Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a safe and healthy holiday season full of time with those you love and making many new memories. It’s always hard to believe when a near year rolls around but 2019 has arrived and we are ready to get back in the swing of things!
 
Our monthly 3x3 videos are staying around in 2019 and we’re here with some great events happening in January! To kick things off in the new year, we made our way to Happy Cat Cafe, a registered animal shelter that works with...

Slip-up #1: Stowing away your shovels

Even though we still have a few weeks until it’s “officially” winter, there’s no denying that the winter time has made its way to West Michigan. We’re busy shoveling our driveways, getting the kids bundled up before making snowmen, and curling up by the fire with a big mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows! When you put it that way, winter doesn’t sound too bad!
 
To make the winter time even better, we made our way to Cannonsburg to check out West Michigan’s premier ski and snowboard...

This month’s 3x3 is a special, limited edition - we’re calling it a 2x2. Josh was in Africa with his family adopting 2 new kids and trying to get everyone back home safe and healthy, so Ross and Scott took on the challenge of this month’s video on their own!
We made our way to a local candle bar in Eastown called Wax Poetic. It’s the perfect place to gather with a group of friends, head out for a date night, host an event, or to pick up a gift, especially with the holidays right around...

While fall may be the perfect time for trips to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch, it’s also the time to start getting our homes ready for winter. Before we know it, our lawns will be snow covered and we’ll all be bundling up in our warmest coats as we head out into the winter wonderland that awaits. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We still have plenty of fall to enjoy and a few tasks to take care of first. Here are seven things to get done outside before winter hits…

Fall has arrived! The trees are starting to change color, there are crispy leaves to crunch on cool afternoon walks, and it’s the perfect time for apple cider during your trip to the orchard! And as you all know, it’s also the perfect time for Art Prize in downtown Grand Rapids!
 
For this month’s 3x3 video we made our way downtown to check out all that’s happening during Art Prize and get ourselves right in the middle of the action! There’s still a few days left to enjoy this year’s...

It’s hard to believe that it’s already September, the kids are back in school, and before we know it, fall weather will be in full swing! For this month’s 3x3 video we hit a local park to celebrate the start of the back to school season.
 
We want to start by highlighting a local charity, the Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation which provides resources needed for the students of the Grand Rapids Public Schools to learn, develop and thrive and for the schools to achieve education...

As if moving and getting everything set up and organized isn’t stressful enough, it’s hard to know what your new neighbors are going to be like. Obviously, even if you’ve been in your home for awhile, you don’t know what to expect of the new people moving in.
 
I think the solution is pretty easy though, take the opportunity to introduce yourself to the new crew and welcome them to the neighborhood. You never know, they could end up becoming your new best friends, being a good go-to to grab...

We are deep in the dog days of summer and while it is hot, hot, HOT out, we aren’t letting that stop us from getting outside and enjoying the summer sun while we still can!
 
For this month’s 3x3 video we are doing what so many Michiganders love doing in the summer months - CAMPING! We got our fire set up and with the marshmallows roasting away, we are ready to share a few fun events you don’t want to miss this month. We hope you enjoy these events and then check back next month to see...
