Michigan Trip Recap: Traverse City

A few weeks ago when I went to visit my boyfriend in Michigan, we took a trip up North to Traverse City. A few of his friends have a home on the bay, and wow, is that view stunning! {I wouldn't mind looking out at a lake every morning when I woke up!} A bunch of his friends came up for the weekend as well, and on Saturday we went wine tasting at some beautiful wineries. It was such a cold fun time! Here are some pictures from our day...

So beautiful, am I right?! 

Now, for a not-so-smooth transition…

I couldn't close today's post without a few comments about Sean and Catherine's wedding. As you know, I'm admittedly a Bachelor fan. Not always proud of that, but watching the wedding, I certainly was. Oh. My. Word. STUNNING is the only word that comes to mind. I adored her dress {I'm a lover of lace}, the flowers were unreal {although I didn't love all the pillars of flowers on the stage, I did love them around the ceremony space and her bouquet of peonies was gorgeous, too!} and the mixed chairs, settees and sofas for the ceremony seating was perfection. I only wish we would have seen some of the reception space. Goodness, I bet it was equally as drool-worthy. Mindy Weiss does it again  How can you watch that wedding and not dream about getting married?! ;) 

Did you watch the wedding and what were your thoughts?

Have a wonderful Monday!
PS. Speaking of The Bachelor, check out Desiree Hartsock's home tour and all the fun Lulu & Georgia goodies {the adorable online home decor boutique I work for.} I've been lucky enough to be working with her over the last few months and she is completely sweet!


  1. LOVEd The Bachelor wedding last night, you were right it was STUNNING! I have been reading Sean's sisters blog for over a year now so it was equally fun to watch her sweet family on TV last night too! His dad did an amazing job performing such a Beautiful ceremony. I am a Bachelor junkie, ha, and this was just one of my fav Bachelor moments!
