Instead of shopping on Black Friday, my husband and I went up to Saugatuck for the day!! We had a great day! Sometimes it's nice to have a date day.
Plus, you know how I feel about winter in the Midwest, but this year I have decided to get out there and try and enjoy it.....as best I can:)
We started off at this super cute little bar..
I just love this place!! We come here a lot in the summer and usually this area is open to the outside...but you can see they put up walls!
Here's my husband....hoping I don't talk to much during our "date day!!!" I always talk a lot....mostly because I am just so happy and I want to make everyone else happy too:)I had a little glass of this....Next, we headed over to this cute little place...It was so festive in there...Then we walked around and checked out all the cute shops...Who cares if we had to dress like this for our date day~
Trust me....I would rather be walking around the beachy areas in Florida or anywhere else that warm. But this is all i've got and I am determined to take better advantage of it in the winter!
And guess what.....we had just as much fun as we do there in the summertime:)
Here's what the water looks like in the winter...yes...it does make me want to cry...but, again, I am determined to remain positive:)Even in the winter..you can still find things to be happy about..
like this bench! I don't know why but it made me happy!! I just so colorful and pretty!
Our last stop was this place...Along the way to walking here we saw a couple more happy things...
and I finished up with this....
All in all...I am so happy we bundled up and went out and did something fun! Sometimes you just have to bloom where you're planted!! Yes, I would love to live somewhere warm and sunny...but I don't. I don't want to wish my life away and from now on am going to try my BEST to get out and enjoy what we have here:)
Have a warm and cozy Sunday~
