the review of the Northwoods Poncho in the beautiful Northwoods of Michigan. Keep watching for S.W.A.T. to release the final video, I’ll make sure to post details. . . @lesterriverbushcraft @swat_magazine #swatmagazine #lesterriverbushcraft #poncho #ponchos #wool #woolponcho #bushcraft #northernmichigan #michiganwoods #writersofinstagram #writersofig #geartesting #camping #campinglife
