a wedding + ArtPrize

If I could live anywhere in Michigan, it would definitely be Grand Rapids. I really love it there; I feel at home. It is vibrant, artsy, friendly and loaded with character, and has an array of amazing restaurant choices (many of which source from local farmers and offer vegan options). Also, my sister and brother-in-law live there :)

This weekend my hubby and I headed there for a college friend's wedding (where i got to meet up with Maggie for the first time since we were neighbors 3.5+ years ago). Lucky for us, ArtPrize was going on while we were there, so we got to take in some incredible art on Sunday, though only just a tiny portion of it.. there are 1517 total pieces in just within 3 square miles of the city! The horsey one below was my fave. Amazingness.

It seems every post lately is a weekend recap.. I really would like to work on that, especially considering I have so many post ideas in my head right now. I need to learn from my hubby's incredibly disciplined ways!

You have such a great eye, and I don't mind your recaps at all!

Oh man, if my husband was a blogger, it would be all out craziness and he would totally outblog me all the time.

My husband keeps telling me to warm up to Grand Rapids because it could be a place we live someday. This post helped. :)

I grew up in Grand Rapids and most of my family still lives there. It's always a treat to return 'home'. ArtPrize is on our list of things to do during a return trip. And, there are also lots of great antique shops and an Anthropologie now!
