Marriage Diaries: 1 Year Anniversary Weekend

If I could go back and relive the entire weekend I would do nothing different. Max and I had an amazing trip up north visiting breweries and celebrating first year of marriage!

We started off the weekend at Traverse City, visiting Jolly Pumpkin, Terra Firma, Right Brain and Rare Bird. Then we went back to our hotel room, munched on cheese and crackers, drank champagne and relaxed before heading down to the quite lively hotel bar for the Michigan State football game. Sunday, we arose bright and early and were back at it, hitting up The Workshop (best bacon EVER!!) and The Filling Station in Traverse before heading even further north to Shorts Brewing in Bellaire. Once we checked into Shanty Creek Resort we were pretty beat and laid low the rest of the evening, looking out at our awesome view of the northern Michigan colors (even though pictures don’t do it justice!). Monday morning we ate at a local diner (chocolate chip pancakes!!) and leisurely drove back to Grand Rapids.

The trip was everything we intended: relaxed & fun. It was the kind of weekend where nothing got to us. There was no bickering, it was just a fun husband & wife road trip, enjoying each other’s company and reminiscing on our entire relationship together. We relived some pretty funny stories from college and talked about the things we remembered most about our wedding day. It was perfect.

Shall we visit Michigan’s east side breweries for our second anniversary?!? Maybe…
