summer vacation

Unfortunately, my summer vacation was not very long this year. Coordinating schedules with my family is a difficult process, even just for a few days. But sometimes a weekend is just perfect - short but very, very sweet.

Traverse City, Michigan was hosting it's annual film festival this past weekend. They had a huge movie screen set up overlooking the bay and artsy-looking movie posters and signage up and down the streets. Although we didn't get a chance to view any of the films that were included, it was cool to walk around and see how the festival changed the town.

We made some time for some hanging out on the beach. Relaxation is not a thing my family does well, so this was a big deal.

We also took a drive and visited {Two Lads Winery} which ended up being super cool. The architecture of the building is very modern, with bright colors and large glass windows - something you don't see up north too often. I suggest you stop by if you're in the area!

If you haven't been to Northern Michigan, it is definitely worth the trip (no matter where you live). The sunsets, the water, the trees, the friendly folks - it's a hidden gem, people!
