Ready, Set, Go...
Wow! 2023 is off to a running start, and still so much to do before our "busy" season begins!
After completing the expansion of the Bed & Breakfast in October, we needed time to recoup. The winter is just that time! Like many, Bruce and I became "snowbirds" for several years, migrating to the south during winter. But this year, we still had final details to complete on the Bed & Breakfast and new gardens to design ready for spring installation. So, with the exception of a couple of short "getaways," we decided to stay planted for the winter at Inisfree.
Florida winters are pleasant and predictable - where the sun, warm weather, golfing, or fishing are everyday occurrences. But, being honest, it is also a little boring. Nevertheless, I am enjoying this hibernation period of a Michigan winter. After all, that is what the plants and animals are doing.
As I sit here this morning watching the snow fall blanket the ground, I just enjoy. Being in Michigan in the winter is not only beautiful but also what I need - a time to reflect, refresh and rejuvenate. Although there is still always plenty to do, winter allows me the time to sometimes do nothing. But mostly, time to prepare for the busy season ahead. And for this time, I am very grateful. So today, I will write my blog, l will work on a few more ideas for our business, and I might do a little baking. But there again, I might not!
Wherever you are - Florida, Michigan, Montana, California, or Illinois, I hope you are enjoying the winter season. Life goes by so quickly, and it is easy to not pay attention to what is right in front of you - people you love, the beauty that God sends your way, and YOURSELF! So today, make time for YOU! Others will benefit!
If you are looking for a "getaway" from your winter dwelling - INISFREE "Snowbird" Bed & Breakfast remains open all Michigan winter. Whether you are just down the road, in Florida, or Timbuktu, we would love for you to visit. A glass of wine, a book, warmth by the fireplace, or a romp in the snow. Whatever you fancy - but MOSTLY - a time to Reflect, Refresh and Rejuvenate your soul!
Enjoy your day and this winter!
