Michigan: My State, My Story
I was born and raised in Northern Michigan. It will ALWAYS be my home, and I wear that proudly every week.
I have received a necklace to review. The opinions here are 100% mine! This post contains affiliate links.
My Michigan Necklaces from Cents of Style help me share my state story and keep it close to my heart.
In 2009 I was laid off from my teaching job and had to go searching outside of Northern Michigan for a job. Because we have family in Minnesota and Kentucky, I searched there too, and I even applied for my Kentucky teaching license. After several stressful weeks, I found a blessing of a teaching job.
We ended up moving to a little town between Mt. Pleasant and Lansing- I was devastated. I was devastated for having to move, leave home, have my girls switch schools. However, I was thankful to be only a three-hour drive from home and still living within the glorious state.
Eight years later it has become a second home. We may not have family here, but we have been enveloped by a community and school that we are now proud to call our own.
I still travel north on a regular basis to visit the water’s edge of HOME. I am so content and peaceful in our move from one part of Michigan to another.
What state holds your heart, and how to you tell your state story?
