As soon as we knew snow was coming to Michigan Mark and I flew there to complete the shoots we couldn't finish last time due to lack of the white stuff.
So, we met (again) in Detroit and drove across the sate back to
And we did get our shots! Here are a few snippets....we shot the house and the exterior for next winter issue so you will have to wait to get the full beauty of the whole place....
And I got to visit with little Sidney again...still wanted to take him home............I wanted too but he is very happy there and my kitty Lilly just died a few days before I left for the shoots and I was not ready to get another kitty yet....I miss her so much. At least I could give some love to this little fur ball....
The other holiday shoot we did was in northern Michigan and, there, we had PLENTY of snow!
We drove to
delightful farmhouse. I have been kidding Maria because I so wanted a cup of coffee---she had graciously brewed a fresh pot--but she and Karl were off to church and when I went to pour myself a cup I could not find any milk!

D A I R Y FARM! Turned out she had forgotten to get some! Well, I had to joke that we drove over 2 hours to come to the farm and....NO milk! Anyway, Karl went to get some when they came back from church. By then I was fading away. Can't function without 4 or 5 cups in the morning. I am sure the caffeine is what keeps me going through all the shoots.
We had a fabulous time and made friends with their big labrador, Merle, and their little kitten "Kitty". The two are inseparable. It's just priceless.
Maria and Karl are adorable.
Meeting them and the Kuncaitis family was so worth the 2 trips to Michigan. I am so lucky to get to know all the wonderful people I get to meet on shoots. Totally blessed!
Here is the lovely Maria and me at the end of the day
LOVED being in the snow. It was truly a winter wonderland.
I came home to sunny and warm Florida last night and have to switch back to the heat. Quite an adjustment (80 degrees today!)
Stay tuned for the next adventure!
By the way, the first issue will be on the newsstands mid APRIL (not March as I previously said. My bad!! Sorry.)
See you soon.
