This weekend Cree and I went camping at Ludington State Park. I love Michigan!! It was just what we needed. Fresh air, huge waves, light houses, sand dunes, foil dinners, s'mores,  and 10 hours of sleep! It's amazing how relaxed we were...being away from our computers was just what the doctor ordered.

And...I think Cree is the cutest and sweetest camping companion a girl could ask for.

PS. I did a post for Kinfolk last week featuring Kjrsten Madsen's British Traditions.

  2. Where did you get the 8mm video camera? I was going to buy one at a vintage shop but was unsure about developing and buying film. Have you found it easy to ffind film and developers or are you purchasing and sending it away via online sites?

  12. Was it chilly? That would be the only thing holding me back from fall camping.

    Also, you two are way better dressed camping than I am. I am all about the sweatpants + multiple hoodies!
