I feel the city too much these days.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Minneapolis, but there’s something rewarding and fruitful about getting away…and not to just another house away from the city, but to a place where you can’t see or hear anyone.  Only you, your thoughts and God.  We (my fam) packed up […]

  • Sarah - They turned out beautiful! I been checking the blog daily waiting to see them. What a perfect day to take pictures!ReplyCancel

  • Janis - Viewing these pictures brought tears to my eyes. I’ve never seen the “shack” more beautiful than this. You captured time standing still and created a brand new memory for me. It’s difficult to pick a favorite and I never thought an outhouse could look beautiful! Mom or Great Donna, as her great-granddaughter would say, sitting in the chair at the end of the pier? My favorite.ReplyCancel

    These pictures are beautiful. I married into the shack and it is one of my most favorite places on earth. I’m so sad every time I leave the place. It has such spiritual energy. Mike and I spent many, many weekends there when the boys where little. In fact Nick was only three weeks old on his first weekend at the shack (not that I would recommend it). Mike and the boys built the tree fort, it has seen better days.
    I sincerely hope the shack continues to raise more and more families, it is a great place to grow.
    I hope to meet you and your family at the shack soon.ReplyCancel
