Anyone else in Michigan?
It is funny to see all of us, with W. MI being SO conservative (and Dutch- "If you aren't Dutch, you aren't much!" LOL!)
I actually couldn't stand the culture (or lack thereof) in Grand Haven. People were very preppy and materialistic and I didn't fit in, having lived as a kid in Traverse City, in the north woods. My hubby and I plan on buying land on the Leelanau peninsula- my favorite place in the whole state!
Ann Arbor here.
Metro Detroit here! Livonia area.
sigh. I miss it. I always thought I'd live there forever....raising my kids there. Not to be
You do seem very busy!! Well, enjoy your family while you can. Where do you live again?Grand Haven right now. It's been so much busier than I expected, which is why I havne't been in touch with anyone. I've had to do a lot of work while I've been here and while my family has tried to be understanding....ummmm.....they haven't been pleased. Then b/c my parents are divorced, time is very much 'split'. Dad and Cindy for a few days, then out to GH for mom and Larry, then into town to visit Grandma.....then one sister's house, then the other. Just lots of too-ing and fro-ing. Plus a few hours of work (at least) per day...yk?
We will for sure have to meet up down the road. I am planning on traveling throughout 2011 (maybe 2012 too?) so I am sure I will be near where you live at some point.
French restaurant in Kerrytown? Not too sure what that could be... but Zingerman's is definitely still going strong. A few new restaurants have landed in downtown in the last year... Grange and Jolly Pumpkin. There are definitely some good primal options for restaurants here, thank god, because I don't cook as much as I should.
I haven't been there yet, but Grand Haven is supposed to be really nice.
"Kerrytown Bistro - Extensive list of French wines at this French restaurant with a comfortably attractive interior. They've gone through some changes here, but have retooled and constructed a substantial selection of classic French food."
