It was another relaxing morning. I naturally woke up at 6:30 am and noticed it was sunrise time. I walked out to the sunroom attached to the bedroom and there it was! I don’t remember the last time I was able to see the sunrise. I have been up at this hour (or earlier) but… Continue reading Thousand Islands Cottage Trip: Day 3 (Wolfe-Island)

We decided to… Continue reading I Tried $40+ Cereal. Was It Worth It?
