Vacation Spot Round Up: Michigan

If you did a quick picture run through before you read the article (yes, I do it, too) then you noticed that I'm partial to places that are close to some kind of water. Lakes, rivers, ponds, puddles... I don't mind that much, I just think being on or by water is relaxing. 

I travel around Michigan quite a bit, but these are some of my favorite vacay destinations. I also think they aren't really well known - so I would like to share them with you all. You should also note that "Vacation" to me could be anything from going to Europe for six months or staying at my grand parents house for two days, so take that as you will and read on! 

 #1 - Gaylord, MI
This is probably the most well known of the four, but I still feel like people take it for granted. Yes, you've probably driven by it on your way to "bigger and better" travel destinations in Michigan. At some point you should give it a try, though. Camp sites and cabin rentals are reasonable, the hiking trails are numerous and canoeing on the river is SO MUCH FUN! Pardon my enthusiasm. I just can't get over how much I love canoeing. 
 #2 - Jugville, MI
This is not a joke, so please stop snickering. Jugville holds a gem known as The Shack (I've written briefly about it before) and it is incredible. Wood cabin apartments (it's like camping, except you get a bathroom in your cabin!), ice cream Sundays every night and a little lake. Sure, you might not want to stay for 7 days straight - but for a weekend or extended weekend get-a-way you're going to be hard up finding a better place to stay. 
 #3 - Lexington, MI
Lexington is a small town with an adorable downtown atmosphere. It's also right on the lake, so you can walk to beach or pier. The camp grounds are numerous as are the trails. The sunsets and sunrises are equally gorgeous when you're on a body of water as awesome as Lake Huron. A personal favorite camp ground is Lexington Park. Not too far from town and feels homey? Check.
#5 - Mio, Mi
Ah, Mio. I have saved my personal favorite for last. I'll shoot straight with you, I haven't camped here because we have a cabin, but I'm sure there are great camping spots. I love the hiking trails and rivers (yay canoeing!) as well as the Amish stores. Small town life can't be beat if you just want some time away from the business of the city.

Until Next Time,
Margeaux +The Warmer Team

Warmer Weekend #22 - Camping trip!

This past weekend was full of sunsets, sunrises, coffee, hammocks and Lake Huron. Margeaux went camping with a couple friends up in Lexington and enjoyed the time away! Check out some of the pictures she snapped!

Morning priorities. More coffee, please?

Enjoying our cozy Heat Holder socks.
Livin' the hammock life.

Gorgeous day on Lake Huron. 
Just a little hiking and scouting for poison ivy.
 All in all a fantastic trip full of nature and adventures. Have any of your ever slept in a hammock on a camping trip? All of the people at the campground thought they looked ridiculous hanging in the trees, but we loved them!

For The Love Of Mothers

While the criteria for receiving a medal of honor normally falls into the category of bravery in the midst of battle, I genuinely believe that the role of being a mother is as equally deserving.

During one of countless “kitchen table conversations” had with my Mom, I remember asking her if she felt prepared to have children. Her response?

“No one can ever fully prepare you for being a mother. Motherhood changes you.”

For a woman who gave birth 8 times, she should know.

Statistics show that a toddler is in need of their mother’s attention an average of 210 times daily. This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of Parent/Teacher Conferences, soccer games, bake sales, emergency room visits, prom dress shopping and mending your favorite pair of jeans.

Moms know how to get it done.

We are offering a perfect opportunity to give back to Mom this Mother’s Day.

For this week only, stop by our website and pick up a pair (or three) of our Women’s Heat Holder’s Original Style Socks at 20% off the purchase price (originally $19.99)! Proven to be seven times warmer than a basic cotton sock, Heat Holders are made from a specially developed heavy bulk yarn which has extreme thermal qualities. With long pile cushioning, these thermal socks will help keep feet warm and fully comfortable. The inside of each sock is not only sensationally soft, but also traps warm air close to the skin keeping your feet warmer for longer. 

Available in a large variety of colors, you are sure to find a perfect fit for your Mother this year.
Say thanks to Mom in a special way…she deserves it for so many reasons.
Until Next Time, 
The Warmer Team

Warmer Weekend #20 - Spring Has Sprung!

Spring is here and we love it so much! What have you guys been doing outside lately?

Spring Special

Relief. The word is the symbolization of a light at the end the tunnel.

After a winter season that dumped record amounts of snow around the country, caused numerous power outages and many more ice storms than we would care to see in our lifetime, we are ready for some sunshine.

As the snow begins to melt, we are all going to attempt to shed the winter blahs by an increase in our physical activity. As young as we may feel, we all know that our body is excellent at letting us know exactly when we have gone too far.

Trips to the gym, cleaning up the garage and around the yard are all perfect ways for that annoying back spasm or muscle strain to move into the picture. 
Getting back into the swing of things for springtime is going to be a process and we would like to make it an enjoyable one for you.

This week only, we are featuring a 10% discount on our Grabber 12+ hour Adhesive Body Warmers (originally priced at $35.99 per box). Simply apply discount code, STICKY10 at the time of checkout to receive this special offer. This mini portable heating pad provides extended relief for minor aches and pains and adds a touch of extra warmth for the early spring outdoor activities that may still have a bit of a nip in the air.

With its adhesive backing, simply apply the warmer to an inner layer of clothing to guarantee warmth and comfort exactly where you need it most. 

This is a deal that couldn’t come at a better time! So whether you are preparing to apply a fresh face to your yard or working to get that extra push on your bench press record, stop by and stock up on this limited time offer.

After all, ‘tis the season! 

Until next time,
The Warmer Team
