I am a Michigan girl through and through. I grew up in West Michigan. My parents grew up in West Michigan. My husband grew up in West Michigan. And now we are raising our two fun-loving, energetic kids in… wait for it… West Michigan. It is a great place to call home. There is a pride all its own when you live in Michigan. You get to hold up your hand as a map whenever you want to show someone where exactly in Michigan you live.
