I went on a whirlwind 24-hour trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan this week for meetings at Zondervan. (Yes, I got to meet other Bible nerds like me.) When I woke up, it was snowing! So, I joined the Japanese tourists outside the Holiday Inn to snap some pictures.
Now that I’ve been to Michigan (if you can say that staying the night in a hotel and sitting in a conference all day as “being in Michigan”) I only have 2 more states to go. Minnesota and Alaska. My friends and I have had plenty of debates on what the requirements are for checking off a state. A lay-over in an airport does not count. You have to at least get outside and breathe in that state’s air. I’m a bit foggy on North Dakota, Montana and Idaho… but with 6 drives cross country, I think I’ve got them covered. (Mom… Dad… can you back me up??)
