friends in michigan

Two weeks ago, we drove up to Grand Rapids, Michigan to meet up with my girl friends from college. My friend Ruth and her husband Jake just bought a house there, and we couldn’t wait to visit!

Nolan loved Ruth & Jake’s big backyard :)

So fun spending time with Emily!

I was excited to see our friend Stephanie! Matching cousins in yelllow.

Ruth made this cute Father’s Day brunch. I made a key lime cake.

Ruth’s amazing hutch from an antique store. They only moved in a month before, but everything was painted and decorated perfectly!

Reading with his buddy Linnea.

The girls! Emily, Mona, Ruth, me, Linnea. We had so much fun as roommates our junior and senior years in Chicago. And we hadn’t been all together since the month we graduated four years ago.

Gaslight village. The guys checked out the lake, while we picked up some pizzas.

We were only there for two days, so I wish it had been longer! Thanks to my friends for making it such a nice time!
