My guy and I went to Michigan to visit his hometown and surrounding areas back at the beginning of December. I completely spaced on posting the photos from the trip until just the other day! I took a bagillion photos, as always, and wanted to share a bit of our experience with you. This was my first time visiting the Mitt, and we went all over the place: Holland, Saugatuck, and Grand Rapids. We spent most of our time in Holland, but ventured to Grand Rapids twice because it was a hip little city with tons of yummy restaurants. So since I have the least amount of photos taken there (and that says a lot), I figured I would post those first. Have you ever been? If so, what are your favorite places there? We really loved Gaia Cafe and Marie Catrib’s. I loved everything about Marie’s: the style, staff, menu font, dishes… I wanted to order one of everything! I still dream of that place… Also, I had THE BEST soup at Graydon’s Crossing. I almost want to say it was the best soup ever. Unfortunately I can’t remember exactly what was in it, except pumpkin, cream, honey, some very sweet unusual flavor I couldn’t put my finger on but it was rich, heavenly and incredibly insanely delicious. I wanted to keep on sipping it from my spoon forever.
That’s mostly our time in GR for you: full of beer and good food. I will be back soon with more photos of the surrounding areas we spent time in.
