Farmers Market In A Sleepy City

The morning after our girls night, we got up bright and early and walked across town to the farmers market. There was everything from paintings to flowers to vegetables and each stall looked more enticing than the last. 













When we were done admiring every corner of the market we meandered home, watching the city as it was just waking up. After a big hug and reluctant goodbye, it was time to head home.
Ann Arbor, I'm sorry it took so long for a proper visit but I promise it won't be my last.

Gelato & Hugh Grant

As I was getting ready to come home this spring, Julia dropped the bomb on me that she was going to live in Ann Arbor all summer to work on her thesis. This weekend the stars (and our calendars) finally aligned and we were able to get together for a much needed girls night. 
With a bag packed full of movies and music on full blast I jumped in the car and was off.
In my excitement I arrived a bit early and so I got a Julia edited tour of U of M. 










For dinner we went to Sava's, an Ann Arbor restaurant that I "had to try". 
I knew we were friends for a reason. 











After dinner, we managed to roll ourselves out of the restaurant and my tour continued. 







Somewhere in-between discussing boys and the daunting topic of our futures it was decided that gelato was a definite necessity. 
Then again, when isn't it?

With full and happy bellies we headed home to watch Hugh Grant and his goggle glasses. 

I couldn't have asked for a better girls night get together!

Christmas in July

No vacation is ever complete without a little road trip. Saturday we thew on our Lewis and Clarke shoes, jumped in the car and took off to explore Frankemuth, "Michigan's little Bavaria". It's a place full of horse drawn carriages, riverboat rides, chicken dinners, big wooden bridges, and unique little boutique shops. 
Our first stop was Bronners, the largest Christmas store in the world. Obviously. 

There's something so deliciously strange about Christmas in July. 









After getting fully into the Christmas spirit (and then slightly let down upon realizing it's only July) we left the store and spent the day wandering around town. 














Oh, and by the way, only 151 more days until Christmas. 
Not that anyone's counting.
