Greetings from the North!  For those of you who missed my earlier post, I am on vacation this weekend at my family’s home in Northern Michigan, or “Up North” as we like to call it.  The house sits on beautiful Lake Charlevoix, with easy access to Lake Michigan (Literally…they call it “Charlevoix the Beautiful“).

Dark Knight in Pittsburgh!

Bam! KAPOW! If you’re living in the Pittsburgh area these days, you’ll know that Pittsburghers are caught up with Batman Fever!
