The figurative "We".

"You always post "We" or "Our" when writing about Leland gal, so who else is involved?" People do ask me this question from time to time, and it's really a hard one to answer.

This is how my summers in Leland, Michigan started. That's me, the tiniest one in the bunch. We spent the summers together with these two families, who are not related to me by blood, but forever connected just the same. We had a 15 year run growing up together in the summer sun, always in our bathing suits, sandy, busy and fell into bed every night with full days of action only to start all over again the next day.

This is just the start of my support system spending summers in the creative Leelanau County. These summers were the foundation of what life should be all about : Friends, family, food, the lake and nature.
