Sunset in Saugatuck.
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I went on a PROPER SUMMER VACATION this year, a lovely almost-week in Saugatuck, Michigan.
It was a beautifully summery place, full of cottages and quirkiness. We stayed in a lovely little (LITTLE) place called The Nutshell, the perfect size for two humans and one canine who spent most of their time in beaches and bars. ;)
I read a lot, rewatched some movies, listened to tunes, and most importantly RELAXED.
You know, when I moved to Chicago, an NYC friend worried that I'd be land-locked here. I don't think people who haven't been to the Midwest truly understand the size of the great lakes. This lake pictured here? It reaches all the way from Saugatuck, where this photos was taken, over to my apartment in Chicago!
I like to call it the Midwest Ocean. It's got everything you expect from an ocean--tides, waves, seaweed, nibbly fish, etc.--except SALT. And maybe jellyfish, I'm not sure about that one.
If you enjoyed my week on Instagram, you might enjoy it on print? I only put it public there b/c I needed to give it to a friend--the version I printed for myself has a lot more pictures of ME up close & personal heh but the one publicly on Blurb is mostly shots of the charming surroundings with just a few of us.
Hope you're finding some time to relax this summer yourself!
Unfortunately relaxing has gone out the window since I got home and began the Major Apartment Purge of 2014 (random capitalization FTW and to drive my online friends nuts hahahahaha).
That's all for now. Peace out.
Love this. It makes me want to see your midwest.
