northern michigan part 2

July 14, 2017 / By / Post a Comment
Don’t write Mackinac Island off as a tourist trap–the picturesque island is a lovely place to indulge, explore, and find adventure…without all the crowds and (one-too-many) fudge shoppes. I think travel should be about experiencing different cultures and discovering the local favorites…ya know, getting off the beaten path. We’ve been traveling to Mackinac Island each summer […]

  • wishing these summer days would last forever...and all the flowers too. ☺️🌸
  • back home from a few days in iowa. grandma's house is always so magical--morning strolls on the tree walk, tomatoes and pesto from the garden, ice cream cones as big as our face, cousin time, county fairs, and endless goodies from the bakery. it's always so hard to say goodbyes, but it feels good to be home! we are headed to the market to fill up the fridge, but first, cinnamon toast for breakfast...healthy eating can start tomorrow! ☺️happy wednesday! xo
  • cheers to sunday! it's a perfect day for some summer sips. head to @livinglark for lots of inspo and wish her a happy birthday while you're at it! #livinglark 
and if you want something to read while you sip...don't miss the new blog post at on a few favorite northern michigan spots. xo
  • nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bicycle. -john f. kennedy

new blog post! a handful (so hard to pick) of my favorite northern michigan spots including mackinac island, bay harbor, walloon lake, and leland.
  • what a weekend! a huge storm ripped through our area early friday morning leaving us with no power for three days and heaps of yard work. we're thankful that was the extent of it--so many people around us had significant damage and one man even lost his life. we took the opportunity to head up north yesterday, unplug, and spend some time at the cottage. i left feeling frustrated (#badattitude) because i wasn't going to get anything accomplished this weekend, but i returned home tonight feeling completely rejuvenated and full of energy--it was just what i needed! but no blog post yet...hopefully this week!
  • missing mackinac island and all it's beauty. 

working on a little blog post with a handful of my fav spots in northern michigan. i hope to have it up soon! xo
  • happy fourth! 🇺🇸💥❤️
  • happy holiday weekend! have fun and be safe! xo 💥🏖🇺🇸 watch insta-stories from #cherrypointmarket yesterday--it was a fun afternoon at the lavender labyrinth and yummy grilled brie cheese + whitefish chowder. i can't wait to go to one of their fish boils!
  • last of the peonies {sigh}. who is ready for the {long} weekend? we are! we are!
  • today included a trolley ride, chocolate-peanut butter milkshakes, and a little gardening. so, it was a pretty great day.👌🏼
  • happy sunday, loves! i hope you find some adventure in your day--or at least some r&r! xo
