If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you.”
I am a proud Faygo Rock ‘N Rye drinking, coney dog scarfing (Lafayette’s the best), Tigers baseball cheering, Michigan gal through and through.
Whether it’s the crack of the ball at Comerica Park on a cool summer night, the gentle dance of the tulips in Holland every springtime, or the calming laps of the lakes on our rocky shores, there’s no doubt that Michigan is a place like no other.
There’s plenty of amazing places to see and experience but there’s nothing quite like sipping an iced coffee in the Adirondack chairs that dot the great lawn of Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island…watching colorful kites swoop above in the crystal blue sky, hearing the waves of Lake Huron crash along the shoreline and the clippity-clop of horse drawn carriages waltzing by.
my favorite verse

THE HEART BEHIND THE BLOG
Turning Pain Into Purpose.
It was late in the evenings following my first miscarriage, that I’d spend hours searching for inspiration and encouragement on Pinterest. That is when I stumbled upon blogs from women around the world sharing their stories of heartache alongside travel pics and hair tutorials.
I quickly fell in love with the world of blogging and thought if I can encourage just one woman during a difficult season of their life like these blogs did for me, then all the learning and coding and writing and designing would be worth it. (Yes, there’s a lot that goes into starting a blog, especially when you’re not tech savvy!).
So, the fact that you’re here today is such an absolute blessing! Welcome! I hope you find something here today that inspires you and encourages you. Cue the Toy Story theme, can you hear it?
