Looking through some of my most recent blog posts, I realized that I’ve been trying to show you all these beautiful places but the weather has been so unbelievably gloomy it takes away from the beauty of it all!
Well, the other day I was asked to take some pictures for someone who grew up in Michigan but later in life moved to California. She’s looking to decorate her entrance way and wanted to fill it with photos of all her most memorable places in her hometown.
The day we went out, the sky was bright blue, the sun was out and I just had to share the photos with you!
First stop was the Edsel and Eleanor Ford house – a mansion right on the lake belonging to the Ford family. It’s open to the public and unbelievably gorgeous.
Next it was over to the War Memorial. Originally a mansion home, built in 1910, by the end of the 1940’s it became a memorial to those who served in WWII and a center of education and charitable activities for the community.
Look at that terrible hair! Pretty much the epitome of the worst of lake hair!
Finally, as the sun reached the very top of the sky, we stopped off St. Ambrose church.
See, I promise you the sun does shine here in Michigan and when it does, you’ll wonder why you’ve ever spent time anywhere else!
