Mackinac Island

This past weekend Eric and I were blessed with a weekend get-a-way to Mission Point Resort on
Mackinac Island.  It is only 3 1/2 hrs north of our home and made us glad to live in such a beautiful state.  See, I am typing this now so I can remember it when we are knee deep in snow in the next few months!  The seasons truly are amazing and refreshing. 

It was one of the best weekends we've had!  The weather was crisp and sunny.  The sunsets and sunrises were magnificent.
We've been there several times before, but this trip seemed different.  It was extra relaxed...

Our hotel behind - it is gorgeous and has great history!

Extra active...
Eric ran around the Island - 8.2 miles!!
I rode next to him and kept his pace an overall 8.5 mph...I know, I know, I had the "tough" job! ;)


Extra beautiful...

Extra fun...













 And a pumpkin spice latte on the cool morning made it extra special! :)
