Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island is one of my favorite places in the entire world.  It’s gorgeous, tons of fun, and I’m lucky enough to have family there.  We just sailed the choppy seas of Lake Huron to pay a visit to my sister and her clan.  Luckily, we had the Arnold Line Ferry to help us brave the waves.  If I do say so myself, the Arnold Line is the best ferry in the world- it’s my dad’s!

We had a grand old time staying at the Grand Hotel, and Prentiss and Meredith had the great opportunity to play with their cousins. Prentiss and her cousin Tilly treated us to countless shows and plays.

    Hi Katie,
    I’ve been a huge fan of yours for years. Although I’ve never seen any of your TV shows (I know, can you believe it?! but we don’t have TV!), I have ALL of your fabulous books! And I’m thrilled to find your blog! Congratulations on your sweet baby girl Meredith, both of your girls are such beautiful bundles of sunshine. xoTrina

    Hi! I just discovered you when I checked out “Weekends” at the library. I modified your post-it memo board idea and blogged about it. I’d love your opinion!

    One of my readers just told me about your blog, and I am so excited to find it! We live on the island in the summers, and have ridden your daddy’s ferry line for 10 years. Hope you check out the blog I write every day on the island, although we are leaving Sunday for our home in Georgia.
