Lake Michigan

After a work trip to Traverse City, I made my way down Lake Michigan to visit the fam. We had grand plans to visit the beach two days in a row, but rain, yet again thwarted these plans. Luckily, a few of us were able to make our way to Grand Haven for some frozen yogurt and a quick beach visit before the thunder and lightning rolled in Saturday night.

My sweet pea baby cousin finally warmed up to me! She let me hold her and pinch her cheeks (after bribing her with a reese’s cup. Shit works wonders.) I snapped so many photos of her playing in the water in her little dress. So precious!

Pere Marquette

DSC_8365
Happy holiday weekend, fellow Americans! I’ve spent the last couple days celebrating my freedom visiting family and friends near Lake Michigan. This involved two cities: St. Joseph, a busy and populated tourist attraction and Muskegon, the polar opposite of St. Joe. My mom and I visited Pere Marquette, a beach I prefer because it’s just as pretty as Silver Beach in St. Joe and expansive, but no sea of people to navigate around.

I bought my first swimsuit cover up this summer and holy shit, it’s a game changer. I appreciate anything that simplifies my life and now I just throw this on over my swimsuit and I’m good to go.

For a typical beach or pool day, I pack two sunscreens: one high SPF (Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 55 c/o Meijer) for my tattoo and a lower one because I care less about the rest of my skin even though I should care just as much. I also pack a stack of magazines. Lately, it’s been Women’s Health and Self, which I read while snacking on all the sweet chili Doritos and string cheese I pack with me.
