TRAVEL DIARY: PRE-MOTHERS DAY RETREAT AT GRAND TRAVERSE RESORT
PRE-MOTHERS DAY RETREAT
AT GRAND TRAVERSE RESORT
Every mom needs a getaway every once and again, and with it being the month for Mothers why not take a getaway trip to a 4 star resort. I had never been to Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, but the stories I heard of the immaculate service and scenery was let's say just a portion of what all they truly offer to their guest.
On this trip, I was accompanied by a group of mothers wanting to relax and enjoy a getaway trip just as much as I did. The trip was organized by event planner, LaTonya Spearmen of Eloquets Enterprise. Of course my mother, Peyton and I only saw fitting we celebrate Mother's day with these amazing ladies.
I know what you're thinking, why take your baby on a spa getaway? Well, being a mother to me means creating memories with my children, because they grow up so fast and before you know it they're off doing their own thing. Also, I was raised this way, my mother took me everywhere. I was always traveling with her and those moments are my greatest memories spent with her. I only saw fitting I celebrate Mother's Day with the ladies who matter most to me, my mom and PeyPey!
Day one of our trip began with a photo shoot of course. I used this time to show off Peyton's T-shirts from her first clothing collection, Little Miss by Peyton Marie. Launching next month btw!! For updates check out She Inspired Clothing. I also used these photos to announce my pregnancy!! Yes, baby number 2 is on the way!!! Another reason why this Mother's Day means so much to me! I love being a mom and although this pregnancy wasn't planned, my family is overjoyed to be gaining a new addition.

Road trips with the McNeal clan always include a stop at the nearest outlet or super mall. On this trip we stopped at Birch Run Premium Outlets for some pre-retail therapy, knowing we were in for more once we arrived at our destination. The one thing I wasn't expecting was to spend over 300$ before reaching the resort, but as you can see Peyton Marie had no problem spending mommy's money.
Once we arrived at the beautiful Grand Traverse Resort, I was blown away at how large the resort was. I was welcomed by cute shops and restaurants, tennis courts, large pools and an amzing spa. I was very pleased with the cleanness and professional service.
We enjoyed the pool, candy shop, toy store, spa, fitness classes, and delicious foods, only a portion of what all the resort offers.
