So, even though our mamas told us to stay inside, we just had to check out Lake Michigan (sorry, Smother and Candy!). Nate met me after work and we took a leisurely (and cold!) stroll by the lake. It was so beautiful. A few years back I went to White Sands, New Mexico with two of my best girlfriends. Frozen, snow-covered Lake Michigan reminded me a lot of that--just the blue sky and then stark whiteness as far as you can see.
