There is no doubt about it; people have immense pride for our “Mitten State.” Growing up and living in Michigan is an unforgettable experience whether it’s for a short time or a lifetime. From the beauty of the Great Lakes to generations of sports rivalries, the state of Michigan is unforgettable. There truly is no place like home, and unlike Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, we do not need flying monkeys to convince us.
Another wise phrase comes from one of Ancient Rome’s most famous scholars, Pliny the Elder (A.D. 23-79). He is attributed to the origin of the saying, “Home is where the heart is.” These simple words ring true. There will always be special memories, places, and even foods that can transport us back to West Michigan. What do you picture when you close your eyes and think of home? Perhaps it is eating hotdogs at a Whitecaps game or feeling sand between your toes and hearing the sound of waves at Lake Michigan. Wearing a small memento of Michigan is a great way to remember where your heart is.
