Next Stop: Michigan

(Print by Friends of Type, via the 50/50 Project)

Hello, America!  We are home safe and malaria-free!  I held a koala, pet a kangaroo and rode an elephant - and can thus die happy.

I took 3,000 photos ("Oh, that's all?") and am almost done sorting them.  However, that's been put on the back burner because...I'm moving to Michigan!

If you've ever lived in Ann Arbor, I am taking recommendations.  Namely, where to find the best cupcakes, good places to run...and how exactly to salt a sidewalk.

  4. So glad you are back. I was following all your fabulous adventures on Instagram.
    My husband is from Ann Arbor and loves it. We recently saw The Five year Engagement and he said that the restaurants in the movie are real ones so check it out.

  36. Hey love!

    Cupcake . . . hmm. ZIngermans has awesome baked goods, but I don't know about cupcakes.

    Run . . . you must go to the Arboretum. Anywhere in Ann Arbor is lovely to run though.

    Salt . . . keep it off your shoes! That stuff is deadly.

    xoxo
