Warmer Weekend #31: Michigan Elk Country


Several weekends ago we had our first snow in Michigan. It was short lived, but it happened to be while my husband and I were up north, so it was pretty gorgeous. 

We were up in Michigan Elk Country, scouting for... you guessed it, Elk. We did see quite a few in Gaylord, but the best part was when we saw them out in the wild. It was amazing to be able to see them in their natural habitat.









While we didn't see as many as we wanted, we did get to explore some areas that we had never been to, so the trip was well worth it. What about you guys? Have you scouted and adventured anywhere new lately? Being outside in the crisp chilly air this time of year is so fun for me. I'm hoping you guys are enjoying December as much as I am. 

Until Next Time,

Warmer Weekend #30: Saugatuck, MI


I'm back with another installment of #warmerweekend! I know, I know... I'm a little late for this week - but I'm excited to share these lovely photos with you! 

A couple weekends ago my husband and I headed out to Saugatuck, MI to enjoy what we thought might be one of the last warm-ish days of Autumn. Not only was it gorgeous and warm, it was also not super crowded so we were able to do a lot of site seeing and not have to contend with lines or waiting. Win win. 










Saugatuck is gorgeous, and could have also doubled as one of our Day Trip features. It's amazing that there are so many lovely places so close to home, you just have to go find them. 

So what about you guys? Were are you guys enjoying the last weekends of warm weather?

Every occupation holds aspects to it that tend to stray from the glamorous.

For a Ski Patrol officer, one day you could be mingling with families on the slope of a local resort and the next you may be working to uncover a hiker that was caught in an unexpected avalanche.

Working in the shipping industry could find you shipping out a birthday gift to a grandson or granddaughter and the following day could find you shouldering the task on shipping a load of exotic fish to a wealthy entrepreneur.

No matter the line of work, when you have been trusted to fulfill a task involving a temperature-sensitive setting, you want to be sure that the accessories you have to assist you are as dependable as you are.

Why not pick up a box and see for yourself?

Warmer Weekend #29: Frosty Mornings


For the record, I am not a fan of being cold.

Yes, I have made the choice to stay in Michigan winter after winter, so I am not privy to the option of complaining about the cold weather, when I could just as quickly hop in my car and secure a condo in West Palm Beach.

Mother Nature finds joy in countering the beauty of the seasons with a slightly extended (let's be honest, its really long.) winter, here in Michigan.

It comes every year, despite our refusal to acknowledge it.

On Sunday, my schedule required me to take an early drive out to the city of Caledonia for some early morning activities. I will be the first to readily admit that I am not a morning person, but once I'm up, I find the morning drives quite peaceful, especially with most of the area still sleeping.

Sunday morning turned out to be especially beautiful.
While many locations in northern Michigan have already seen frost and yes, even snow, West Michigan hasn't received the colder bursts of weather just yet.

I woke up Sunday morning to a dreamy layer of frost coating the grass in my front yard.
The sun was just beginning to tip the horizon and hadn't had the chance to bear down on the glittering artwork.



Upon arriving at my destination, I found this whimsical sight awaiting me.


This is a favorite time of year for me.



That happy medium where the leaves are hitting their most radiant colors and we get just that tease of the chill in the air.



I am slowly beginning to bring the sweaters and turtlenecks out from their places of hiding and starting to get use out of my boots. So many delightful activities to get bundled up for including football, soccer and bonfires!







My visit to witness the storied rivalry between the Men's Soccer programs at Hope College and Calvin College fit the bill, bringing a chill in the air, making me very thankful for my layers and the warmers that I had tossed in my bag.




The skyline with the brightly colored leaves along the outskirts of the Van Andel Soccer Stadium at the Hope College Campus made for a truly beautiful evening.











Have you gotten out to experience any of the sights of the autumn season yet?
No matter where you might be located, there is beauty that you will only find this time of year.


We would love to hear all about your adventures. Share them with us!

Until Next Time,

Warmer Weekend #28: A Taste of Northern Michigan



I just want to get it out there that I love summer.

When you live in a state that, if surrounded by any more lakes would be its own island, you learn to have an appreciation for the fresh water beaches from all sides.

While the summer sun is a rare and treasured thing here in the Mitten, I have to say that autumn in Michigan is one of my very favorite times of the year.

October boasts some of the richest and most creative color schemes you will find anywhere and is known for bringing in spectators to partake in just one of the many attractions that Michigan has to offer.






This past weekend, I made the trek north to the house I grew up in the western point of Montcalm County. My parents still reside there, while my siblings and I have mostly made our way south towards the thriving metropolis of  Grand Rapids.

My oldest sister's birthday was the latest reason for the family to gather and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather.

October in Michigan can swing one way or the other and not in a leisurely manner. Mother Nature seems to get a bit particular this time of year and anyone who has lived in the state long enough knows to keep every possible weather necessity within reach in their vehicle.



Following dinner, my Mom, sisters and myself, along with several nieces and nephews ventured out for a walk and as always, the trees did not disappoint.





We encourage you to take a little walk out your door to see what autumn is doing on your side of the tracks. We're sure you won't be disappointed.

Until Next Time,
