What’s your connection to Northern Michigan?
We have lived in Traverse City since 1998. We love raising our kids here.
What are your favorite things to do Up North?
I love Northern Michigan summers and you will most likely find me on the beach or the boat. My husband and I enjoy visiting the local vineyards for wine tasting (photo was taken last June at Mari Vineyard) and we are major foodies raising two little foodies and absolutely love the restaurant scene in Traverse City and Leelanau County.
Do you have a favorite restaurant in Traverse? Or, are there a few you’re excited to try?
Our go-to date night is usually sitting in the bar area at Trattoria Stella or PepeNero. We also love Red Ginger and The Boathouse for special occasions.
Tell us how you use MyNorth.com and Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine.
I have enjoyed Traverse Magazine for years. I also receive regular emails from MyNorth.com and find it’s a great way to stay current on what fun things are happening in our area. I have used MyNorthTickets.com to purchase tickets to local shows and concerts. And I love the MyNorth.com website, especially the food and drink part where I am able to get recipes from local chefs. (Here’s the recipe directory!)
