Weekly Coffee Date

Happy Sunday, friends! I just got back from a Taste Tour of Grand Rapids, Michigan with a few food blogger friends. I’m still stuffed. We took a tour of the Grand Rapids Art Museum and got a behind-the-scenes look at the completely awe-inspiring Iris Van Herpen fashion exhibit; we toured Founders Brewing Company; and we even went out dancing. More on this trip soon!

Now, I’m looking forward to a shorter week before Daniel and I head home to Massachusetts for Thanksgiving. Last year Daniel’s family and my family began celebrating the holiday together, and I absolutely love that. I can’t wait until we have our own home to host it—hopefully next year! I’ll live to regret this eagerness, right? :) 

How was your week? xo

“I just have to be very clear,” [Metz] says. “Whether or not I lose weight or stay the same, it’s purely a choice of mine for health. Not because I think that plus size, curvy, voluptuous, big bodies aren’t attractive — because I think they’re awesome and sexy…So I’ll just have to make sure that’s known, because I’m not selling out the big girls.” She laughs. “I don’t do that. That’s not me.”

    I live in southeast Michigan–so close, yet so far! Looking forward to seeing what you learned in my ‘neighborhood’!

    G.R. is awesome!1 I have spent many a time at Founder’s Brewing! (I live in Kalamazoo – 60 mi. south of GR). I agree the Art Museum is a wonderful place to browse. Next time you’re in GR, go to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum – IT IS PHENOMENAL!!
