Boone is King of the Hill around here, no doubt about it. But for all you cat lover’s out there, he’s agreed to share the spotlight with Bob this morning. We tolerate Bob because he acts like a dog.
Lookin’ pretty chill there, Bob. Nice work.

And the children were all nestled, all snug in their beds, while visions of weddings danced in their heads. Or something like that, lol.
But seriously, I really do think of my things as my children. I refer to them by name and worry about them while they're out. I mean genuinely wake-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night-and-mentally-go-through-where-everyone-is kind of worry - and I ALWAYS ask them if they had a good time when I pick them up.
They’re patiently waiting for you to invite them to your party and l promise they’ll be on their best behavior.
This little burgundy beauty just joined the family and she’s anxious to go to her first party! What a doll! #burgundywedding #lounge #suckerforacuteface #serradellaweddings #vintage #styling #vintagerentals #upnorthwedding #nomiwedding #charlevoix #traversecity #petoskey #upnorthlife #engaged
Few things have caused more excitement than our newest addition to inventory. We're branching out with the "coddiwomple" subsidiary of Serradella. Our new Bell Tent will be arriving next week! She's a huge "6m ZIG" and at 19 feet across will create the perfect space for a lounge at your event or . . . how about an adorable/funky/off the wall bridal suite where the bride and her bridesmaids can chill and get ready? Fully furnished with Serradella goodies, of course!
She'll also be available for glamping - wedding night under the canvas sky anyone?
Stay tuned for all the cool ways we plan to use her and for announcements about other glamping adventures!
Wedding Showcase from noon-3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, at The Talcott Center in Walloon! Meet professionals, take a peak into The Talcott and see demonstrations and lie Pinterest inspiration. $5 at the door. No preregistration required.
Check out the shenanigans happenin’ over at my friend Kalin Franks Sheick’s! A little bird told me they have their goods and wares displayed on some awesome furniture! And that hot chocolate bar? It’s the bomb!!
We interrupt this #engagementseason to bring you Opening day of deer season. The most sacred of holidays in Northern Michigan. For a lot of people, it trumps everything . . . emergency surgery, someone’s funeral, the birth of your child. Come hell or high water, you’re in the woods on November 15th. Likely before the sun comes up, waiting patiently for the #deerofalifetime to make his appearance.
I get that there’s also a lot of people who don’t get it. And that’s ok. Regar...dless of how you feel (I’m either hardcore or a schmuck for killing Bambi) l know you can appreciate that first and foremost, for me, it’s a family tradition. I was probably eight years old the first time I trudged to the woods and sat in the blind with my dad. That’s his rifle next to mine in this picture. He’s carried the same one for over 50 years and hunted the same property for almost 70. Hunting has been one of our greater father/daughter gigs.
But I’m missing “the opener” this year and that’s made me a little melancholy this morning. (Although sitting here listening to the rain pound the roof, maybe I’m not all that sad I’m still in my snug, warm house). It’s all good though - there’s still a couple weeks left and I’m leaving in two days to meet the hubster at his deer camp in the UP. And sometime before the season’s over, I’ll find time to make the drive to the family farm to once again hike into the woods and sit with my dad. It doesn’t get any better than that.
