Northern Michigan Travelogue
Just a few weeks ago, Derek, Lizzie and I took a family road trip to Northern Michigan to visit Derek's parents. Derek grew up in this absolutely beautiful portion of our country, and I always tease him that certainly everyday he lived there must have felt like a vacation! Since his family still resides in Boyne, we spent the week scouting around in Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Sturgeon Bay. Here are a few of my favorites sites and activities from the trip!
While we were in Harbor Springs, I had the opportunity to visit one of our favorite Rebecca Ray retailers Joie de Vie where Valerie has done the most magnificent job displaying our products. Her store is absolutely gorgeous; as you can see below, it's a visual treat!
During the evening one night, we went to Elk Rapids Polish Festival for not only the draft horse pull competition but for the Kielbasa, Sauerkraut and noodles - does it get any better than that? Here is the winning team!
Also, I was able to visit Rebecca Ray traveling retailer, Bead by Bead at the Traverse City Horse Show, where Ann has a beautiful set up and display of Rebecca Ray.
Another day was spent at the Petoskey Antiques show - foraging for great finds. It is always fun to be at a antiques show in a different region, as you tend to see different things. I loved this vintage stone stool and had never seen anything like it! As for these antique fishing creel bags, the natural bag farthest to the right reminded me of The Camryn bag! You can see where I get my inspiration from!
And, as usual, we did all of our regular vacation things like Tom's Mom's cookies, Guerney Store sandwiches, farmer's markets and beach time. It was a great break and fun family time. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
Until next adventure, Best!!
