Michigan Weekend Getaway

Michigan Getaway

If you’ve been following along on my Instagram account, you may have seen a sneak peek into our Michigan getaway. John and I had been talking about going back up to Marquette to visit some of his extended family and decided during his spring break would be an opportune time, even if it meant leaving mostly snow-free Iowa for a place filled with snow.

DeerWe spent most of the weekend with family and watching the snow fall. A herd of deer put on a bit of show right outside where we were staying. I haven’t seen any that close…….other than the one that ran into my car when I was 16. Snowy Michigan

While we were there we did delve into a few Michigan goodies. We had giant pasties (best described as a meat and veggie filled pastry) from Cal’s Party Store and some amazing blueberry fritters from Huron Mountain Bakery.

We made the trek back to Iowa and found it was snowing here too. Let’s hope Spring gets here soon!
