Grand Hotel – Photos

Grand Hotel is situated on the southwestern bluff of Mackinac Island overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and – in the distance – the Mackinac Bridge. From the front porch – the world’s largest at 660 feet – guests can look down at the well-kept gardens and relax and enjoy the ambiance of “somewhere in time”. It is no wonder that hollywood has chosen to come here more than once. Indeed, like a classic movie, Grand Hotel is larger that life.

What is Mackinac Island’s biggest export?
—
Mackinac Island is iconic for its Victorian houses, horse drawn carts and bicycles. But what really makes the island tick, drives its economy and has secured its place in Michigan tourism, is the fudge.
—
This island, with only 500 residents, is home to more than a dozen fudge shops ready to serve the 1 million annual visitors. On peak summer tourist days, visitors collectively buy over 10,000 pounds of fudge per day. To keep up with this intense demand, the island imports 10 tons of sugar and 1 ton of butter every week.

We're so thrilled to feel the invigorating sunshine and the warmer air of spring in Petoskey. It's the season of rebirth, growth, and movement. Bikes have always represented such freedom and joy to us, and working on Mackinac Island inspired us to make them a big part of our daily lives. Enjoy these warmer days, air up those tires, and get out for a ride.⁠ To see the original painting, stop by latitude45 in Petoskey!

True story: I looked so happy with my bloomfieldcreamery ALMOND BRITTLE & MACKINAC ISLAND FUDGE ICE CREAM that a couple strolling along the sidewalk asked me what I was eating 😅🍨

Y’all have to try this flavor! 🥇 The vanilla ice cream is silky and fragrant, the almond brittle is crunchy and nutty, and the Mackinac Island fudge is chocolatey and decadent 🍫💕

🥢 
🥢

📍 Pasadena & Westwood in Los Angeles

Well, I am officially back to work and looking back 6 weeks ago, the thought of going back to work made me nauseous.  How could I step back into a role that made me face my husbands death over and over again?  Thats what I do for a living. I am a critical care nurse practitioner. Death and dying are unfortunately a huge part of my job. I take care of the sickest of the sick. I have end of life conversations with families. I run codes on patients. And just 6 weeks ago, I was on the other side as the family who had to see her husband being resuscitated by my co-workers after he unexpectedly and suddenly through a lethal arrhythmia while driving home from work. I had to watch my best friend, soul mate, and the love of my life get coded. And after over 45 minutes without regaining a pulse after immediate CPR and being defibrillated over 10 times, I had to make the call to stop resuscitative efforts.

But walking back into work and into my role, I have this new found strength. I picked up were I left off 6 weeks ago and I went back to the job I love with a little more grit, perspective, and understanding from the other side of the table. My work family has surrounded me with so much love and support and I am truly grateful to be back at work and trying to muddle through finding my new normal.

The first night I came home from work was really hard. I didn’t anticipate the feelings I would have coming home from a “normal day at work” to not having Scott at home waiting for me. Usually he would just be getting off work when I got home and those are the moments we would look forward to after a long work day.  We just looked forward to spending the night together. And I don’t have that anymore. So now I come home, to a quiet house and it really hit me hard. I still don’t get it. I don’t think I ever will. But for now, I just have to fight through each day and reward myself for the little accomplishments + victories. I made it back to work. I can function at work and be a competent provider with a lot to offer my patients, their families, and my co-workers. And for that, I will give myself some grace for the sad moments post work because it WILL get better. ❤️

I had the best time at grandhotelmichigan it was like a dream. Shoutout to my significant other for the fabulous and much needed getaway, while also capturing the moment! (Ps the next picture I’m gonna post is so cute💕)
