Yes Michigan*

What a idyllic way to spend 6 days and 5 nights.
I had very limited iphone connectivity which forced me to unplug for a bit.

It was so nice for Tim and I to spend time with my parents, my sister, and her boyfriend. The weather was ideal, hot and humid just like the summers of my youth. We played croquet, drank a LOT of beer, ate a ton of peanuts and potato chips and lots of other things that aren't in our normal diet but it was delicious.

On our first night we had a fun hot dog dinner with beans, chips, cut up veggies and corn and then my Mom surprised me with a lemonade birthday cake that was cold and lemony; it blew my mind. My Mom makes the best cakes!

The rest of our days were filled with sleeping in, sunning ourselves, playing outside and spending time on the sun porch playing games, reading and just hanging out. Tim and I took a little day trip on Monday and drove around the thumb of Michigan along the water and then back through the farmland, which I absolutely love. This trip made me incredibly homesick for Michigan. The lakeside towns are small, old, and so cute. I found a little grocery store for sale near the tip of the thumb that I can't stop dreaming of owning one day...I have so many ideas for it. Can you imagine me riding a snow mobile to work in the winter? What about delivering groceries to summer home renters in a big red pick up truck? I can see it very clearly.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip.
*Yes Michigan was a tourist campaign in 1986 celebrating Michigan's 150 Birthday.
