The Homies!

The Homies:  Apartment Therapy's way of surveying the blogosphere each year for the best new home design & cooking blogs. It's not so much a competition, but to the winner of each category comes the real prize of lots of traffic as Apartment Therapy publishes the winners in big congratulatory posts across their network.  And, let's just say that the winners from the past two years have gone on to become quite successful!

So, if you have the tiniest minute to spare, we'd be grateful for your vote!  The link is below.  FYI:  It's a bit tricky to register, but we found it easier to sign in using our facebook accounts.  

Thank you for the support!!!

Swan Lake

14 February 2004
Near Ely, MN

We slept in this morning. The drive last night took longer than expected with the detour and the snow. The heat was out in the old truck so both of us were more than happy to stay tucked into our warm cozy bed late this morning. We had the best afternoon walking through the woods and trying out that old sled you found this summer. I've lost count how many times you had us fly down that hill. Next time I'll have to let you steer considering I nearly drove us into the pond more than a few times! When the sun started setting we headed home through the trees. We shook off our boots and spent the rest of the evening relaxing by the fireplace. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. Bringing us up here was exactly what we needed. I'd forgotten how much I love this place this time of year. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather share it with.

I Love You!
