Mackinac Island, MI



























































Mackinac was amazing. It reminded me of the movie, Pleasantville {a guilty pleasure}, with the tiny shops, dress codes, and carriages. The homes were incredible. The Grand Hotel was absolutely stunning - with it's turquoise ceilings, yellow antique sun chairs, black and white stripe awnings, and enormous rocking chairs overlooking the water. It reminded me of the Titanic. I ate a ton of fudge, walked a lot, and made Dave and I get matching sweatshirts. It was such a fun weekend!

Hope your week is going well! xo

I tried to respond to you but your email wasn't attached to my comment. Sad. :( I can't wait to see you on Thurs either. We are going to have to convince you to get on the twitter bandwagon. It's the best place to "chat".

Liz! First of all I just stumbled upon your blog and am so very in love! You have such precious style and I love your photography! So happy to be following along. Also - I was in Mackinac Island with my hubby this time last year for a wedding and it was absolutely DREAMY! I had no idea Northern Michigan could be so heavenly! :) Not sure if you flew in through Traverse City, but we passed through what looked like miles and miles of fields of sunflowers. Just gorgeous!! :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful trip! xoxo
