{ Fall in Northern Michigan with Us! }

Fridayyyyy you're here! Hey pals & welcome back to the blog!! So occasionally I like to do what I call "filler " posts..other bloggers do them too in the form off shopping or affiliate linked items, but I like to of course go against the norm & share these type of filler posts in the sense of being raw & just what we're up too..No sponsorships, affiliates etc.. just US! I'm sorry if these types of posT are boring to you, but I like to add in our real life occasionally & today was the perfect time. I'm working on a little post  that will be published soon, but it's dark out today, my tripod is giving me issues & so I thought let's share our Northern Michigan getaway with you all! So all last week I wasn't feeling so hot. I've mentioned this before but I tend to have kidney issues { nothing major } but stones, irritation etc.. Well, last week I had a UTI & just wasn't myself. Mark suggested we pack up & head north to the cottage & at first I was hesitant because it's 4 hours away & I knew the ride would be uncomfortable...I'm glad I  listened to him, because it was the funniest most relaxing time in awhile!! We didn't do anything crazy but just soaked in the quiet towns, shopped, ate & enjoyed being away from everything, even the pups { sorry guys hahaha}. Anyways come see the highlights from our little weekend trip & tiny VLOG -HERE

We pulled over after looking at cute cottages in Downtown Frankfort! Frankfort for me is everything special & then some. I don't know what it is about that little town but it will have my heart forever. It's quaint, has yummy food, awesome antiquing shops & just beautiful views without being too commercialized. Needless to say we're not super big fans of Traverse City..

Frankfort, MI

We know old friends  that live locally in the T.C. area, so I asked her what was the best little country cider mill & Gallagher's in T.C. was the answer! She was so right, it was the cutest little farm market & bakery with the most adorable farmhouse, piggies & scenery! Thanks Sidney!

I hate heights & behind me was a huge drop-off to the beach..I took one look & well here's me scrambling to get away from the edge haha! Thanks Spark..ha

Although it was a chilly day, the water looked gorgeous & the trees were just starting to change! I wanted to bottle this little area up & bring it home forever!

Okay, HIGHLIGHT of our little weekend trip! You guyssss these piggies were the most ADORABLE characters at this farm ever! I was talking to them & the little black one got all excited & started "rooting" & jumping around hahaha! The smell was enough to knock somebody out, but them enjoying the pumpkins in their pen while oinking was the cutest! My little vegetarian hippie loving heart was happy!
*See them live on our mini VLOG  HERE

We explored quite a few antique shops while up there, even an old mill { super nifty }..this was the cutest & I'm regretting not buying the hanging farm scale for $50!! Ahh I could pinch myself for not snatching that up grrr! I did find some cute treasures though & I blogged all about them HERE.

Our cottage is surrounded by Christmas tree farms..& if you know me or have been following the blog for sometime you would know that I'm literally obsessed with pine trees & Christmas..I told Mark I wanted to " Clark W. Griswold" it & bring home one of these massive beauties hahaha..Don't tempt me!

I hope you weren't too bored with this kind of post from us!! I like to keep you guys in our personal life as much as possible without being too crazy ha. This little cottage peeking, junkin, food binging trip was just what we needed to reset. Fall truly is magical in Michigan & I'm thankful for Mark & this season!

Happy Friday!
