We’re all proud of our home land, and as we should be! Our roots lie in where we are from; so much that shapes who we are and the values we hold comes not only from our family and how we were raised, but from the environment and surroundings that we were raised in.
Combined with the love I have for my home and native land, as well as my creative spirit and the ways in which I find inspiration, what better way to celebrate than by paying homage to the very things that are cultivated right in my own backyard!
I’ve been an avid camper since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I adore every aspect of it, whether it be in a tent, or log cabin; the constant fresh air, being surrounded by trees and nature, making friends with chipmunks, fishing, swimming, boating, saunas, camp meals (nothing beats the smells and tastes of a good home-cooked camp meal!), campfires and campfire games, s’mores, the abundance of stars smattering the dark night sky, loons calling out over the lake, the complete disconnect from the urban world, and the camaraderie of being with family and friends.
