When my husband and I decided to move from downtown Chicago and live that quieter and simpler country life, we chose Harbor Country which is only about 60 minutes away in Pure Michigan®. We loved the location as we are still close enough to a world class city, but far enough to really live that country life. Along with us, we brought our 2 perfect little Shiz Tzus Oliver and Carter. But now since living in the country, we added two fun loving Chesapeake Bay Retrievers– BLU and Gauge to the family. We figured what better retrievers than Chessies to swim and retrieve in that cold, pure Lake Michigan water and how they absolutely love it. It’s freedom–no leashes but just outdoor anytime fun.
My simple life now is rounded out with the fun of enjoying every day, waking up and deciding whether to take a walk at Spicer Lake, throw “bumpers” for my retrievers at Weko Beach, get a quick burger between showings at Redamak’s in New Buffalo, or stop in after work to Greenbush brewing co. in Sawyer for a craft beer… it’s all here and so close by.
If you’re reading this and longing for something different, you just have to get here… this “About Me” page isn’t about me at all… It’s about you… I challenge you to experience a different world and get here however you can. And btw, you can still be to work in Chicago in an hour, so tell your boss to give a little. This is your life and I hope you will be like me and wake up one day and say I’m going to live it!
