Indian Summer

Leonardo is probably having a heyday right now. How on earth is it mid-November and the high tomorrow is 69?! I looked up what the weather was a year ago today and there was a complete whiteout. But hey, I’m not complaining because I know what is coming. Winter is coming. In the meantime, I plan on taking full advantage of these beautiful days by going for lots of walks/hikes and keeping my Fall wardrobe alive and well. I got these jeans this past August while out in Santa Barbara and have yet to wash them. Gross, maybe, but they wear

Canadian Tuxedo

Hahahaha, I don’t even know where to begin with this post! Andrea and I went to Grand Rapids the other day because we are obsessed with all of their restaurants and coffee bars. And alcoholic bars. Anyways, after bouncing around town all day, we ended up at the Reserve for a glass of wine. Mistake #1. Have you ever seen that popular Facebook post that was circulating with the 4 pictures of people after drinking  wine? First picture was before wine, second picture was after 1 glass, third picture was after 2 glasses, and fourth picture was after 3 glasses. I’m

Nothing beats Michigan summers. Growing up, I always thought Michigan was so boring and that the state had nothing to offer. Wrong, wrong, WRONG. My love for Michigan grew tremendously when I went away to school on the West side of the state, along Lake Michigan. Now I dream of settling down there one day. Nothing beats it!

It’s snowing, it’s raining, it’s warm, it’s cold, it’s sunny, it’s windy – all within 8 hours of each other. And I thought my PMS was bad. But I mean, hey, it makes life more interesting. I always tell Sam “I bring color to your black and white world πŸ˜‰ ” He just gives me “the look” and then we both laugh and kiss and cuddle because we’re perfect. Sorry we’re so in love. NOT! πŸ˜‰ It had warmed up a little bit the

Exploring Ann Arbor

I hate to say it, but I stepped into enemy territory the other day. And loved it! I love my Spartans, but the Wolverines live in a pretty cool city. I have lived in Michigan my entire life, but never realized just how big Ann Arbor really is! We spent about 6 hours there and we are already making plans to go back because we didn’t get to go everywhere we wanted to. Let me share with you some of my favorite places we discovered today… #1: The Songbird Cafe Our first stop! When we pulled into the parking lot and
