Happy 313 Day!

3/13 has been adopted as 313 day, a day to celebrate detroit and what makes it great. My parent's home phone number and my cell number are actually both 313 numbers, so I feel like I can safely say I'm from the 313.

I actually really love going to downtown detroit. there are tons of restaurants, the greatest art museum, races, sporting events -- I've yet to have a bad experience in Detroit.

So I thought I'd join some bloggers today in posting some pics of my favorite things about/in detroit.

Basically there's a lot to love in Detroit, and I'm proud to say that I'm from the D.

  1. I wanted to run the Cocoa Classic so badly! That's awesome that you were able to! And I was at Comerica Park during the Winter Classic excitement, too. Detroit sports are the best! Thanks so much for linking up with us today! :)

    1. It was a little disorganized for being a first year race, and I don't think they're coming back? but I enjoyed it!

      The winter classic was great!

      Thanks for providing the link-up opportunity!
