Honeymooning in Northern Michigan

Spending our honeymoon in northern Michigan this past summer was such a great decision that it became almost hard for us to leave when we had to head back home to the Big Apple. Not only is it always a joy for us to be able to swim in a lake that’s like the ocean (unsalted), but this particular area of Michigan holds so many of our cherished memories as Scott’s family has owned a cottage up there for over thirty years!Processed with VSCO with a6 presetBecause it had already been 6 years since our last trip to the cottage, we made sure to soak up every second of our time back up North. I’ll be real and tell you that we spent the majority of it either at the lake or a local brewery, but then again, what are vacations for if they don’t also involve some form of leisure activity for an extended period of time? ;) To give you an idea of what our week was like, here are some of my favorite memories from our time up North:Processed with VSCO with m6 preset

Also, just a quick shout out to my mother-in-law for creating this sweet surprise (pictured above); she even included some goodies for our dog, Baxley!
