Yep, we’d call our evaluation of our lives pretty exceptional. This is #MiMittenState, and we’re proud to call it home.



  1. I didn’t know much about MI even though I grew up in Chi…after spending weeks and weeks visiting the place…man. I got a good look at the dirty D, K-zoo, Ypsilanti, Muskegon, Ravenna, the whole western coast and most of the UP from Wisconsin to Whitefish Bay…I was staggered by the sunrises and sets, the social openness of the people I met, and the miles and miles of beautiful countryside.

  2. Very nice, Michigan has a lot to offer. I spent 8 years there, found the people to be warm and friendly, began my interest in photography there. Enjoyed all seasons, had a chance to see many major cities there while at conventions from Detroit to the U.P., Kalamazoo to Traverse City, Battle Creek to Escanaba. Sweet memories. ☺
