I grew up in idealistic small town America, aka Elk Rapids, Michigan. This place is known for its beautiful Caribbean blue water lakes, friendly neighborhoods, and educational excellence (maybe I’m just a little biased on those opinions… ). My best friends still live there, just as I live close to the area. The cold gloomy winters drive me crazy, but the rest of the seasons are simply amazing! The friends from here who have moved away, all come back in the best of seasons for visits. We all gather in town for fun and laughter… these are the kind of friendships that last a lifetime.
Of course, there are other parts of my life that are great too… and I assure you throughout this blog process, I will definitely write about them… and post pictures! I love taking pictures, so be on the lookout for some fun photo’s! I’ve become addicted to travel and learning as much about the places I go as I can. This years adventures include Chicago, IL, Nashville, TN, Greenville, NC, and of course, the Southern Tier of New York, where my family business has a remote office. Of course, in the winter season, I may have to slip in a week or two of the glorious sunshine in the Southwest Florida region as well!
Is my life perfect? Absolutely not… and on occasion, I may be inclined to write about those imperfections. Just a heads up… I occasionally suffer from situational depression and general anxiety. I have my coping mechanisms, which usually consist of the “grab life head on and shake it as hard as you can” method. Sometimes I piss people off… sometimes people piss me off… It’s life! All you can do is be the best person you can be the next day when you wake up.
