Posts Tagged ‘feet’

I made THE best decision last Friday. I was thinking about how I had zero plans for the weekend and wasn’t working for once and I was itchin’ to get out of town. Not to mention, it had been four hundred and twelve degrees for the entire week and the air conditioning system in my apartment is not much of a system at all. I knew if I stayed in New York there was a chance I would kill myself. So I looked up some flights and $200 on my AmEx later I was headed to Michigan on a 6 a.m. Saturday morning flight. YES!

The above photo is my very happy feet saying hello to Lake Huron.

And below is me and my momma bear:

I got to see my mom! My very best friend Michelle picked me up at the Detroit airport and we drove three hours to Oscoda, Michigan, listening to some girly jams from back in the day. Summer road trips are the best.

Also, I got to meet my boyfriend:

Paul Bunyan! I dig him kind of a lot. Unfortunately I was wearing my pajamas at the time we met, but I think he looked past it.

We also went on a boat. Twice.

This is Champagne Hill, a total party spot. The first day we went out on the boat some people had put up some huge handmade signs that said, “Sixth Annual No Kids Weekend.” Hilarious. The second day that crazy group was gone and we got a good spot to park and listen to some country music while we just chilled on the lake. I was LOVING IT. It was so beautiful and so relaxing and I had absolutely nothing to think about except the beautiful water and the beautiful trees.

Also, you can not tell in this photo at all but Champagne Hill is totally steep and it’s just made of sand and so it is *really* hard to get to the top. You have to take a thousand breaks because with each step in the sand, your foot slides half a step back into it. When I got to the top I really wish I had my camera with me but there was no way in God’s Green Earth I was heading back up there for a second time in a row. Now that I was in Michigan for the weekend, I did not want to kill myself anymore.

And here is me having a blast in the back of the boat:

Wheeee! By the way I have not mentioned yet that on the second day I got burnt to a crispy. Also, I hope my future involves owning a boat or having very good friends who own a boat.

And a bonus picture of myself on top of a giant seagull. My sister Emily and I stopped at this play ground with all these old painted animals when we were driving back to Detroit and she took this picture of me and I think it’s awesome.

So yeah. This past weekend was priceless. And Pure Michigan.

If I had the time and energy, I would start a new blog consisting of pictures of my feet in different places. I think it could be awesome and amazing and perhaps possibly mysterious if I posted the photos without descriptions. It wouldn’t always be feet in front of a landscape, it might be feet stepping on things and feet with different shoes and for some reason I actually think this would be cool. And now that it’s on the internet, if you like your feet, I suggest you make a go for it. Who knows, there may even be a book deal in your future as they seem to be giving those away these days like they’re candy.

And now that I got that off my chest, I can talk about the weekend. This weekend was a many adventure. I got to see a lot of people I know who live in Michigan, people I didn’t know until I made friends with people in New York from Michigan too. And Michigan people are some good people. I also got to see one Michigan girl, Abby, whom I’ve known since we were babes. That is her feet in the above left with my feet above right as we both catch some rays at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday. I love Brooklyn Bridge Park and I can walk there from my new apartment and I plan on taking well advantage of that this summer. By the way if you look reallllll hard and squint your eyes just right, you can almost see the Statue of Liberty. I don’t understand how cameras work because when I sit there I can see the Statue clear as day and then when I take a picture the only thing clear as day is my feet. But it’s there, I promise.

City feet picture number two:

Miss Tan Feet on the left, Kelly Purkey, and I hung out in Central Park Sunday for some more rays (although, cloudy) and some good old-fashioned girl talk. And maybe a nap. I’m not sure what I’m lacking in my life, really. Maybe just another pair of feet.
