A couple of weekends ago, Eric and I headed off to Frankenmuth, Michigan. It is seriously in the top three of my favorite days of the entire year. We literally do the same exact thing every year, so maybe it's the routine and tradition I love? Maybe it's just how festive the town is? Maybe it's because of the delicious food and drinks we stuff ourselves with? I'm not totally sure, I just love every second of this entire day. It's always so much fun! If you've never gotten the chance to visit Frankenmuth (especially you Michiganders), you really need to plan a visit... and soon!
A few weeks ago, we headed up to Rockford for a delicious lunch at Ramona's Table! I feel like we've walked past this place a million times, but have never stopped before. I'm so glad we got a chance to check it out finally! It was delicious, the service was wonderful, and I'm still dreaming of their seasonal sangria. Yum! If you're ever in Rockford, I'd definitely recommend paying them a visit. They're located right downtown Rockford (near the dam and all sorts of shopping!) and have a great outdoor patio in the summer. I can't wait to go back when it's warmer outside!

So if you don’t know, I work full-time as a graphic designer at a communications agency in downtown Grand Rapids. I spend my 8-5 behind my desk at the office, but sometimes I love to get out and work from a local coffee shop to mix it up a little bit. Usually I’m working over my lunch hour on the blog, so hitting up a local coffee shop is a great way to get out of the office and still be in a community of people. Working from home is always great too, but I definitely get distracted with chores and television, so heading somewhere to focus is always a good idea.Read More
A couple weekends ago, I got the amazing opportunity to walk in my first fashion show for Anthropologie! Every year, they host an annual Holiday Fashion Show with sips and sweets. It's such a fun evening to chat and mingle with local friends, do a little shopping, and enjoy a night out with some amazing fashion. I had a lot of fun trying out some totally unique looks that I might not have normally tried! I was surprised by two of my closest friends sitting in the front row, and I was totally an unprofessional dork just beaming down the runway. It was such a fun evening! One I was a little nervous for, but so glad I participated in, because it ended up being SO much fun. Thanks to Anthropologie for having me, and thanks to Jackie D Palmer Films for the amazing photos!

Moving onto... winter! I'm excited. Thankfully we had an awesome autumn, and it lasted all the way through November. But when December hits, I'm ready for snow, winter, and holiday cheer! We ended up chopping our tree down right before the snowy winter wonderland hit. It was nice for the convenience of chopping down a tree, and hauling it around, but it's always so pretty when it's snowy outside. Every year, we drive out to Hart Christmas Tree Farm. It's our tradition now, so I can't imagine going anywhere else. They have so many different types of trees to choose from, and you can either get one pre-chopped, or head into the fields to chop your own! We always chop our own, of course. It's way more fun that way!
