Travel Diary: Bliss on Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan is pure bliss. My mind is calm + my heart is happy — like every time I return home. 

My family and I are rooted in Holland for the week; a small lake town that’s one of the happiest places in the country [literally, it’s been rated]. Growing up, I took its beauty for granted. But now, coming back, I realize there’s no place more peaceful than this.

Here are snapshots from the trip, including a fun girls day on the boat. I’ve been sipping and swimming, laughing and loving. The dunes this time of year are incredible, creating the most scenic backdrops [perfect for a blog shoot]! Thank goodness my family has gotten used to me snapping away…
