Michigan Bound

I'm going to Michigan today and I don't think I have been this excited to go home ever. I haven't been back in over a year, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. But more-so, there's a lot of fun plans in store.

I get to meet my cousin Kristen's newborn, Ella. Being an only child, Kristen was the closest thing that I had to a sister growing up. In fact, sometimes we even called each other that. The fact that she has a daughter now blows my mind and I cannot wait to meet her!

I also am looking forward to seeing my Grandpa. I mentioned him last year in my "What I'm Thankful For" Thanksgiving post, so some of you may remember that he has Supranuclear Palsy. I called him on his birthday (which happened to be the day his first grand-daughter, baby Ella, was born!) and it was so hard. His speech has gotten so much slower since I've last seen him and I know it's possible that the next time I see him he will not be able to talk at all. I'm really learning to appreciate the time I get to spend with him.

And then we have the main reason for this trip. A wedding! Yes, another wedding. My fourth one in three weeks! My good friend is getting married on Saturday. Jordan and I are going as guests but I know a part of me is going to be tempted to shoot some video. I'm going to bring my camera just in case. ;]

You can follow along with all the fun over on Instagram (username: julieannart). Keep an eye out for a fun giveaway tomorrow! And I'll be back Tuesday. xo JA
