This little slice of Wisconsin surprised me in many ways with its beauty! I came across this spot while searching Instagram hashtags and added this adorable spot on my, "trip list." After showing my boyfriend, Nate, the images we decided to get some of our own pictures taken! So off we went to Two Rivers to Point Beach for a weekend getaway! I fell in love with this light house and other photographers images but after exploring the area ourselves we knew we had to go back someday. We spent one of the days walking up the beach and admired the amazing view. The beach over looking Lake Michigan had sunsets of cotton candy tones making us feel like we were in Florida. When we entered the forest it's as if we were in Colorado surrounded by the tall evergreens, so many amazing views! The light beaming in was gorgeous as we walked along the paths with the beach behind us.

On our way up and back home we stopped in Port Washington, a town Nate visited when he was younger. After grabbing lunch we ventured out to the light house so watch the sun set. I'm pretty sure I said, "this is so pretty," about 50 times. Another spot we are definitely go back too!

We enjoyed Two Rivers so much we went back with the boys in December! This little slice of beauty became a place we all loved and we can't wait to go back in the summer! It was super cold when we went up with the boys but we still were able to get out and explore the frozen shoreline. It was so cool to see the water frozen as the formed into layers and balls of ice!
I was shocked at how many lighthouses were along the coast of Lake Michigan. Rawley Point Light, which is above, is located in Two Rivers at Point Beach. This lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse on the Great Lakes!

I am so fortunate that I was able to see new exciting locations in 2017. Each location I explored made me appreciate the ability to travel, each areas own uniqueness and the chance to wander. All of my travels in 2017 showed me at least one thing about myself that has helped me with future desires. I left each location with a new hop in my step and goal in mind. Being able to end the crazy year on a new happy chapter was really refreshing and needed. I grew a lot in 2017 and I am so excited to keep on this amazing journey we called life with the amazing people I get to spend my time with. 2018 is going to be a great year. :)
