Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

Can you believe we moved to Michigan almost THREE months ago?! I can’t. The time has gone by so quickly.

Being “home” after having been away for ten years is an experience. I’ve been enjoying it. There are a lot of adventures to be had in Michigan.

Here’s a little peek into what life here has been like so far:

This adorable sign was hanging on our front door when we arrived at the end of our 15-hour journey. My oldest and dearest friend, StarSara and her husband Michael made this for us and also provided us with delicious thai food.

Diesel, formerly my sister’s dog, joined our household the day after we moved in. He’s the best dog ever and has been a welcome addition.

Our friend Ian stayed with us for about a week to help us make our house a home. We miss him.

1969 Chevy C-10. Randall and I bought this truck today.

We bought this truck, a 1969 Chevrolet C-10. Her name is Madeline and we love her. Someday she’s going to be painted silver and orange, but for now, her sunny yellowness brightens up our driveway.

My gorgeous baby sister.

We’ve been spending a lot of time with my family – this is my youngest sister, Micayla. At almost-18, she’s ten years my junior & one of my favorite people on the planet.

Plants and books. #channinghouselove

This bookshelf in our living room is one of my favorite spots in our new house.

Great lake adventuring.

*Sara and I went on an adventure for my birthday. This was taken in Lexington, Michigan, at a breakwater that is now one of my favorite places.

This is how my dog deals with visitors.

Baby roommate turns 18. #weird

There are a lot of impromptu knitting parties in my life these days. (Nearest the camera in the second photo is Emma. She’s our little roommate.)

Watching Parenthood & practicing the seed stitch.

This has given me the chance to master the seed stitch! (PS. I watched all three seasons of Parenthood in about two weeks. Shameful.)

Cyclist style.

Spring sprung early in Michigan this year. It’s been in the 60s for the past week or so. Springtime is my absolute favorite, so the first warm day, R.T. and I played hooky for the afternoon & broke in our new bicycles with an 8-mile bike ride. We’ve done an 11-mile since and I’m hoping to do at least one 30-mile ride this spring.

Thanks for indulging me – this little trip down memory lane has been fun.

We’re headed back to New Hampshire for a visit next week & I’m super excited to see everyone.

(PS. Before I go – did you see that I’m giving away a starter site? Click here for details.)

  1. NH misses you, Ms. Creates. But what a lovely life you have there! I hope you’ve been making use of your newfound cocktail crafting skills in your adorable Michigan home. Knitting and cocktails go stitch in stitch.
