Mom Life Mondays: Blog Link-Up #7 (Grand Traverse Resort)

Happy Monday, friends! And Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in Canada! Hope you’re all rested from a relaxing weekend.

We just got back from a last minute trip up north to Traverse City, MI! My husband is a huge nature lover and his favorite season is Fall. He’s been looking forward to taking a drive to see the color change, so we made a weekend trip out of it and took the kids up to Grand Traverse Resort & Spa.


We haven’t been to the resort since our dating days, so it was fun to take the boys and see the town and beautiful landscape all around Traverse City. All of us ate well and (mostly) slept well all weekend! It was so nice to have the weekend off from cooking! We had brunch at the two restaurants at the resort. Sunday brunch at Aerie was nothing short of perfect. The view was absolutely breathtaking and the food was so delicious.

The kids (and my husband) had a great time at the pool and arcade. It was a bit chillier than we were expecting, but the drive around the Traverse City area was so peaceful and breathtaking. I’m so glad we decided to take the drive up there, it was a really enjoyable trip.

Don’t forget to share your blog posts in the link up below! Today, we have Corina from Now THAT I Can Do, Mama co-hosting our link-up! You can check out her post for the week, and she’ll be hosting the list of blogs on her site as well! I look forward to reading your posts!

Have you heard of blog link ups? Join us for our Mom Life Mondays link up below!

What is a blog link-up you ask? It’s a regular post that I’ll have here on Mondays (not sure if it’ll be weekly or monthly or bimonthly yet), but a place you can come to find the latest and greatest blog posts about all things motherhood.

If you’re a blogger, please feel free to drop a link to a current motherhood-related blog post. I just ask that you follow the instructions detailed below!

As we get further into it, I’ll come up with topics that will keep us to a theme, but for now, please feel free to post current / new links related to anything and everything mom-life!

We also started a AM (Mondays 11EST) and PM (Thursdays 9EST) chat loop on Instagram! Please follow: Morgan @morganmanages for the AM chat and JeeYoung (me!) @simplyeveryblog & Shannon @memoirsofaworkingmom for the PM chat and join us for a fun chat loop!

Have a fabulous week, loves!
