We did a little day trip to Detroit for Small Business Saturday. We started off getting coffee at a local shop – we chose Dessert Oasis, but there are a bunch of places to choose from. Some of my other favorites are Ashe Supply Co., Astro Coffee, Great Lakes Coffee and Madcap. Across from DessertContinue reading “Small Business Saturday in Detroit”

Three Days in Glacier National Park
For the first leg of our National Park road trip, we spent a few days at Glacier National Park. It was definitely my favorite! Just driving in the park is almost enough – everywhere you look are crazy mountain views, waterfalls and animals. You are literally driving on the side of a mountain the wholeContinue reading “Three Days in Glacier National Park”
5 Summer Days in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula
We wanted to go on a COVID safe vacation and there’s no where more social distanced than the Upper Peninsula. We’ve been a few times and wanted to do something new so we went all the way to the peak – Copper Harbor. I love being in the UP because it’s so calm with waterContinue reading “5 Summer Days in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula”
Three Day Friends Trip in Boyne City, Michigan
Every year our group of 10 friends goes up north together. 2020’s choice was Boyne City! A nice centrally located city. We stayed in an Airbnb that was walk-able to downtown.
Girls Weekend in Traverse City, Michigan
No summer is complete without a girls night or trip to Traverse City. We stayed in a VRBO in Capri Apartments which was a nice central location for everything we wanted to do.
Three Day Trip to Saugatuck & Holland, Michigan
The west coast of Michigan is the best place for beaches and beer – our two favorite things! We camped in our tent at Holland State Park and headed to all nearby cities.
Brewery Tour in Kalamazoo, Michigan
Michigan is one of the top three best states for craft beer in the country and Kalamazoo is one of the best cities to get beer in Michigan! There are many breweries and most are downtown and within walking distance of one another.
It’s about a 2.5 hour drive from the Detroit area. We got an airbnb and did a self-made brewery tour for a day. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday, especially when it’s warm out!

Here was our plan – everythingContinue reading “Sisters Shopping + Drinking Day Trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan”
Four Days in Tampa + St. Petersburg, Florida
Below is the itinerary for our time in Florida. We needed a break from the March cold! Our days were kind of all over the place, so this is how I wish we organized our time. We went over International Women’s Day weekend so I tried to pick a few women owned businesses as well.
Three Day (Winter) Toronto Trip
We went to Toronto over Thanksgiving since we both had time off of work. Our airbnb was on Queens street in the Fashion District. We loved this location – it was near a bunch of bars, restaurants and shops. We were only a short walk from a lot of sites. And there was free overnightContinue reading “Three Day (Winter) Toronto Trip”
