Traverse City - The Apples

After the wedding last weekend, Chris, our friend AJ, and I drove up the Old Mission Peninsula in search of an apple orchard. It was a gorgeous day, and we found apples...

in a front yard! It was pretty adorable - they had a tube for money and bags, but no one was out there. So we left our money and picked some apples.

After the apple picking, we drove back down the peninsula and stopped at a winery. A lot of grapes in Northern Michigan! The views were absolutely beautiful - at one point you can see Lake Michigan on both sides. How long til retirement - 2 years? 3 years?


  1. I grew up outside of Grand Rapids so my family drove up to the Traverse City area every summer to camp. I LOVE it up there and will for sure be joining you upon retirement :)

  2. Hi, Katie! I'm Kate...I'm in your mom's watercolor class at Eastern. We were looking at your blog today (and your Etsy site...your stuff is adorable!)

    I saw your comment about retiring in TC.

    I'm a native Traverse-Citian...the winters suck. That's all I have to say. Unbelievably miserable. Just something to consider.

    Fun reading your blog! :)

  3. Hi Kate! Thank you for all the sweet compliments!

    And, yes, I can totally imagine that the winters are terrible. If winters are this bad in Chicago (being on Lake Michigan), I can only imagine they'd be worse in Traverse City, being so far north!


Comments make me happy! Thank you, and look for your response here!
