A Weekend Away

This past weekend my husband and I were blessed to be able to head out of town and go up north to Traverse City, Michigan. This particular area has 180 miles of Lake Michigan coast and produces more cherries than any other area in the state. Bottom line, it's phenomenally beautiful.

We arrived at a Bed and Breakfast (my first stay in one, I might add) and there waiting for me was a gift basket full of local delights. Chocolate covered cherries, apple chips flavored with jalapeno, wine, and chocolate biscotti. Delicious. It was in fact, my birthday the day before we left and my husband wanted to treat this weekend as a birthday getaway.


My husband was the best man in a wedding that was taking place which was why we went in the first place. So, not only did we get to have fun celebrating our marriage, but we also got to celebrate the beginning of another beautiful marriage between some extraordinarily  lovely friends.





Northern Michigan is one of the most beautiful places you could possibly imagine. In the early Fall the colors start inland and work their way to the great lakes. We traveled all through the middle of Michigan on our drive and were constantly exclaiming over the beauty.





It literally was the most perfect weekend.
