Hello to anyone reading this! I have been so distracted and busy with my kiddos and summer activities that I have not had time to write. We just got back from a fun weekend getaway to the Indiana Dunes with the Niemi side of the family. It was wonderful for my boys to hang out with their Niemi cousins and for my husband and I to see his brothers and their wives, as well as my in-laws. I am proud to say that we braved the "3 Dune Challenge" and conquered it! The 3 Dune Challenge is a hike up and down three giant sand dunes (I think the tallest one was 192 feet!) with trails and big wooden stair steps through the woods. It was exhausting but fun! We also spent that day lounging on the beach and swimming in Lake Michigan.
It is hard to believe that summer vacation is coming to an end and school will be starting in just 17 days! The time really has gone by fast. I wanted to let you know that I will be posting my first ever tutorial video this week on my YouTube channel. It will be a long video that will include a combination of me talking/instructing as well as footage in fast forward mode. I wanted to try my hand at actually talking through what I do rather than just instruct through words on the screen. So stay tuned for this video sometime this week!
