Grand taste 6

Hi guys! I've missed you all and sharing here on the blog. Life has been particularly busy lately as I've been working on starting up a business for the past several months! *More on that in a later post, but that's why things have been a wee bit sparse around here. ;)

This past weekend, Ben and I had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful evening out together at the Grand Taste Premier event, courtesy of Meijer. This is their second year hosting the event and my first time being invited. All I can say is WOW. I wasn't really sure what to expect but I had the very best time! The Grand Taste is an event held at the Women's LPGA tournament in Grand Rapids and is hosted by Meijer. There are 'tons' of grand rapids area restaurants, breweries, and vendors there that offer small plates of their delicious specialties. It's basically all-you-can-eat but really, with so many businesses represented, I hardly needed to visit the same booth twice. In fact, I didn't even make it to every vendor before my tummy was filled to max capacity.

The scenery was perfect of course, overlooking the country club and putting greens. And the weather cooperated marvelously at a balmy 84 degrees and breezy. Seriously, the perfect Michigan night. We stayed from about 7-9 and then left to head to our hotel for the evening. The 'only' thing missing from the event was dancing! ;) That might have kept me out a bit longer.

I wore this beautiful Maeve dress from Anthropologie, one of my birthday gifts from Ben this year. It's quickly becoming my favorite go-to dress. Light, breezy, and perfect for any summer outing. I just love it. I paired it with my faithful black leather Steve Madden sandals and was comfy all evening.

I hope you're all doing well! We're unofficially officially in summer here in Michigan and the days are long and hot once again. I've never been more happy as summer is my favorite season. I think I can literally feel the sun reviving my vitamin D hungry soul. Winston and I spend loads of time outside, on walks, or in the backyard playing. Things are blooming, everything is green, and we're at our local splash pad on repeat. :) Speaking of Winston, he'll be TWO next month. Crazy. So excited to start planning his birthday party. What are YOU up to this summer?

Chat soon! Thanks for stopping by.
