Intro

Good evening Reader,  My name is Ravensunset (well, it is for blogging purposes at least). I love to walk, listen to audiobooks, and travel. I always work to improve myself, even when I find that I am ruining myself in the process. I think it’s important to try hard and to always remember one’s goals.... Continue Reading →

Great Turtle Island (Part 1)

Dear Reader, Thinking about the American Midwest does not usually inspire visions of horse-drawn carriages and turquoise waters. Mackinac Island (pronounced “Mack-uh-nah”), Michigan, however, is not your typical Midwestern destination. Situated on Lake Huron right across from the Mackinac Bridge, joining Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas, lies Mackinac Island. Just 3.8 square miles and home... Continue Reading →

Growing and Remaining

Dear Reader, Would you rather get the hard stuff out of the way quickly or just wait until it comes?

When looking for a sangria recipe, I found... Continue Reading →

A Taste of the Big Apple

Dear Reader, Short, spontaneous trips can be great to revitalize one’s spirits. In my continued work-from-home situation, I am finding it increasingly difficult to focus my attention on my computer screen. While I used to work for over an hour straight without distractions, now, anything longer than 15 minutes feels like a mental burden (yikes!).... Continue Reading →

[Review] Harpoon Brewery

Dear Reader, How much beer can you drink in ten minutes? That question right there was pretty much the theme of the Harpoon Brewery tour and tasting. In my alcohol-production-facility tour and tasting experiences, I have come to find that these attractions come in all shapes and sizes. When I went on whiskey distillery tours... Continue Reading →
