I'm totally loving the new Pure Michigan ad campaign that's been running in major markets. I got chills the first (second, third, fourth, fifth...) time I watched them. Not only do they feature Michigan in the summer which is truly heaven on earth, but they include the music from "The Notebook" trailer which ensures that you tear ducts are turned on before the narrative even begins. (That calm, soothing voice is non other than Detroit native Tim Allen.)
Here are some of my favorite Pure Michigan moments with some of my favorite people:
With Catch Up brother and sister at Cottage Weekend on Gull Lake, MI:
Digging life at this moment
If docks could talk...we'd all be fucked.
Top of the Dunes with @awshannahan, Lake Michigan in the background:
Prepping out in Saugatuck, MI:
Walloon Lake, MI, where my ashes will one day be scattered. Watch out water table.
"Pi-High Til You Die." Which may turn out to be when you fall off the motorized rides outside Coral Gables in Saugatuck at 2am.
You can imagine my total shock that so far no one from the Pure Michigan ad campaign has inquired about using the picture above - or this footage from our Super Hero party on Gull Lake, MI last weekend. (The only thing that would make this even more Michigan is if Charles was smoking a Black & Mild instead of waving a giant sword.)
