You’ve probably noticed I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus lately. Usually around this time of year when the weather refuses to break I find myself in desperate need of a getaway. Time to clear my head, reset and renew. Unfortunately working a 9-5, going to grad school and running a side hustle at the same time leaves barely even minutes to spare. But only 5 more weeks until I’m FINALLY done with grad school! So I did the next best thing you can do in Detroit and spent a day at the Belle Isle Conservatory. Surrounded by the oranges trees and banana leaves I felt like I was on a tropical getaway. The warmth inside the conservatory didn’t hurt either. Belle Isle is one of those places that reminds you a vacation doesn’t mean you have to leave your zip code. Sometimes it’s as simple as coffee at your favorite shop, the smell of fresh cut flowers while you read a book, or a visit to a conservatory.
