This Christmas break you may find yourself binging on Hallmark Holiday movies while overdosing on your mom's homemade Fannie Mae fudge. While this may be quite the comfortable position to be in, it's time to roll off the couch and embrace what's in your backyard in Pure Michigan.
This past week my grandparents came to visit from Canada, and what better thing to do with old people, then visit old places.
Just kidding. They're the ones indulging me, because historical homes are my favorite, and I have been wanting to visit this place for a long time now. The Felt Mansion is located on Lake Michigan, right outside the town of Saugatuck, and has been called home to the man who invented the calculator, seminary students, nuns, the state's most dangerous criminals, dusty bunnies, and just recently restored and open to the public. You should really check out this place, and hear more about it's story - Christmastime is an especially good time to go as they have decorations Christmas trees decorated from all over the world that make this the most wonderful time of the year!
Mother and daughter - you can see where I get my looks ;) These two beauty queens look like they haven't aged a day.
There's even a chapel right on the property where you can perform your wedding ceremony, then head to the mansion for the reception and party!
My favorite trend right now - oversized, glitzy earrings. Perfect thing to spruce up a holiday outfit.
This, is my grandpa. Though he may look like a tough Dutch man - he's a big ol' teddy bear inside.
And this, is his beautiful wife and my grandmother, who loves jewelry, Costco, and laughing.
Merry Eve of Christmas Eve! I hope you all are spending the Holidays with loved ones.
