Surprise 15th Anniversary Trip

Have you ever been on a surprise trip? You know, one someone has planned for you and you have no idea where you are going?? Well, I am going on a surprise trip this Thursday. My husband is surprising me with a three-day get away to somewhere to celebrate our 15th Anniversary which is July 22. There are a couple of things I know…the dogs are staying home with our doggy sitter, it will be warm (mid-80’s), we are driving to the destination, and I need walking shoes. Hmmmm….where could I be going???

Last year my husband surprised me with an Anniversary trip and we ended up at a Bed and Breakfast in Ludington, MI. Our first stop was Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids. We hadn’t been there before and we both loved it!!! Such beautiful gardens and butterflies.


From there we continued onto Ludington to the Candlelite Inn Bed and Breakfast. I loved this place and would recommend it- excellent food, service, value, and cleanliness! We would definitely go back.

While staying in Ludington, we visited one of my favorite little towns called Pentwater. I love Pentwater for its unique stores and restaurants located along Lake Michigan. We’ve been to Pentwater a few times and it doesn’t get old! We also watched a few Lake Michigan sunsets from Stearns Park in Ludington.


I’d heard of Manistee, MI so we decided to drive and check it out. The riverwalk along the Manistee River was beautiful, but the town itself was a disappointment. It’s not someplace we would visit again, but it seems to be a good place for boaters!

This was an amazing trip, and I was so proud of my husband for all he did to make it special!!! Thursday can’t get here soon enough as I’m very excited to head to my surprise destination!!! Looking forward to sharing my trip with you next week…stay tuned!
