There are so many places in Michigan that bring a big smile to my face — from gorgeous, sandy beaches to unique dives and rockin’ wineries.
Often when I think of places in my state that I love, it requires getting in my car and driving for a while. But what about being a tourist in my own town?
I did just that a few weeks ago when I went to check out the almost 3,000 tulips blooming in a local cemetery, the White Chapel Memorial Cemetery in Troy, Mich., just a few miles away from me. I know, I know…sounds a tad morbid, right? Well, let me tell you – it’s one of the most beautiful and peaceful cemeteries I’ve ever seen.
Kinley and I had a great time checking out the beautiful tulips and I was able to snap some fun photos for the cemeteries’ photo contest. Here are a few of my favorites:

I was so happy to have finally taken some time to discover beauty I didn’t even knew existed just a few miles away.
