Our 23rd

My sweetheart and I spent two days in beautiful Traverse City Michigan celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary. This picture was taken on the 45th parallel located on the Leelanau Peninsula.

The colors in upper Michigan are almost in full bloom.....only a couple more weeks until we see those vibrant colors here at home:)

Monday evening ominous clouds hovered over the Traverse Bay, however, the storm never hit. We had dinner at Scotts.....I highly recommend this restaurant :)

Since we were celebrating our anniversary I thought it would be fun to see how many hearts we could find in nature....the first one was found on a tree stump.

Another one found in a heart-shaped rock among the sand, water and weeds.

The third one was a shadow that Kevin's glass made while we were having dinner at Bubbas in Traverse City......loved this place too!

Kevin noticed the heart-shaped leaves on this Morning Glory......I need to plant one of these next spring. What a beautiful vine.

The two above pictures are of the vineyards on Old Mission Point. The Traverse City area is famous for growing cherries and grapes. There are many wineries up and down both the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas. Sparkling waters, panoramic hilltop views, rolling landscapes and lush vineyards make a simple drive a breath taking experience. Oh, I cannot forget to mention the many galleries peppering the quaint villages featuring amazing works of art.

Happy Anniversary, Kevin!

  3. Happy Anniversary! Now I remember what Kevin looks like! I remember that giant (Lincoln?) he had back when we went to the RDS Halloween party. Does he still have "The Judge" ?????
