Michigan Moments

There’s a power to some places. They leave their mark in people’s hearts and minds. Northern Michigan is such a place. We are fortunate to live in Traverse City so that we can experience—from the outdoors, to the culture, to the people—the magic this region offers. It’s a place that empowers people to live purposeful, meaningful, and active lives, and we are proud to work with so many wonderful people and organizations to make special moments happen together. 



Upcoming Events

We host lots of Life and Whim community moments throughout the year, from small gatherings with coffee and crafts for the kids, to large scale events where the whole community is welcome. Life and Whim’s events have a few things in common—they’re fun, they’re family-friendly, and they take place in the great outdoors. Come see us and enjoy fun moments with your family!
