Mr. D and I spent the weekend “Up North” in the carriage house. When we were getting ready for dinner on Saturday evening I was lucky enough to snap a few photos of the sunset. Almost every night Mother Nature puts on a spectacular show over the lake – this one was particularly good because it had been a stormy day. As a matter of fact, my Auntie Pam *you know, the one with the fabu chicken!* claims that the sunshine always makes an appearance for cocktail hour in Harbor Springs! Gotta love her, right?
That view makes me want to make art – I mean seriously, it’s completely breathtaking. Don’t you just want the interior of your house to be painted in these colors? Rich velvet, linen and silk – all hand-dyed in these gorgeous colors of Mother Nature? These images are not doctored or enhanced in any way. To be honest, it was much better in person. It’s just amazing here and I feel so super lucky to have seen it.
We celebrated Mr. D’s 35th birthday over the weekend. It may not be a pretty cake, but Mr. D’s Devil’s Food Chocolate Birthday Cake with Homemade Whipped Cream “icing” and crushed Heath Bars was completely Delectable! I had to think of a doozy of a cake since I had the coconut cake from last year to compete with. Now that was a cake! Hang tight, I will be posting the recipe for the Heath Bar Cake on EAD Living this week. Speaking of which, did you catch my food and shopping guide to NYC last week on EADL?
