Happy Birthday Michigan!!!

Happy 175th birthday to the great state of Michigan, the place we call home! Our home is also known as The Wolverine State, The Mitten State, and The Water Winter Wonderland. Did you know, Michigan is the only state to consist entirely on 2 peninsulas and a person in Michigan is never farther than 6 miles from a water source and 85 miles from a coastline? We have a total of 64,980 lakes and ponds to swim, skate, tube and canoe on. In fact, we have the longest freshwater coastline in the world!!!

Here's a few other fun facts you may not know :

State Bird - Robin
Flower - Apple Blossom
Reptile - Painted Turtle
Fish - Brook Trout
Fossil - Mastodon
Rock - Petoskey Stone

So, Happy Birthday, Michigan! I'm sporting my Michigan pride today with this sweet necklace made by GlassAction! If you want one too, visit
