scattered rain over the lake.
a blanket of mist.
cherry beer + citron vodka + fresh juice
duck french onion soup with gruyere
truffled wild mushroom pizza with garlic cream + parmesan + fresh arugula
Gorgeous pictures, per usual. The pancakes and pizza look amazing!!
I’m dying of jealousy
Wish I was still on vacation at the lake.
And tell me more about the cherry beer (what kind?) + citron vodka (my fav) + fresh juice (which fruits?).
It was a cherry lambeac (lambique?)? And… I don’t remember what juices… oops.
Your pictures are phenomenal, I absolutely love them :)
Is that a fish jumping out of the water? You should sell that to animal planet!
That fish on the hook with the worm pic is outrageous!! Thanks for sharing all these – they could be on greeting cards :)
Did your Dad use cherry pie filling in those pancakes? They look amazing!
Nope – fresh blueberries!
I really want to be where you are – jealous!
Want. I love how the lake can look so different depending on the weather/time of day. Gorgeous.
Your pics are great! Where are you? You don’t have to give specifics, but I want to vacation there. Beautiful.
northern michigan! :)
Which lake? I used to live on Lake Huron and am missing it SO much now.
I really wish I was on vacation with you. And that fish jumping out of the water…how did you catch picture?!
Loved this! All the pictures are so beautiful!!!
mushroom shot is uber cool
as is the wine glass that you can almost see the water THRU the glass
cherry beer + citron vodka + fresh juice = yes!!!
Beautiful pictures! Everything looks amazing… especially the thick slices of bacon!
Your pictures are incredible — what a beautiful sky!
What was that cherry beer combination like? Tasty?
It was SO good!!
Tire swing and merry-go-round…best parts of the playground! I miss merry-go-rounds so much; they don’t seem to have them anywhere in California. So sad!
That cherry beer with citron vodka sounds SO good!
Lovely! I absolutely love them all. :)
Amazing as always. It blows my mind that you say you don’t like taking pictures, you have an incredible eye for photographs!
Hey Instagram addict, love the photos, especially the one of the merry-go-round; boy did those things make me dizzy.
Looks like you’re having tons if fun Jess. Relax, and enjoy.
Beautiful!! All of it! And I must say on an entirely different note, I’m so glad I got to meet you in person last year. So very glad. :)
How gorgeous-these photos are all stunning! I love them all, but I especially love the wine glass, blueberry pancakes, fish on the hook and that cherry beer drink! I read in the comments that you don’t know (remember) what juice was in the cocktail. Is it possible you could call the restaurant or go back and have another cocktail so you could “investigate” the ingredients for us and post about that cocktail? Come on, Jessica…please take one for the team! ;-) Seriously- that drink sounds amazing and I would love the recipe. I have never heard of cherry beer, but I want to find some to make this for my BBQ this weekend. I hope I can find it!
Enjoy the rest of your vacation…it looks like you are having tons of fun and eating tons of amazing food! :-)
We will probably be back there and I’m going to get another! :) I didn’t even look at the menu and this was just what the bartender handed me which is why I didn’t know!
That would be awesome! I know you can charm your server into spillin’ the beans! ;-)
That looks a lot like the vacation I just got back from in Northern Michigan. LOVE IT! We went to Houghton Lake.
I was going along happily enjoying the photos and then bam. Ice cream. Mmmmm now I want some ASAP!!
love love love the fish and worm pic!
duck french onion soup?? DUCK??? yes please!
Did you say truffled wild mushroom pizza with garlic cream?
I love it! Lovely pictures and a peek into your day!
I came back today to see if you posted that awesome cherry beer cocktail recipe yet, Jessica! I bought some cherry beer today in hopes that you will post the recipe when you return…please do! :-)
K I just got back from the restaurant! It is not something they have on the menu but the bartender (it was the same guy) said he does about 8 oz of cherry beer, 2 oz of lemon vodka, and 3-4 oz of juice – he uses orange juice AND cranberry juice mixed!!
OMG- have I ever told you how AMAZING you are??? Seriously…thank you so much for getting the recipe! I am going to make these tonight (maybe with the peach margaritas, too! :-) )!!! I will let you know how they turn out!
These pictures are so … summer.

Hey hey! You found me.
