It’s about that time again.
I started packing.
I’ve had my last hurrahs (for now).
Two months ago when I arrived in the USA it seemed like I had so many days to fill. Now that it’s over, I’m wondering how did it go so fast?! But, I’m ready. I miss my Magic Man and my fur babies. The three of them are really cute and I’m beyond excited to feast my eyes upon their glorious bodies. I’m such a lucky girl.
If you’ve been following me awhile now, you’re probably wondering who the heck that white cat is?! Well, his name is Cosmo and he’s Shanti’s new brother. We got him a few months ago and he’s adjusting very well to his new technicolor home and sister. We’re finally back to a family of four. It feels much better now. It’s been a year without my Orion boy and I still miss him every single day. Sorry, though, I digress.
One of the sweetest things I got to do this summer was attend the opening of my friend’s brand new cafe called the Electric Eye Cafe. It’s a cute coffee shop with rotating roasters and a friendly-chic-whimsical vibe adorned with quirky written signs.
If you’re in the Ann Arbor area, it’s a great place to check out. I know there’s heaps of coffee shops, but this place is unique, and well, a friend’s place is always so comfy, isn’t it?! It’s also in a great location on Main Street and there’s plenty of parking. Just go ahead then. Do it. You know you love the coffee. Say ‘hi’ to Keelan for me.
Another place I never miss when I’m in Ann Arbor is the good old Fleetwood Diner. It’s been around for decades and it is quite a special place. You don’t want to miss it on your trip to this wonderful tree town. I assure you it won’t disappoint.
I took my mom here for lunch on my last day in town. We had a great time sitting along the street watching the Ann Arbor life pass us by. I also hoovered my ‘hippie hash’ like I hadn’t eaten in 10 years. Mmmmm. It’s just so delicious, and I’m not even usually a fan of potatoes that much. But, these hash browns cooked with tomatoes, green peppers, broccoli, onions, and feta cheese are something to dream about.
One of the best nights I had in my two month long visit was with a bunch of co-workers for an epic dance night out on the town. We were on a serious mission to tear up the dance floor, and well, I reckon we did a fantastic job. I’ve made some new amazing friends this summer in Michigan and uncountable good memories. My cup runneth over, dear friends. . .
I even got to hug one of my most favorite people in the whole wide world who was only in town for one night. We hadn’t seen each other in four years and it was great to recharge on her super vibrations. . .
In a few days I will be all packed up and time traveling back to my beloved Magic Man. It has been monsoon season in Goa, so I’ll be arriving to the greenest, lush jungle surrounding my rainbow penthouse. I will cherish the good times and good vibes of this pure Michigan summer and I’ll see you all on the flip side. . .
