I cannot believe it is August already. Before I know it, the snow is going to fly! In just 2 short months, we could have our first snowfall here in Wisconsin, and that is scary. I love snow for Christmas, but I am truly a summer girl. Give me blue skies, a body of water, let me go barefoot, and I am happy.
Colin had the last 4 days off, and we decided to play 'tourists' where we live. We took a 1 1/2 hour boat cruise around the Chain of Lakes in King, WI. Colin told me that we have old souls. These are the types of things that we enjoy. All the others on the boat tour, minus two small children, were 55+. One man was celebrating his 91st birthday. He was so cute.
*Colin always makes fun of me for saying old people are cute, but they ARE!*
We did meet a 50-something couple on the boat that easily revealed they had not had kids because of infertility. They thought we were newlyweds (!), and of course, when we stated we've been married for 4 1/2 years, they (like everyone else in the world) had to ask if we have kids. They were kind about it all, though, and very relatable.
It's amazing, just amazing, how my eyes have opened to how many couples have had to or currently struggle with infertility.
After the boat ride, we ate at a local restaurant--Clearwater Harbor--just off the water. We just had chicken sandwiches, chive fries, and shrimp bisque, but it was so nice to be able to enjoy a day alone with nowhere to be and no chores to do.
I love these days.
