Grand Hotel – Photos

Grand Hotel is situated on the southwestern bluff of Mackinac Island overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and – in the distance – the Mackinac Bridge. From the front porch – the world’s largest at 660 feet – guests can look down at the well-kept gardens and relax and enjoy the ambiance of “somewhere in time”. It is no wonder that hollywood has chosen to come here more than once. Indeed, like a classic movie, Grand Hotel is larger that life.

Instagram post 17854852960837185 So happy with how this turned out! 🎨 One of my dearest friends and women I aspire to, Elizabeth Schweitzer. A slightly eccentric, charming and beautiful spirit, Elizabeth if you know her is such a bright light. She was the eighth woman in the world to attain the prestigious title of Master Sommelier, and is a force to be reckoned with. One of the many special characters I’ve grown to love as family on Mackinac Island. ❤️🥂❤️ Oil on Canvas 18x24

Instagram post 17845244558451056 Well, I am officially back to work and looking back 6 weeks ago, the thought of going back to work made me nauseous.  How could I step back into a role that made me face my husbands death over and over again?  Thats what I do for a living. I am a critical care nurse practitioner. Death and dying are unfortunately a huge part of my job. I take care of the sickest of the sick. I have end of life conversations with families. I run codes on patients. And just 6 weeks ago, I was on the other side as the family who had to see her husband being resuscitated by my co-workers after he unexpectedly and suddenly through a lethal arrhythmia while driving home from work. I had to watch my best friend, soul mate, and the love of my life get coded. And after over 45 minutes without regaining a pulse after immediate CPR and being defibrillated over 10 times, I had to make the call to stop resuscitative efforts.

But walking back into work and into my role, I have this new found strength. I picked up were I left off 6 weeks ago and I went back to the job I love with a little more grit, perspective, and understanding from the other side of the table. My work family has surrounded me with so much love and support and I am truly grateful to be back at work and trying to muddle through finding my new normal.

The first night I came home from work was really hard. I didn’t anticipate the feelings I would have coming home from a “normal day at work” to not having Scott at home waiting for me. Usually he would just be getting off work when I got home and those are the moments we would look forward to after a long work day.  We just looked forward to spending the night together. And I don’t have that anymore. So now I come home, to a quiet house and it really hit me hard. I still don’t get it. I don’t think I ever will. But for now, I just have to fight through each day and reward myself for the little accomplishments + victories. I made it back to work. I can function at work and be a competent provider with a lot to offer my patients, their families, and my co-workers. And for that, I will give myself some grace for the sad moments post work because it WILL get better. ❤️
