Big Lake Updates

Welcome to The Big Lake!

With the fresh energy of the New Year upon us, John and I have been busy making plans for 2018: adventures/micro-adventures, projects, races, and personal & business goals, to name a few. Over here at The Big Lake, I’m excited about welcoming you to my new + improved blog, where I’ll be writing more about life Up North, sharing our Great Lakes adventures, and diving into some new, fun, and favorite projects for my shop.

I’ve set an ambitious schedule for myself, with the hopes that it will keep me writing, developing and improving my photography skills, and sharing the beauty of the Great Lakes region (& beyond!) with you. Here’s a preview of what’s to come each week on the blog:
