In “5 Things,” I ask some of my favorite bloggers in cities all over the country to share insider travel tips on where to eat, shop, stay, and play in their neighborhoods (plus, what to pack to make the adventure complete). This week, Nicole Dula of Dula Notes shares insider tips on Detroit, Michigan.

5 Things: Detroit

It’s hard to put into words what exactly makes Detroit so special, but when you’re there, you just feel it. The sense of community, entrepreneurship, grittiness, hard work, and overall positivity has me visiting as often as I can. Its checkered past has inspired its citizens to take action and start to develop a different story for the city—urban farms, great restaurants, charming shops and creative businesses are popping up seemingly everywhere these days. If you’ve never been or have been away longer than a year or two, it’s time for a visit!

Getting ahead of the holidays


family design  Getting ahead of the holidays

Ready or not, the holidays are just around the corner. This year—Skyler’s first—everything seems to be happening faster.

Every year I say I’m going to get ahead—on holiday wish lists, plans, cards, and the like. This year, it’s going to happen! I really want to savor this season with our two little ones.

First step: holiday cards. We went with Minted last year, and we loved how they turned out—so it was an easy choice to go with one of their designs again. (And they’re sharing a discount with readers. See below if you’d like to do so as well.)
