Sunday before work, we indulged in one of my favorite foods during an awesome NW Indiana happening — The Pierogi Festival in Whiting. Sadly, though I lived close to Detroit, I’d never been to the Hamtramck Pierogi Fest, but this one was pretty awesome — and really a big deal in NIW.
Ahh, Michigan. What a beautiful state. We just got back to Indiana on Sunday after a weeklong trek to our home state. After visiting my dad for a bit last weekend in Detroit, we traveled all the up and over the Mackinac Bridge to Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula.
Last week, I got lunch with my friend Lauren in one of Rochester’s cutest little restaurants— Half Day Cafe. Located in Rochester right across from Oakland University, this dining spot is a great place to meet up with an old friend and catch up over coffee and sandwiches.
This past Wednesday was a bright sunny day, and I had the day off, so I got outside and spent the day with my boyfriend in Ann Arbor, Mich. My favorite part about going to new places is exploring, and while I’d been to the town once before, there was still a lot to see.
Exactly one year ago, I was stepping into the streets of San Francisco for the 2013 Associated Collegiate Press Conference, where we took home two awards for our college newspaper, The Oakland Post. Aside from learning a lot about journalism, I experienced a whole new way of life and learned about myself.
I spent last weekend in San Francisco for the Associate Collegiate Press Convention. In our free time, we discovered the city. Style was all around. Skinny jeans, boots, moccasins and scarves were among top popular looks for Californians in the cool springtime weather. Colored tops and patterns were also common; navy was one of the most popular hues seen on the streets.
