We always save a few empty bottle/jars and lids to make sunscreen and moisturizers. One of us has extremely sensitive skin.

Congratulations to the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians who were recognized as a sovereign nation on May 27, 1980 by the United States government.
Some of you will remember the homes built in the 1960’s. Well this cottage/home had not been updated at all and still had dark paneling and avocado green carpeting until Sunset Construction transformed it. Scott Crandall with the help of his son, Adam, and wife, Bonnie, completely remodeled this Intermediate Lake cottage and added on a room with lots of windows on the lake side. It’s now an inviting cozy modern retreat. See the whole article in our current issue.
In our current issue, we are spotlighting the vitality of the Downtown Traverse City area. Don’t miss this section.
We have a part-time position available. Please email your resume to [email protected]

We are sad to learn that the fireworks display over West Grand Traverse Bay in celebration of our Independence Day has been canceled.
“Air Hug💕” We have a new word in our vocabulary. Here’s how it goes. Fresh air, 6 ft distance and a little exercise (in this case it was a hike to the hippie tree) with people you love...followed with a goodbye ‘air hug.’ We did not know what an “air hug” was before Covid19.

Hope you are enjoying one of the hundred+ trails in our beautiful region.
Our beautiful Spring issue is a wonderful resource. We hope everyone who is not working is staying home. Remember you are not stuck at home; you are safe at home. For those who are working in essential positions, we are most grateful for you and pray you stay healthy. We should all go outside and enjoy some fresh air and go for a walk every day if you are able (keeping clear of everyone, of course!) Our five county region is beautiful!
Fresh air, sunshine, a healthy dose of vitamin D after a hike on local trails and enjoying a beautiful shoreline view. Of course, staying healthy and respecting social distancing all afternoon.
We heard a comment from a truck driver delivering food to stores, and other semi drivers also deliver supplies to hospitals, auto parts to garages so cars can be fixed, and everything else. Truck drivers have very long days and almost no place to get a healthy hot meal. Semi Trucks do not fit through drive-thru lanes and those restaurants will not serve anyone who is not in a vehicle. No wonder they are not feeling appreciated at all.
We want to encourage restaurants to serve everyone who walks up to a drive through lane across the country. Semi drivers may need to use a restroom too. We are thankful for them and pray they stay safe and healthy and enjoy a hot meal every day.
The Spring Equinox is today March 19, 2020. The sun is directly above the equator. We were taught that day and night are equal on the vernal equinox￼ although there are actually a couple additional minutes of day due to many factors including gravity. But rumor has it that this will be the earliest Spring in 124 years. Rumors are not always true, but sometimes they are.
Another fun Suds n Snow under sunny blue skies and almost 50°F. 1970’s theme today with mushy snow underfoot. Pick up our Spring issue for other events you won’t want to miss in Traverse Bay Lifestyles Magazine.
Excellent play! It’s full of energy and passion for learning and discovery of the night sky. We loved it and highly recommend it. The performers were outstanding. Directed by Phil Murphy, this play has a wonderful cast. Written by Lauren Gunderson. Call the box office 231-947-2210 oldtownplayhouse.com
AS A DATE NIGHT SUGGESTION: It’s still a bit chilly for a picnic in March, so after work pick up your date and stop by a restaurant in TC or along your way to TC. Order dessert and plan to leave it in the car during the play. Then off to Old Town Playhouse and at 7:15ish head downstairs and order the special featured drink from April. She creates one for every Old Town Theater Main Stage performance. Relax in your very comfortable spacious seat and enjoy your cocktail (or wine, beer, pop, coffee, cocoa...) and enjoy the play. Later, share your delicious dessert over a terrific conversation about the play you just saw and remember to share stories you may have heard of past generations of grandma’s, and aunts, ...
While walking downtown Traverse City we noticed a window display. It got our vote for the best window display in the whole five counties this winter. Well done Liana’s; you caught our attention.
Discovered a wonderful second location for Landmark Books today. The First Ladies Cook Book has a recipe from Mrs. Lincoln. I wish I still had kids at home; I would send them on an adventure with one of the many books in the youth section. Landmarks Books is in Building 50, and now inside Wilson’s Antiques in Acme. Congratulations Landmark Books. Paul Stebleton, owner, writes our book review in every quarterly issue. www.landmarkbookstc.com
