Alpacas and their cute faces

Alpacas. They are seriously the cutest creatures and my son adores them to pieces. So I sought out the closet Alpaca farm near us and we made a day trip of it. Found a Michigan Alpaca farm 20 miles from us, took my son and my mother. My son was in heaven, he has quite a liking for them. I wish we had the extra land to have a few, maybe in a few years.

Lake Michigan Shores

I am naturally drawn to the outdoors and getting my hands dirty with the earth, its a way for me clear my mind and feel peace. One of the places I find myself visiting on a weekly basis is the lakes of Michigan. Huron lakes, is near where I live. A small 10 minute drive puts me in my happy place, where there a little people and just the sounds of the waves. I have been collecting rocks, a new hobby I have picked up. I can't wait to drill some of these piece for my jewelry shop. Wanted to share this place with you all, shouldn't we all have a place like this?

Changes are on the horizon and I am welcoming them with open arms! You ever get to a point, where you really need change and can feel a big change coming but you don't know what it is yet? Yep. That's us. When I say "us" I mean myself and my amazing son Caleb. So I purchased this home with instant equity, it was very outdated and I flipped it, renovated it and now selling it and using the proceeds left over to fully pay for a mobile home in cash. Which for me means no more mortgage payments, I am also blessed enough that there will be enough funds to also fully get out of dept. No more school loans, no more credit cards etc. This is huge guys. We are moving in 3 days, eek! I just wanted to post here. I have not been blogging as much as I would like too because I have been preparing us for a out of state move. Two days trip to get re-located from Colorado to Michigan. I will post more once we get setup!
