Have I really gone three months without blogging?
Yes. Yes, I have.
This winter hasn’t been anything extreme in any way to me. We didn’t get dumped with an amazing amount of snow, it didn’t really get too cold, nothing out of the ordinary happened… I guess I just ended up spending a lot of time enjoying Mackinac Island on my own. I find that I can get too cynical when I hear others say how in love they are with the island, how magical it is, how blessed they are. I’ve gotten too caught up in work and stress that I wouldn’t allow myself to enjoy the fact that all of statements above are completely true for me, too.
So instead, I just tried to spend a little more time offline, focused more on photography, and tried to find the best about Mackinac Island and why it makes me feel blessed. I took a lot of great photos… and personally, I made sure to spend some of that time focusing on my health, enjoying the outdoors, finding more passion in my work, spending time with great company, and just living.
Now that’s not to say that I haven’t been posting any pictures online… they just haven’t been on my blog, and I’ve been uploading island photos on my Instagram account, @heathermay.xo (you might notice those pictures in the sidebar).
Anyway, now that we’re in the month of April and all of the snow is gone, I decided not to let the remainder of my winter photos go to waste and will post them below.
Below you will find winter photos from January through March of this year.
Please enjoy 🙂
