Tuesday Travels: Happy Summer Solstice!

Here in America – and the rest of the northern hemisphere – today is the summer solstice: the longest day of the year, the official beginning of summer, and a great time to plan a summer vacation. If you're looking for a coastal getaway, you should consider the northwestern part of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, an area rife with beaches, dunes, lighthouses, wineries, golf courses, and resort towns. Besides featuring this region – which happens to be one of my favorite parts of the Great Lakes State, where my husband and I spend our summers – on my American Nomad blog, I've also covered it for My Itchy Travel Feet as well as National Geographic Traveler. So, read all about it, enter the Moon Michigan giveaway at My Itchy Travel Feet, and pack your bags for this incredibly stunning and diverse place.

I really do need to leave my house a little more often--though, in my defense, I have been to the Mission Point Light house! :)

Well, Bridget, if you've been to the Old Mission Point Lighthouse, you HAVE ventured a bit from your house... but then I, too, need to leave my house more often.

By the way, I tried commenting on your most recent writing post, but I can't seem to do it anymore. Bummer. So, I'll comment here:

It seems you've learned quite a lot lately. ;-) I hope to attain such enlightenment someday, too. While I do love my stories, worlds, and characters - and certainly feel a sense of euphoria while immersed in writing - I still spend too much time judging myself through others' eyes.
