Travels

Be a Tourist in Your Own Town.

Hello, my friends! A happy Monday to you all! I know that I’ve said this quite a bit in my last few posts, but hellllooooo fall! The weather is just about perfect, as of late. Especially for taking beautiful afternoon walks, which is what Bobby and I chose to do, yesterday!

Some days, you just need to get out of the house. Sunday was one of those days for Bobby and me. We live in such a beautiful town, but we don’t always see it with appreciative eyes. Even having lived here for only two months, I’ve already begun to grow accustomed to this place I used to find so new and exciting. Which isn’t a bad thing per say, I’ve begun to feel more at home here, but I think there also is something to say about treating where you live as a vacation destination. I mentioned this to Bobby, and he said, “Traverse City IS a vacation destination!” Which is totally true, but I like to think that we can treat wherever we live as though it was a place where we chose to vacation.

We went on a walk in the woods and had such a splendid time. It was wonderful to be out of the house and enjoy the beauty that our town had to offer. Being surrounded by trees, breathing in the September air, and seeing many a cute dog…I don’t know that it could’ve been any better.

The leaves are beginning to change color, and they’ve started collecting on the ground and I can envision chai tea lattes, trips to the pumpkin patch, and Halloween.

It’s a beautiful town that I live in, and I want to start appreciating it more. This can apply to everyone and everywhere, we just have to become more mindful of such things. What makes where you live unique? How can you begin to see it in a new light? Begin exploring your town and see what it has to offer! ❤

Thank you so much for reading, friends! I hope that you enjoyed this little post!

XOXO,

Mattie Mae
