Small town Ice Cream stand

Nothing is better then a local ice cream shop. Nothing! John has been going to the Pied Piper in Huron since he was little and he still enjoys going there all the time. I love it because they have sugar free yogurt! It’s a nice little treat for me every once in a while! Love being part of this Great Lake town!

Hello October!

I am very blessed to live in such a beautiful suburb in northern Ohio. I of course would prefer to live in a small town or village on the lake, but this will do for now 😉!

This weekend is their fall festival so all hands were on deck as they prepared the city. My nanny kids and i had fun walking around, taking photos, and just enjoying the scenery on this beautiful day!

Downtown Vermilion, Ohio

Another day date after a morning of fishing. We love to walk downtown Vermilion, look in store windows and people watch. Saturdays they have their outdoor market and it attracts a lot of tourists. The vermilion yacht club pool was filled with everyone trying to cool off. It was 90° outside but no one cared as they were all trying to enjoy as much summer as they could.

Monroe decorated the windows with vintage Vermilion High School memorabilia!

Day Date at the Islands

We started the day with a boat ride down the Huron river. Lake Erie was really rough but the weather was amazing. We decided to go have lunch and shop in Port Clinton and Marblehead. After we were finished we returned to the boat. The lake was still kind of rough. John would have fished but it made me nervous so we returned to the dock. He of course still fished from the parked boat 😂 and of course caught a fish! Overall it was an amazing day!!!!

Love my dirty hooker fishing clothes!
Obviously this should be my boat
My lunch date is gorgeous
Ok who is buying me this????
Always anchor your bike!
Love antiques

Small town America!

There is nothing better then small lake towns. Well ok there might be some better things, but to me this is my happiness. I love having Lake Erie right in my backyard. I love the calmness and uniqueness of these small towns that line the coast. In the summer the streets are lined with tourist and locals enjoying restaurants, bars, festivals and of course the lake. In the winter it is quiet and peaceful. Small town America is my happiness. I am and always be just a small town girl and i finally met my small town guy! Today we enjoyed Huron, Ohio from the water!

Day date!

Last Sunday we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Rudy’s in vermilion. It’s a bar and grill near downtown Vermilion, Ohio. The menu has a large variety of appetizers, burgers, wings, sandwiches and sides. The head cook is amazing and she always has the freshest food and the best recipes for her menu. After lunch we walked around and checked out all the quant little shops. Now in typical small town America, a lot of places are closed on Sunday’s. As inconvenient as this may be, i secretly love that they do this because years ago (many, many years ago) most places were closed on Sunday!!!

They’re Engaged!

So my husband is a UPS driver and very personable! Niko works in a warehouse at one of his businesses and he mentioned he was proposing to his girlfriend in Vermilion this weekend. John jumped in and said we will be out there this weekend and my wife is a photographer. So long story short, i became a paparazzi hiding in the tree line to capture this amazing moment. It meant so much for me to be there and his girlfriend was really excited. After i looked like a creeper, i formally met Niko and Cella. They are young but have been together for 9 years. I hope they have a long and happy marriage. They are wonderful kids!!!

Fish Festival

What a wonderful day in Vermilion, Ohio! Father’s Day weekend is always the weekend they celebrate the Fish Festival. Friday evening they kicked it off with fireworks. Saturday they had food, live entertainment, kiddie games and vendor tents throughout the downtown area. Sunday they ended the festivities with a parade!

We walked around and enjoyed some live music by about a dozen elderly people. They were all dressed in tropical button downs. They each played a different instrument and they sounded really good.

John was very excited to eat a perch sandwich. He said it was really good. I stole a fancy fry! I packed my lunch so i didn’t have to eat anything unhealthy!
