This chunky Ann Arbor squirrel can be seen lying on this tree branch in our back yard on an almost daily basis, at least during certain times of the year. This has occurred for at … Continue reading

Michigan is home to so many gorgeous beaches. Muskegon State Park is no exception. In the summer of 2009, the huz and I spent a few warm summer days in Muskegon.

Two and a half years ago, the huz and I vacationed in San Francisco, California. During that trip, we visited Chinatown! Eating pastries at a Chinese bakery, visiting a fortune cookie factory, and sipping on milk tea were just a few of our day’s activities. Read more about our time in San Fran’s Chinatown here.
