Scenes from the North Shore

Ship coming into Duluth

For Memorial Day weekend, the Mr. and I decided to take an extra, extra long weekend and celebrate all of the milestones we are having during 2015. We will both turn 30 (him already, me still clutching to 29!), will celebrate our five-year anniversary and will be welcoming our first child. That's a lot in a four-month span! With me getting closer to my expected due date, we decided we would rather drive instead of fly somewhere. The other thing on our mind while planning this trip? We wanted to relax!

Duluth, Minn.

We decided the North Shore and Lake Superior would be the perfect getaway and it did not disappoint. From the scenery to the weather, we had no trouble filling our days or not filling them at all. Here is a glimpse into the weekend. Some of our favorites? Palisade Head (that cliff!) and Voyageur Brewing Company in Grand Marais, Minn. Even though I couldn't partake in tasting the brews at Voyageur, the decor, food and live music was enough to entertain me, so much so that we went twice.
