Vacation Things, Part 1.
My my how times have changed. There was a point where I used to upload vacation photos to the blog while I was still on vacation! Remember?! I bet you might. I totally wish I had the time to do that, but now I find myself doing it two weeks later, whomp whomp. #momlife
You’ve probably seen these pictures a thousand times before, or at least close to one hundred since I think this is the sixth(?) year I’ve shared the same vacation. But it’s my favorite! Favoritest place ever. We go to Boyne City, Michigan (and have for my whole liiiife) and it’s just the best. A leeeeettle different when you have a baby, but I think this has been the thing I’ve been most excited to share with Max. This probably part one of three or four, because I’m a maniac.
P.S. a bunch of you have been saying you want a “where to stay/eat/play” post for northern Michigan and while I’ve gone there for 30+ years now we do a bunch of the same things. But I think that I can throw it together if you want it? Let me know!

(These pics are a mix between iphone 6 photos, photos from my DSLR (I use a nikon d800 + 24-70mm lens) and photos from my samsung nx300 mirrorless camera (which is fab). I ended up switching between what was convenient at the time (read: where the baby placement was in my life at the moment).
