In honor of my sister’s birthday weekend, here are some snippets of my time in Michigan back in June to visit her!
My sister, Katie, thought it would be fun to sign me up for a 5K the day I flew in. About five minutes in, I thought walking the course sounded more enjoyable. They had some recycling themed sculptures along the riverwalk.
Promptly after, we found a brewery where I soon discovered that the sun sets far in Michigan later than the sunshine state.
The next day, while Katie went to work, her boyfriend showed me one of the local diners. Where I got to order my norm: Two Egg Breakfast with turkey sausage and hash browns.
We then headed to the downtown area where I met up with Katie. Where I got to roam quaint bookstores and more local boutiques full for goodies.
We then headed to Gallop Park to hit the water with some kayaks.
Fun fact: I’m the worst Floridian. I’m not a fan of humidity. I was stunned when about an hour into our kayak trek that I had not sweat one bit.
Later that evening, we headed to a nearby town where we indulged in some tasty Mexican food.
The next morning, we hit you the local farmers market.
That farmers market is where I had some of the best ham and cheese crescent I’ve ever had.
The next day we hit up Teaspressa. It blew my mind.
Another fun fact:
Coffee makes me sleepy.
Yes, it’s a curse.
So I’m a tea person, needless to say.
&& this place was absolutely divine.
We headed to a park and I had my first game of disc golf.
Shout out to my sister, her roommate, and her boyfriend for showing me the local gems of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
