The prettiest little place on the "Sun Rise Side"

How do I recap a perfect week in moments? With pictures of course! But first the memories that were not caught on  "film." Such as: Starting the first Olympic underwater handstand team, discovering that talking in a fake British accent all of the time is not only contagious, but extremely hilarious, drinking  piña coladas while floating on rafts and almost getting blown out to sea, games around the campfire, thinking about how delicious spaghetti and meatballs would taste for dinner while walking home from the light house, and then actually making it with great success!  Amazingly fulfilling naps, falling asleep to the sound of the waves and getting even closer with close friends.

This year, our good friend Dustin accompanied us on our Michigan vacation.  We stayed in our friend Jason's parent's house with Jason and a variety of other people (friends of Jason and Alex- Alex and Jason have known each other since high school) At one point we had a total of 12 people and one extremely smart dog named Maddie, in the house!

And now for the pictures that never seem to do it justice, but are always such a comfort to go back and look at in those cold winter months.  Until next time, Harrisville!  You really are the prettiest little place on the "sunshine side."

First stop was family time with the Goldmans.  Aren't they adorable?  Thanks for reading my blog Carol! I picked the picture where you look the prettiest and Marc looks the silliest.

And then, before we knew it, we were here:

Coastal Living, my new favorite magazine.  (Seriously guys, I'm totally subscribing).  Ice cream at the Ole Dairy Dome was a very important part of this trip.

And finally, a little rain wasn't going to ruin our trip to Mackinac island or our Canoe and Kayak trip!



  1. I see now that I really need to make it over to Michigan! I can't believe I have been so close for 2 years and never gone. I always dream of living in a tiny little coastal town on the East coast, or maybe now I see I could expand that dream a little. It might have been watching Dawson's Creek as a teenager that gave me the idea that it would be nice. I'm not sure. I loved seeing the photos of your trip. That little ice cream shop is adorable!

    1. Thanks Kristen! You definitely have to check out the Great Lakes, they are America's hidden gem! Yes, the ole cone dome was not only adorable but also delicious :)

  2. Love clicking on your blog and seeing a picture of my dad! I'll have to show him when I'm home TOMORROW!

  3. Looks like you had a great time! Cute hat!
