Cove Point-Lake Superior

Happy Monday! 
Where did the weekend go?  I felt like my body and my mind were a day ahead the entire weekend!  If you missed a few post from the weekend, here they all are!
Domestic Diva First Installment 
Yesterday (Sunday) my flight to Dayton was booked for the wedding that Mark is in!  11 days till I get to spend 2 weeks with Mark!  It seems like our time apart has flown by, and believe me I am not complaining about this at all.  I have a feeling that this week is going to go fast.  Not only am I getting ready to leave for Dayton, my family is also heading up to the North Shore on Lake Superior!
My family and I used to go up to Lake Superior every year for MEA (a 3 day weekend for Minnesota Public Schools).  My family would go with good family friends, I have some of the best memories from these trips.  Lake Superior is beautiful.  However at a young age I am not sure I really appreciated the beauty or serenity of the lake.  I am looking forward to getting a bit of relaxing in before the whirlwind of traveling and weddings!
I am looking forward to seeing some old familiar sites from my childhood, relaxing, running along beautiful trails, hiking, and I am sure great food!  I am also looking forward to a few days of relaxing with my family, and my grand parents (we are taking them up north for the first time).
My parents rented a cottage at Cove Point (a local hotel/resort) that my family always went to.
I already know we are going to go hiking at GooseBerry Falls (my sister used to all it blueberry falls)
Split Rock Light House will be another adventure
and of course a dinner at Northern Lights (a little dive) that has the best pie!  Think a mix of berries, the restaurant calls the pie Fruit Of the Forrest.
In other news I want to draw attention to the email account set up for the blog.  Since on Tuesdays I will be talking about a range of health topics that interest me (last week was on breakfast), I want to open up for topic requests from you my readers!  Feel free to email your requests to the Happily Ever Healthy Email!

Have a fabulous start of the week, and remember to live Happily Ever Healthy!

PS I really want to make these!
How cute are they?
I pined this recipe a few days ago!  And just thought I would share the recipe and picture with you all!  Recipe and Photo from Ice Cream Before Dinner, and the recipe can be found here!


  1. Sounds like you have lots of awesome things coming up, have fun!!

  2. what a gorgeous view of the lake!

  3. My family went hiking to find a waterfall today.. but it was nowhere near as pretty as "blueberry" falls! The lake is one of my favorite places.. you're going to have so much fun! :)

  4. I love the lake. My summer classes end tomorrow and I have a wedding I'm in this weekend, but after that my boyfriend and I are skipping town to spend the next week at his lake house before school starts!

  5. I love the photo. I am such a water girl. I live on the central coast in California and I just can't imagine not being able to see water almost daily.

  6. Can you believe I've never been that far north to see the lakes. I mean, I have been up the east coast, but have missed out on the great lakes completely. NOT COOL. That lodge looks amazing!

    Hmm, topics I want you to talk about...

    How about Diet or no diet?
    and your remedies for curing illness at home?

  7. Have so much fun at your boyfriends lake house! The lake is one of my favorite places!

    AudreyO: I would love to live by the water! A dream of mine is to have a lake house, someday I hope!

    Hannah: Lake Superior and Lake Michigan are two of my favorite great lakes! If you and your husband ever get the chance to travel that way do it! The white sand beaches of Lake Michigan are beautiful!

    And thank you for the wonderful topics! I will write them down and start looking things up for them! Thank you again!
