Shelley Says...

on July 08, 2011

Greetings from the great state of Michigan!! We have been enjoying a wonderful week here with our family. The weather has been SO NICE and I sorta dread going back to the Nashville humidity. My in-laws live in the western part of Michigan, very close to the lakeshore. The beaches are really beautiful, and trust me when I say I am not into “lakes” as a rule. But Lake Michigan is the exception for sure. Below is a pic of Caroline at a lighthouse right down the road from David’s dad’s house. Check out the beach in the background.

Told you it was perty! We have burned the candle at both ends with mini golf, go karts, bumper boats, fireworks, cookouts, trips with the parents to the grandparents, beach trips, theme parks- and it will all culminate in my sis in laws’ wedding tomorrow night. I am still hobbling around a bit on my foot, but it is getting a little better everyday. I can’t believe I’m actually ready to put on a tennis shoe and run. I really am. I feel like a lug.

So for now, until my followup doctor’s appt. on Monday, I will just sit around here and eat more blueberry pie (best in Michigan) and ice cream. I love a good excuse.

Ya’ll have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget about our Hits project on Tuesday!!

Love, Shelley


Thanks for giving my home state a shout out. It is good to have something positive said about Michigan. God bless you!

Hi Shelley - Yes, I agree with you that the western part of Michigan is beautiful. My son, Chris, lives in Manistee, and is with the U.S. Coast Guard. He patrols those waters and he loves the beautiful beaches they have. I live on the East side of Michigan - Macomb Township. This side of our coast is wonderful as well. It looks as if you had a wonderful time here. I am from Killeen, Texas and have lived in Michigan for over 32 years. This is home now. I know what you mean about the humidity because Texas is just the worst when it comes to humidity and hot! I hope your foot his mending and you get a good report from your doctor. Take it easy and let other people spoil you while you are recuperating. Nothing worse than a bum leg. Take care.........Iris

Hey shelley - hope you had a chance to visit Herb and Evelyn while you were here. They are good friends of my parents and how I was originally introduced to your music. Take Care.
