door county, wi

In 2014, my husband successfully surprised me with the location of our honeymoon: Door County, Wisconsin. He had visited there before, and we have since visited there. I actually had my new camera with me on this last trip, so I decided to document more. I loved it! It meant I got some marvelous funny faces, wonderful candids, and of course, my favorite picture of the steaming donuts from Singing Donuts in Fish Creek. Seriously. If you can, go.

The windows in the lighthouse are gorgeous, of course.

They have rotating flavors, so of course every day we had to reacquaint ourselves with the new menu.

Again, sunset pictures are the best. Door County was amazing! And it would be fun to go back again sometime soon.
