Holland is one of my favorite cities in the Midwest, because it is on Lake Michigan, it’s home to my favorite Michigan festival, the Tulip Time Festival, which sees about 7 million tulips bloom each year in May, and it has consistently been ranked as one of the happiest towns in the United States. Famous all over North America for their stunning flower festival, unique red light house, incredible lake views, and breathtaking sunsets, Holland is a lovely place to visit during any Midwest trip.

I mentioned in this post, that we are moving to Connecticut this week! I’ve felt lots of different things about this move, but 90% of it is pure excitement to live somewhere new and different from Michigan (although I’ve heard Connecticut is a lot like Northern Michigan where I grew up, but we shall see). I’m also nervous, the good kind of nervous, about moving, because we’ve never been to Connecticut. We won’t have seen the house, the neighborhood, or anything about where we will be living until we roll up in our moving truck (thanks COVID!), yet despite the smidge of uncertainty and hesitation I’m feeling, I’m still so excited for our new adventure! Here’s what I’m looking forward to the most about moving to the East Coast.
