salvage yard.

I think it's really important to find unique places to visit in your state. I've been guilty of taking my own surrounding area for granted and I think it's kind of silly. Traveling is important, too, but I think it's important to travel around your own town before moving onto others. My family and I still do this and we're always so happy when we stumble upon hidden gems that have been right under our noses for years. We've actually visited this salvage yard once or twice, but it has so many hidden treasures and there's always something new to check out no matter how many times you've been.
My mom found a really cool piece of a sign that said 'at' amongst the many other over-sized letters they had. We loved walking through the rows of odds and ends, sifting through tons of doors, and playing the Tarantella on an out-of-tune piano. It was such a lovely summer day — the kind I'm sure we'll have many more of since I am officially done with my second year of college. It is such a surreal feeling. This semester really flew by, and just like that I am already a Junior. After two years of working a full time summer, I'll only be working part time for this summer. I'm really excited to have some time to hang out and relax and do some really fun, crafty things with my mom. My family, Jeffrey and I are also taking a trip to Wisconsin to visit my sister and her boyfriend. Then, Jeffrey, Evie (my sister), Mark (her boyfriend) and I will drive to Minnesota to stay with Jeffrey's grandma. She has a summer lake house that is quaint and heartwarming. It's going to be such a welcome change from a 40 hour work week. I can already imagine the pure bliss. What are your plans for the summer?

My problem is that I live right on the edge of Wisconsin... so I always consider Minnesota more my state than WI. Sort of weird.

My sister and I love to salvaging. My Husband hates it because I just bring home more projects...for him.
