Pure Michigan

I’m backkkkkkk!   We returned from our trip to Michigan on Sunday and have been trying to play catch up ever since! As you probably know, Nate & I are from neighboring small towns in southern Michigan.   It was nice to go to the place that we’ll always call home.   I know a lot of people that have never been to Michigan assume that it sucks, but I’m determined to change your mind.  Summer in Michigan is absolutely gorgeous, and there is a lot of great things to see.  Our vaycay went by fast, and we didn’t get to experience all that our hearts’ coveted, but here’s some of my favorite pictures from the trip:


Our 1st stop: East Lansing!

There’s me in front of my old dorm at Michigan State.


Oh Sparty, I’ve missed you more than you know.


Congrats to Colleen & Jesse – there’s me with the beautiful bride!


Stop #2: Detroit

We don’t take no bull! (Kel & I in Wyandotte)


Take me out to the ballpark! A summer trip home is not complete until we go to a Tiger’s game.


Now you know where I get my eyes from!  (Aunt Ann & I)


Stop #3: Kalamazoo

 Maci Muggles enjoying life


Uncle Warren & Aunt Janet!


Stop #4: Grand Haven

Reunited! Finally!!


Love me some Lake Michigan


Nate & Biff


Stop #5: Irish Hills/Brooklyn/Napoleon

St. Joseph’s Shrine in Irish Hills.  Such a special place – not only because we got married at the Shrine 2 years ago, but also because my family’s history is rooted so deeply here.  My grandparents and other relatives are buried here too.


Check back tomorrow because I’ll be putting up the pictures from Chicago! 🙂


Until then…. xoxo!


  1. Great Michigan shots. Reminds me why I like living here as I’m sitting here in the dead of winter. I found your blog as I was searching for information/photos of Irish Hills. If you can help me solve my mystery please let me know at my linked blog entry.

    1. Hey Mike,

      Thank you! Yes, it is such a beautiful place – even though we live in Texas now I’m still proud to call Michigan home! 🙂 I commented on your post about Irish Hills. I hope it helps!
