Michigan Greetings & Giveaway Winner!

Hello from Michigan!

How cute is this print? Buy it here.
Cam and I took a red-eye from Reno last night and arrived bright and early in the mitten state this morning! Although we’re both a little tired, it’s SO awesome to be back home…because Michigan will always be home to me. This is my first time back since Christmas, so I’m really looking forward to spending the next 10 days here soaking up summer with family and friends.

First stop?

Ann Arbor of course!

(Do yourself a favor and watch this 30 second video as it perfectly captures the spirit of this awesome city…plus Tim Allen’s voice is really soothing)

Anyway, It feels like so long ago when we spent the day in Ann Arbor with Lola on our way out of Michigan during our move to Colorado, but it was almost exactly a year to the day. Ann Arbor is such an amazing place in the summertime, and I’ve been looking forward to going back ever since. We’re headed there to spend the morning/afternoon and meet up with my sister and her boyfriend who are flying in from NYC<–SO EXCITED for this. I can’t wait to walk around campus with them, stroll down Main St./State St./South U, and just revisit all the places in this city that hold so many memories for Cam and I.

Oh, and eat.
I plan to eat a lot today.
Actually, earlier this week I made a list of things I wanted to do while I’m home in Michigan and I’m pretty sure it was 75% food related. Whoops. Today in Ann Arbor, I am definitely going to be having a sandwich and gelato at Zingerman’s that is for sure. (I love Zingerman’s so much, I even wrote a whole post about it awhile back!) Yay food.

I will be posting this next week while I’m in Michigan, however, they’ll all be scheduled posts that I wrote before I left. (But get excited though because there are some really awesome recipes coming your way!) However, if you want to follow along with my trip (and why wouldn’t you, it’s going to be epic) then you can keep up on Instagram! My username is @janemarieg, and I will no doubt being doing a lot of Instagram-ing (yes, that’s a word) over the next week!
Last but not least, I wanted to announce the winner of the Southern Tide giveaway! And the winner is…
