My beautiful day trip

This weekend I needed to get away to do some thinking. I’ve been wanting to visit Dow Gardens in Midland for a while. This was the perfect opportunity!
Saturday was a great day for my getaway. Perfect weather – not too hot and clear, sunny skies. The garden is only a 2 hour drive from me and it’s absolutely beautiful. A mile of walking trails and grassy areas to walk or sit and have picnics. There were a couple weddings going on as well. My main reason for wanting to go was the butterfly conservatory which unfortunately is open for 2 months in the spring so I missed it. But the flowers and waterfalls were gorgeous!

After my walk through the garden I stopped at a local tapas bar for a cocktail and overpriced French fries! I think this is what my weekends will be about – local trips and decorating. Oh and of course going to garage sales!

Take a look at the pics I took and enjoy!
