Nine Things I'd Do On A Perfect Day

10 Day Blog Challenge - Day 2 - Nine Things I'd Do On A Perfect Day

Nine things I'd do on a perfect day. It would be so easy to say things like, have a late morning snuggle in the bed with the whole family, a big breakfast, spending time with my honey and kids, and so on, but those all sound so typical and a bit trite.

So after giving this a bit of thought, I decided to make a list of nine places I'd like to go on a perfect day, though I'm going to play around with it, and just for the sake of this exercise, pretend that geography is not a factor. I'm also going to pretend that even if they were all close together, there would be time enough in the day to do all of them.

Of course, that means I could choose any nine places in the world, but I limited it to places that are within a few hours of each other in neighboring states where I've lived, and doing things I've actually done before and enjoyed. Oh, and I also have to pretend that money is no object and I could afford it all.

We could really call this nine places I'd go on a perfect day. Any of these on their own would make a great "One Tank Trip."

1. Breakfast at Big Boppers in Marblehead, Ohio, on Lake Erie. I'd get some homemade cinnamon French Toast (made with fresh, round cinnamon bread from the bakery down the street) and two or three cups of Douwe Egberts coffee.

2. Take a ferry over to Put In Bay, South Bass Island in Lake Erie, then rent a golf cart and tool around the island for a while.
3. Go shopping at Planktown Country Store in Shiloh, Ohio. A bulk foods store that is actually run by Mennonites, but affectionately referred to as "The Amish Store." This is close to my hometown in North Central Ohio, where there is a large community of Amish and Mennonite.
4. Stop down the road at Country Fabrics in Shiloh. A huge fabric shop in a barn with a pole barn addition out in the middle of the country. Yet they have designer fabrics and carry Moda, including charm packs and jelly rolls.
5. Head down to Mohican State Forest in Loudonville, Ohio, and hike to the Big Lyon Falls.
6. Once back in Michigan, I'd head to the Pinckney State Recreation Area near Hell, and take a boat ride around the several lakes.

7. In Northville, Michigan I'd stroll around downtown and hit the upscale resale stores for kids, the baby boutique/educational toy store, the historic Mill Race Village, and stop for lunch at a sidewalk cafe.
8. Then I'd head west to Holland, Michigan to see the tulips. Preferably during the tulip festival.
9. Lastly, I'd head to downtown Chicago for a romantic dinner at the Signature Room at the 95th in the Hancock Building.
