How many of you have heard the Pure Michigan commercials on your radio? The ones that are voiced by Tim Allen? Do you listen in your car and dream of vacation? When I was in Chicago, EVERY TIME one would come on, I would listen intently, get teary eyed about being "home" and think of all the things we were going to do on our next Michigan vacation.
Now that we live in the state, one would think that we'd get sick of the commercials or that we'd be so used to being here by now that they wouldn't tug on our heartstrings as much. Wrong! We still love them and can just picture the golf courses, the ski hills, the beaches every single time. We are truly meant to be here in this great state. (And if that makes me a sucker for a good advertising campaign, then I prefer to be of the cherry variety.)
Maybe, even if you've never been here or even if you think I'm a crazy person for living in this tundra of a state, just maybe a few of these will also tug at your heartstrings. I adore my state, and I hope that we'll always have the opportunity to live here, play here, and breathe it all in. Nothing better than Pure Michigan!
