During our trip to Tahquamenon Falls, lighthouses were (of course) on the itinerary! In the morning, after breakfast at our hotel, we headed up to Whitefish Point to explore the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and the Whitefish Point Lighthouse! We got our tickets to the museum and for the tower climb, and quickly headed to meet up with the rest of the group. The climb up the tower was pretty easy and it was an amazing view of Lake Superior. We caught some glimpses of Canada up there too! It was a perfect day full of blue skies and blue water. We were so blessed with great weather on this day!
Onto our adventure to the Upper Tahquamenon Falls! Since it started raining the day before, we decided to postpone and go back the next day. I'm glad we did, but holy moly, it was busy! We had to wait in line for quite some time to get into the park, find a parking spot, and walk to view the falls. People everywhere! It seemed everyone else had the same idea as us to head to the falls for autumn colors. It was worth it though... so pretty up there! We first checked out the upper brink of the falls, and kept stopping at every turnout in the path, conquering lots of stairs to see every angle of the falls. It smelled so amazing up there. I could just breathe in that fresh cedar scent everyday!
We're back from the most magical weekend in the upper peninsula visiting the Tahquamenon Falls area! The fall colors were in full force, the weather was cooler, the rain held off for the most part, and we got to explore both the upper and lower falls, see two different lighthouses, drive down winding back roads, and eat lots of burgers and craft beer (wine for me, of course). I'd relive this weekend over, and over again. This weekend just contained everything that makes my heart so happy... Eric, lighthouses, October, fall foliage. I was such a happy lady all weekend long, and didn't want to return home! But here we are, back to the city, and I'll just have to relive the experience through my photos this next week!

Hi friends! I'm popping in with a beauty post in collaboration with Meijer. With the change of the seasons, I always have to do a little tweaking to my beauty routine, especially with our drastic temperature changes in Michigan. My skincare routine is pretty simple, but my skin drastically dries out this time of year, so I'm always looking for good healing products to help battle that over the next several months. I also love to incorporate a few darker colors in makeup into my routine. I'm sharing a few of my favorite products I've been using lately below, so read on!Read More
Happy Monday! Onto a new week. I hope you guys had a great weekend! Ours was sort of unexpected. Eric was supposed to play shows all weekend, but there was a scheduling conflict, so I got him home to myself! We tried to do some autumn things, but honestly, it just didn't feel right. It's been SO warm. When we usually head to the apple orchard, we're cozied up in sweaters and sipping hot apple cider. Hot apple cider when it's 80 degrees just... no. I did end up getting my first pumpkin spice latte of the year (iced, of course), we did a little shopping (got a couple of new fall jackets for our trip to Tahquamenon Falls!) and accomplished a few things around the apartment. All in all, good weekend, I'm just ready for those fall temperatures! Give me sixties!

Hi friends! Long time, no see. I apologize for the unintentional blog break! I feel like the last month has just flown by. We're already into October, and I'm still not sure what happened to September! To be honest though, not much is new since I saw you last. Work has been busy, we had the craziest temperatures in the 90s for a couple of weeks (I couldn't deal!), I attended a couple of local events for the blog (a fun clothing swap and a Meet Cute styling event), had a Wine Club, and went to a music festival Eric played at. We haven't really dived into autumn yet, since the weather was seriously so weird, but we're getting there now! So far, I checked off "pick up pumpkins" and "decorate fall porch for autumn" off my October bucket list. The best month of the year is here! I'm so thrilled, but I can already tell it's going to fly by.
