Hi guys! Just dropping in quick to invite my Michigan readers to a fun Madewell event this Saturday, July 26th, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We'll be hanging out Saturday afternoon for sips, sweets, and styling tips from 12-3pm. There will be a special discount and free gift with purchase (while supplies last). I'd love to see you there! If you're planning on attending, shoot a quick note to store.283@madewell.com to let them know... and definitely let me know in the comments too! xo

Mission Point Lighthouse

While in Traverse City, Eric and I headed up Old Mission Peninsula to see the lighthouse at the tip-top called Mission Point Lighthouse. You drive along M-37, which is such a beautiful scenic route with cherry orchards and vineyards. The lighthouse was built in 1870, and decommissioned in 1933. We explored the beach for a while, but unfortunately missed the time slot to tour the inside and climb the tower. It only means we'll have to come back someday! Plus, there are lighthouse keeper programs here. I'm definitely going to do that sometime in my life. ;)

World's Largest Cherry Pie Tin

Last weekend, Eric and I headed up to the cherry capitol of the world, Traverse City, for cherry festival. On our drive there, we stopped to the "World's Largest Cherry Pie Tin". It's located by Sara Lee Bakery, on highway 31. On July 25, 1987, the world's largest cherry pie was baked in this tin. It was 28,350 pounds; 17 feet, and 6 inches in diameter. The Guinness Book of World's Records certified this pie as the largest ever made. Next up, we'll have to go see the second world's largest cherry pie tin just 50 minutes away in Charlevoix. I sure love the quirky things in Michigan, don't I? Afterwards, we went to the original Traverse Pie location and shared a mini cherry pie. We also checked out the festival, rode a couple of rides, drank cherry sodas, and watched a friend play an acoustic show at Workshop Brewing. I just adore northern Michigan.

Casual weekend

On Saturday of our long weekend, we kept it pretty casual. During the day, we basically laid around, napped, ate tacos, you know, the usual. At night, Eric's band had another show in Grand Rapids at The Back Forty Saloon. It's one of their usual spots to play, and it's always a good time. A few of our friends came out and we ate barn fries, had some drinks and enjoyed the music! We headed outside for the fireworks downtown around 10:30pm (so lucky we got to see two sets of fireworks this weekend!) but I'll definitely admit fireworks are much better on the lakeshore. ;)
