Visiting Owosso


Aviator Jayne + Foster Coffee

In my early twenties, I seemed to make regular trips to Owosso to support my old boss Kate and watch her perform in plays with the Owosso Community Players. A lot has changed in Owosso since then and I find myself wanting to hang there more often. I love the small town feel and the vibrancy.

The downtown area was bustling with the farmer’s market and cute shops and restaurants with their doors and windows open. My friend Emily and I first checked out Aviator Jayne‘s grand opening and we left with candles, stationary and plants before checking out a few other shops and grabbing fall flavored lattes from Foster Coffee. If you’re looking for a fun way to spend an afternoon, I highly suggest visiting Owosso. Read More »

Blue Owl Visit

My friend Courtney drove in from Pittsburgh for a girls weekend last week, a much needed respite of watching Heartland and eating shit food. On a social afternoon, we jaunted over to Blue Owl Coffee, Retail Therapy and wandered around Old Town. She wanted to see all my favorite places I’ve posted about on my blog and social media, which made it easy for planning her visit–just head into places I normally visit on weekends! Read More »

A Quick Trip to Shadyside


To Pittsburgh!

In an attempt to make my back-to-back Pittsburgh travels more enjoyable, Cole accompanied me and I booked us a cute hotel, walkable to lots of great shops and restaurants like Adda’s Coffee and Tea House. I was in a grumpy ass mood for about a week, but didn’t want this unplanned trip to feel like a chore, even though it was (to retrieve my car that broke down last weekend.) Read More »


A Day in GR


Grand Rapids Lady Date

I made a quick trip to Grand Rapids last weekend to meet up with my long lost friend Sam of Samantha Elizabeth who moved back to the U.P. last summer. She was in town for a wedding and so I hauled ass to Grand Rapids to see her and meet her sweet baby Rowan for the first time. Read More »

It’s easy to lose motivation, inspiration, momentum..when winter hits in Michigan. But I’ve been thoughtful about making plans with friends and escaping my town for day trips to other areas in the state, especially adorable towns like Owosso where I can find free parking and hit up gems like Foster Coffee
My friend and fellow blogger Melissa lives there and she joined us for coffee while Greg (who just launched his blog the Colorful Perspective) and I took photos of our food with our cameras. We both ordered the pumpkin donut muffin, which was scrumptious and I switched it up and tried their iced coffee. Seriously, so good. If you live in the area, it’s worth the trip.
