Beer, fish, cold water, apple pie, and Megan and Jim :)

Hey, friends.
Last month, B and I headed over to Pigeon River Brewing Co with our friends, Mary and Joe. They were featured in the last Hoopla magazine.

It’s a small brewery in Marion, Wi, run by a couple guys and their families.




I’m always happy to see small, local businesses growing. Farmers turned brewers? Awesome. They’ve still got the bulk tank out back!
We got back from that midweek trip just in time for me to pack to head down to the Trout Unlimited annual meeting. This year, it was held down in Middleton, so I was able to drive there easily! I was asked to present about Stream Girls.
Chris Wood gave the state of TU address, filling us all in on what’s happened in the past year.

My friend, Jon Christiansen, also gave his presentation, as chairman of the board.

The Administrator of the EPA, Gina McCarthy, gave a very interesting presentation. I’d never taken photos at an event with Secret Service before!


As always, there was fly tying, and an awards ceremony. πŸ™‚


As if it’s any surprise, I made a lot of new friends and got to visit with some that I hadn’t seen in a while! Have I mentioned that I love the company of fishermen and fisherwomen? I even got to sneak out early for a little run with Franklin.


I am happy to be a part of this organization!
Fall makes me want to bake and cuddle in with sweaters and soup! I picked up some beautiful apples and made a pie. πŸ™‚ there is just something about homemade crust!



Abbie almost had a taste! πŸ™‚ darn cute dog.
A beautiful Sunday morning arrived, perfect for Megan and Jim’s engagement session.

I’ve known Megan since junior high- we played in band together! πŸ™‚






Love these two! Jim just became a marathoner at the Fox Cities marathon in September. πŸ™‚ They fit together so perfectly, and they just made my job easy… Their love for each other shines through in these photos. We can’t wait until your May wedding, friends!
Sunday night was teaching ballroom dance lessons with Dale. I had a cold, so I was kind of crabby. Dale recommended that I supplement with Vitamin B… Vitamin BEAR!



It worked, and I made it through my group lessons. Don’t worry, I gave hand sanitizer to my students and used it myself! πŸ™‚
More to come. Oh, so much more, but I’m heading out to brave the cold for a beautiful winter photo session!
