A Walk in the Country: Michigan Post #2

Every experience God gives us, every person he puts in our lives, is the perfect preparation for the future that only he can see. 

-Corrie Ten Boom

When I moved to Michigan 10 years ago, I never knew who God was going to bring into my life. 
The experiences I had there, the ones I had in moving back to Indiana a year and a half later, and the people God brought into my life he put there for a purpose. 
Now, 10 years later I am still best friends with one of the people that he placed in my life. Like the quote above says, everything he did was in perfect preparation for my future. That only HE can see! I'm thankful for it all, and for this awesome, wonderful friend he gave me. 

I finally got around to editing and posting more pictures from my trip to Northern Michigan. 
These pictures are anything great. But they are special memories of time I got to spend with one of my best friends.
One morning we got up and took a walk. Nothing hardcore. Just a nice walk through the Michigan countryside. 
This was a lazy day for us. When we got back we took our time getting ready, eating brunch, running to a the little "Kris Mart" to get Jello cheesecake, watching movies, and talking until all hours of the night. 

I miss your beautiful face Andy!
