I live for fall colors. Something about the muted browns, fiery reds and oranges, in contrast with blue and gray skies, makes me feel the most alive.
Just a few snaps from my recent visit to Grand Traverse Commons, formerly known as the Traverse City State Hospital.
last weekend started out ROUGH. i got up early to work at a craft show and it didn’t go all that well, and came home to some stuff that was totally harshing my mellow and that made me want to crawl into bed and never leave.
the last thing i wanted to do was to leave my house, but thankfully facebook reminded me that i was interested in attending the 15th Annual Michigan Lavender Festival. feeling particularly alone, i resolved myself that i might as well make the most of the last full day of the weekend by spending it by myself doing what i wanted to do. so, at 10am on Sunday, i packed up my car and drove three and a half hours across the state to attend the lavender festival. and i’m so glad i did.
Ever since picking up the Brewsader passport from Experience Grand Rapids, I’ve made it a point to pick out breweries from within the pages to try new drinks and food. Last weekend, my friend Kristen and I went to Elk Brewing in Comstock Park to grab a bite and a brew.
