So much is in the air this weekend!

Two of my favorite Summer festivals are this weekend-luckily, one is Saturday, and one is Sunday so I, (and you) don’t have to choose! It’s the best smelling week of the year on Mackinac Island, and the best weekend of the summer to shop in St. Ignace. And lastly, a chance to hit the links for a great cause! Get out there and make the most of your time off!
