A Very Happy Birthday to Me

Wes took me to Saugatuck for my birthday this year. We ate dinner at the Belvedere Inn. It is a beautiful old house that has been converted into a restaurant. The food was really delicious. Not only was the Filet Mignon ‘melt in your mouth’ good, but the broccoli and potato gratin were also delicious. How often do you remember the sides you had with dinner? I was also gifted both of my hands to eat dinner with…My Mom and Dad were really sweet and drove out to Saugatuck and took Fierce for a walk around the stores while we ate. They also left some birthday money for me to go shopping with the next day. Thanks Mom and Dad!




After picking up Fierce again, we headed to Newnham SunCatcher Inn. It was the cutest little Victorian house with stain glass in each window. Our suite was on the main floor and super cute with all of the old fashioned decorations. The owners were very personable and the breakfast they served the next morning was tasty. We had a meaty omelet, a carrot cake muffin and a fruit bowl along with orange juice and coffee. Fierce sat on my lap and stole all the attention from the other guests seated at the table.

Full and so completely spoiled, we went shopping around the quaint town to top off the weekend. It is really fun to find clothing in Saugatuck because most of the boutiques have unique items that once they sell out, the items are not replaced. I purchased an adorable pair of black gloves and also a black lace skirt perfect for the fall weather. I can’t wait to wear them!

Thank you Wes for a great birthday getaway!
