It’s finally here!!!! Indian Summer is here!!!! The best time of the year!!!
Without waiting any longer we decided to enjoy this beautiful gift of nature, we left our kids behind and started to drive out West…
We drove until we hit the Lake.
Don’t take me wrong I love my kids, but once in a while I just want to enjoy being an adult and carry on an adult conversations even if it’s only for one short weekend. At first we wanted to visit Michigan wineries. Did you know there are 70 wineries here in our state and almost all of them are on the beautiful Leland Peninsula? Did you also know that Michigan is on the 7th place by exporting their own wines? It has being our tradition to go there every year to taste new wines. Not this year. We were persuaded by our very close friends to go somewhere else and let me tell you we fell in love with this little town call Saugatuck. Only 2,5 hours away from Metro Detroit and 1,5 hours away from Chicago! Perfect location!
I don’t know if it was the perfect mood or the perfect weather or maybe the combination of both, but when it was time for us to go back we did not want to leave. For the 48 hours of our stay there (in Saugatuck ) we had accomplished more than we did in the past few months here (home): from the flowing conversation to the delicious food, from laughing with tears in our eyes and cramps in our stomachs to admiring never-ending beauty of our state……
Oh yes, I almost forgot: from the swimming in 10C Lake Michigan to just being silly
as only an adult can get once he-she realises that this is the weekend to let loose and to enjoy the simplest pleasures of life.
Unfortunately like everything in life, this wonderful short trip ended, and we had to go back to be responsible parents to our wonderful kids, but when the time will come we will run back there again to be silly, funny and worry free even if it’s only for a short 48 hours.
Next time- Summer time in Saugituck, my new favorite spot!!!
