Michigan Here We Come!

That’s right! In a month or so we will be headed to Michigan!!! There is nothing better than Michigan in the fall time. It is just so beautiful time of year!! I am super excited to go because we didn’t plan on making it this year but I am super nervous as well. This will be Colton’s first trip anywhere on top of the fact this will be his first time on an airplane. My biggest fear is to be that family with the screaming baby! I mean I won’t be able to take him anywhere, we are stuck on the plane. I am sure Colton will do great!

The best part of it all is I get to do all these things for the first time with my little man!! It is going to be great!! Colton gets to see where I am from, even though he won’t remember it!

It’s Fall Y’all

Today is the first official day of fall. While I love fall and it is absolutely my favorite time of the year, it makes me miss home back in Michigan. As a Michigander let me tell you, there is nothing like Michigan in the fall time.

The trees change to the most amazing colors and then the temperature is just so nice! I just love it!


BUT the best thing about fall in Michigan is not the weather or the scenery, it is the apple orchards! They open in the fall time and nothing, I mean nothing beats an apple cider donut from a Michigan apple orchard. It is by far the thing I miss the most about Michigan.

There is nothing like going to the apple orchard and getting fresh donuts and cider. It just screams home to me.

Okay, that is my rant for the day. I hope you all are having a great beginning of fall! It was a beautiful day here in Texas and I am looking forward to the Scarecrow Festival that is coming in 3 weeks!

Until next time.
