Top Cars for Versatile Driving Climates

If you live in a cold weather climate, you know you've got to have a reliable vehicle to get you from here to there.  Winter tires, traction control, and heated seats/steering wheels are not negotiable.  But if you live in a warm weather climate, you probably care more about a sun roof or automatic climate controls with things like a pollen filter.

While Michigan weather has never been described as a warm climate and our state is more known for it's drastic winters, we are actually a very versatile climate.  We can have 60-70 degree days in the middle of winter and snow can appear out of no where any given day.  Having a car that easily transitions, is key here.  Detroit aka "Motor City" is known as the auto capital of the world and perhaps that's for more reasons than one might think.  With that being said, below are 3 cars you NEED if you live in a climate like ours and one's you'll WANT regardless of where you live!

Bavarian Inn Lodge and Restaurant

Here is a place with only fond memories from my childhood
About Bavarian Inn Restaurant:
Celebrating 125 years of service in 2013, the Bavarian Inn Restaurant has become a Michigan landmark. Generations of diners, lodgers and tourists from around the globe have discovered true Bavarian hospitality thanks to Dorothy and her late husband William "Tiny" Zehnder. Guests experience the old-world European charm of the Bavarian Inn - whether it's the famous chicken dinners, fresh baked goods or Michigan's greatest selection of German beer. Bavarian Inn also prides itself on being one of the top consumers of Pure Michigan agricultural products. Nestled within a backdrop of authentic German architecture, a variety of shops and other fun activities, a trip to Frankenmuth would not be complete without a visit to the Bavarian Inn Restaurant.

Changing the Definition of Healthy #FitnFree16

This week I decided to start a journey in changing my definition of healthy.  

I want to live a healthier and happier lifestyle.  This is for more reasons than one but most importantly for myself personally AND for my children.  First, I want to be happy with myself on all levels and for no one but myself.  Second, I want to lead by example.  I want others to see my confidence and free spirited nature so much they gain a sense of motivation in themselves. Thirdly, I want my children to see a change in me, look up to that positivism, and learn to live their lives happy with themselves in all aspects.
