Short Trip to Michigan

Since we were married in Denver, we decided that we would have parties in both of our hometowns in order to celebrate with people we would have liked to have at our wedding. We married months ago, but I wanted our party in Michigan to be outside so waiting until summer was the plan. The weather started out a little overcast with some rain showers, but overall we had pretty great weather. I could not have imagined things any better than they turned out!

* Burt Lake in the summertime *

Michigan, more specifically Burt Lake, in the summer is my favorite place. The natural beauty of the lakes, trees, rivers, and everything else cannot be beat. There's something about small town America that makes me want to do cartwheels while singing a patriotic song. I just love it! My feeling of nostalgia might also have to do with sitting on a lake shore with the wind blowing in my face. I love that too. Summer in northern Michigan is incredible. If you like ice cream, fudge, candy, golfing, boating, swimming, tubing, sunsets, or anything else related to summer in northern Michigan, then I think you will enjoy your time there. Not to mention, the stars at night are amazing... and if you're lucky, you might even catch the northern lights. For anyone who hasn't experienced it, I hope you get the chance! We enjoyed our visit to Michigan in the summer, and Burt Lake will always be home to me.


For anyone who's interested in learning a little more about northern Michigan, here are a few informational links to take a look for yourself:

Pure Michigan   (the rest of Michigan is cool too... I'm just partial to the northern part... and Ann Arbor too)
