I Love You S’more

I'm not usually one to celebrate those silly made up holidays {Trail Mix Day, I'm looking at you} but when my sister told me that it was National S'Mores Day it seemed like the perfect reason to break out the marshmallows and celebrate.

spring chic

Springtime in Michigan has this magical quality about it. Even though I've been feeling particularly heavy lately {literally, not really figuratively} the sunshine and breezy temperature has a way to instantly transform my mood.

the graduate ann arbor

A few weekends ago Ken and I were invited to stay at The Graduate Hotel in Ann Arbor. Never being one to turn down the opportunity for a night away I jumped at the chance and couldn't wait to spend a little time in one of our favorite cities.

go fly a kite

I have never been more in love with our little city than I was last weekend. We went to the first annual Detroit Kite Festival on Belle Isle on Sunday. It was a sunny day and just windy enough near the river to help the kites get off the ground. [show_shopthepost_widget id="2749427"]

come hangout with me at madewell!

I got lucky with this dress a few weeks ago when shopping Madewell’s online sale section and lucky for you it’s still available in all sizes {I’m wearing a small}. I love the bright color and the pretty floral print not to mention the cut is really figure flattering. It’s another twirl friendly dress and it’s just perfect for weekends and warm summer nights.

cherry picking at westview orchards

I had recently seen a friend on social media take her kids strawberry picking at Westview Orchards and I thought it looked like so much fun. By the time we went strawbery picking season had ended but the cherry trees were in full bloom and ready to be harvested. Raspberries were also available to be picked but the staff recommended we avoid the raspberry bushes because they can be picky for little hands. Plus I knew Annabelle would get a kick out of climbing a ladder. [show_shopthepost_widget id="2736410"]
