Fresh eats, faces and places 👌June you were a blast from end to end. We adored hosting our design and dog obsessed @airbnb guests the lovely @brosier_ and @degroffdesign this weekend. Check out how they are making GR even more awesome with their larger than life artistic talents. Our garden beds got a #whatnottowear level makeover thanks to @flynnpower the Carmindy of lanscaping. We celebrated our hot new look with a wild caught Alaskan sockeye salmon dinner by @mi_life_afield followed by a #sundayfunday Torch Lake cruise... Feelin’ like the luckiest and loving it. Welcome July!💥🇺🇸 @ Fieldguide Farmhouse

Honored and having a blast collaborating with Cellar 1914 / Shooks Farm offering interior design consultation for their winery's new tasting room and courtyard.
They reached out when each of their wives, three of my dearest friends, were providing design input and had differing ideas. Haha!
Our goal is to tell the story of a centennial farm through a visitor's experience by what they see, feel, smell taste, touch and hear. Numerous materials have been up-cycled from the farm to create the interior of this space. Beams, boards, metal and art.
The crown, baseboards, window and door trim are original to the farm and are bunk boards with raw and unique edges from where cows have rubbed and shaped them over 100 years. I was super skeptical about this trim choice when they presented the enormous 16'x8" boards and with their incredible carpentry skills it's my favorite component. What'da I know!
There are so many more cool features yet to come such as Grandpa's work bench, Ampersand Lettering Lab mural, this gorgeous barn beam chandelier and vintage stamped fruit bins.
Don't miss it if you're in our area this summer and I can't wait to meet you here for a glass! Cheers!

Small project we did today...

Blue bird skies and being good boys 🐶 This photo is from a year ago, on March 3, 2018 when our neighbors came over let the pups play in the sunshine so naturally, day drinking ensued☀️This post is in honor of their beloved German Pointer Tucker who passed away in his sleep this weekend. We are going to miss him- waving hello from our porch or yard on their daily evening walks, his energetic wiggly greetings and I know when the school bus rolls by he’ll be excitedly barking from above ❤️

Feels like pixie dust has been sprinkled on us with recent features and what’s in store for 2019 ✨AMAZINGLY kind, outdoors and dog loving couples celebrating their matrimony here 🥂@yourwanderingroots yoga + outdoor recreation retreat August 1st thru 4th, spots open up after Thanksgiving! Thirdly, the talented photographer @justinemontigny has featured my sister’s wedding on her blog and the link to it is in our profile. Check it out because the photos are SO stunning 😍 Last but not least, we are one follower away from reaching 2,000 which I vividly remember having 1 two years ago and this milestone seeming way out of reach. Not that our value is based on # of followers, rather authentic engagement but I’m a numbers gal so I’m giddy with anticipation to see those zeros. Most of all, THANK YOU, each and every freakin one of you, for being here and may some pixie dust spread on you 🙏😘✨these flower girls tho #icanteven pc: @justinemontigny

“I love Eggs Benedict. I hate big weddings with everybody staring. I’d like to get married on a weekday while everybody’s at work. And when I ride off into the sunset I want my own horse.” ⠀
- Maggie Carpenter, ‘Runaway Bride’ ⠀

We’re now offering week day, weekend and off-season wedding venue rental packages- no running required ;)⠀

I was 15 when I saw Runaway Bride in theaters and immediately wanted a kick boxing bag and to live in a small town. Twenty years later both of those dreams came true. I got the kick boxing bag for Christmas in 1999 and although it was a short-lived craze it shook the entire house when we used it. ⠀

Today, the world’s best small town, Central Lake, is home and like Maggie, I have the best girl friends. The three of us depart today to run Michigan’s @ragnarrelay race a two-day overnight run spanning 200 miles from Muskegon to Traverse City. You can follow along for all of the pain, glory and stinky van fun on our stories. ⠀

Wherever you run, may every mile be worth your while. ⠀

... and so together, they built a life they loved... this hand built fieldstone farmhouse and thoughtfully landscaped lawn attracts creative and talented couples who build their own arbors, etch wine glasses, construct picture frames, forge for driftwood, design signs and carve candle holder centerpieces just to name a few. As I was composing this post Pete dropped by and he grew up here from 1942-early 60s. Watch our stories to see more there.
