European Starlings are not many people's favorite bird. Probably not anyone's really, Certainly not mine either, but when the light hits them right they are very pretty with all the colors. #canon6dmarkii #puremichigan #thegreatlakesstate #michiganstateparks #wildlifephotography #wildlife #naturephotography #nature #natgeo #gettheshot #europeanstarling #starling #starlings #belleisle

I ❤️ that it’s finally getting warm enough to eat outside. 🥗🍷🍽

This fish should have the water flowing through it by the weekend, and it is just a very small part of Belle Isle’s fountain. The James Scott Memorial Fountain is a monument located in Belle Isle Park, in Detroit, Michigan. Designed by architect Cass Gilbert and sculptor Herbert Adams, the fountain was completed in 1925 at a cost of $500,000. The lower bowl has a diameter of 510 ft (160 m) and the central spray reaches 125 ft (38 m). The fountain honors the controversial James Scott, who left $200,000 to the City of Detroit for a fountain in tribute to himself. #detroit #belleisle #urbanlove #michigan_lovers_photos #wearemichiganders #michiganoverboard #michiganawesome #michiganders #naturalmichigan #michigan_wanderlust #setiobe #equanimity_frame #michigan_view #puremichiganders #michiganunsalted #mibeachtowns #michigansun #capturingmichigan #mittenstatelove #thanksmichigan #puremichigan #puremittenpride #puremittigan #mi_awesome_state #thegreatlakesstate #greatlakeslocals #goodvibesgreatlakes #magnificent_michigan

An aerial view of a stamp sand deposit from the Cliff Mine in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula. Stamp sands are leftover coarse sand deposits from the copper mining days, once the targeted metals were extracted, the leftover rock was dumped into massive piles within vicinity of the mines. Today, they are often found in the middle of the woods, having been overtaken by nature. Michigan's copper country has the best examples of these stamp sand piles anywhere in the world, and the most well known ones are near Gay, Eagle Harbor, Kearsarge, Central Mine, and Cliff Mine, although theres many more scattered around the peninsula. They are a popular destination for rock hunters. . . . . . . #michigan #beautifuldestinations #thegreatlakesstate #puremittenpride #puremittigan #michiganoverboard #keweenaw #enjoymichigan #michiganawesome #naturalmichigan #michiganders #puremichigan #puremidwest #mittenlove #mittentrip #lakesuperior #the_folknature #justgoshoot #moodygrams #folkvibe #dronesdaily #folkscenery #thecreatorclass #agameoftones #droneoftheday #droneheroes #way2ill #rockhunters #greatlakesproud #createexplore

A close up of yesterday’s post.

Do you have a children’s book that leaves you in tears EVERY SINGLE TIME you read it? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Warning: the below caption has nothing to do with this kissy photo, except that they both involve Liesel 😘 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ We visited our local library to refresh Liesel’s book stash and @officialericcarle ’s “A House for Hermit Crab” was part of our haul. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ We chose it because Liesel loooooved looking for “crabbies” 🦀 under every shell on every beach as we traveled, so naturally this book was destined to be a winner ⭐️ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Well, we read it at bedtime last night and the book follows a little hermit crab on a year-long journey around the world (sound familiar?) trying to make his shell the perfect home 🐚 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ At the end of his year, he realizes he’s outgrown his shell and gives it to a smaller crab who needs it. He is sad to part with the place he’s called home for the year, but he finds a new shell and immediately starts looking forward to the new adventures he will have in his new shell ... and... I’m not crying, you’re crying 😭 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Do you have any books that get you like this, every time?! Please let me know so I can bypass them at the library 😂 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Also... tonight we are going LIVE with a couple big announcements! Tune into IG at 9pm EST to learn more! 🎥 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ —————————————————— 📚 @TheFUNemployedFamily —————————————————— ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #familytravelblog #travelmadfam #bringthekids #travelmum #sheisnotlost #powerofshe #livelightly #ugglife #greatlakesloving #only_in_michigan #michiganders #puremichiganders #talp19 #thegreatlakesstate #womenwhoexplore #passportlife #herwanderfullife #puremichigan #lakelife #motherdaughtermoments #mommyandme

My sweet pups, I would be so lonely without them. They sure make my days brighter. Thankful they love the beach as much as I do and grateful for the type of beach you wear sweaters to, I’m a cold climate type of girl. These sunny and cool days are my cup of tea. ☀️ And for those of you already in the 90s, bless your heart, we’re praying for you, but you can keep that heat down there. 😆 What’s your favorite type of weather? . . . . ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ ↠ #sonyalphaanimalportrait #dogstagram #blueheeler #acd #heelerworld #heelerclub #cattledog #dogsthatexplore #dogsthathike #uptravel #dogphotography #getoutside #goexplore #puremichigan #exploremichigan #thegreatlakesstate #greatlakes #lakesuperior #bestwoof #thegreatoutdogs #toktheblue #animalnorth #xtratuf #salmonsisters #upperpeninsula #cattledogclubhouse #theruffoutdoors #teamsony #jackrussell #womenwhoexploremichigan

Just listen.

My ex-roommate. Met on Craigslist but brothers for life. A very special person in my life!Learnt so many great things from him. I'll miss him more than Detroit probably.

Front yard miracles

Thank you all for the love and birthday wishes! The happy birthdays, cards, a lovely dinner w/ Kyle and the fam, a beautiful pearl necklace from Kyle, edible arrangements showing up at work from my second fam down in Georgia, and one of my old server friends buying me my first (legal) shot, I’d have to say it was a damn good day! Love you all!! Cheers to 21🥂

There are so many new faces around here lately, i thought it would be fun to share a little bit about myself with you all! I’m 20 years young and just graduated with my associates from college! I’m a teller at a credit union as well as a health and wellness coach on the side✨ I live with my boyfriend, Kyle, and our fur baby, Stella Mae😽 I was born in New York but I’ve lived in Michigan most of my life. I love being outside and hiking/exploring🌲 I’m an extreme introvert. And some people mistaken that for being shy, which I can be but I’m not as shy as I used to be. Being an introvert just means I’m fueled by my alone time and start to feel drained when I’m in large groups or crowds for too long. I freaking love fruit🍇, tacos🌮, and ice cream🍦 I’m obsessed with candles and fresh flowers🌷 Can you relate to any of these?! What do we have in common?!👇🏼
