Dreaming out of the Mitten

I love the Mitten, but often I dream of living somewhere else. We are incredibly blessed with four different seasons in the year. My two favorites are winter and summer, for complete opposite reasons. I don't know think I could spend Christmas without snow or at least leading into the Holiday season, I don't know that I could do it without snow. On the other hand, I hate how out of control the snow can become! 

Summer is the other season in Michigan that is truly wonderful! I love the beautiful sunsets and the lakes we have. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by beautiful bodies of water and I can drive 2o minutes to a lake. That is something very special about Michigan. 

I also love going up to Traverse City and spending time at Great Wolf lodge, Sleeping Bear Dunes or visiting the place that has the best fudge in the world, Mackinaw Island! All of these places make the mitten truly a wonderful place to live...

Yet, I wonder if I could move somewhere else. I must say, the people in the south are so much sweeter! They are truly so nice! Everyone says "hello" and asks " how are you?" I find this all the time whether I am running outside or at church with a bunch of strangers. I even got kissed the other day by a woman at church, on the cheek of course. It is such a different world here in Georgia, I don't know if the rest of the South is like this, but I have had a wonderful experience here

I love Florida for the obvious reason, Disney World!! I mean, honestly who wouldn't want to live there?? Aside from hurricanes, crocidiles and humidity, I wouldn't mind living near the Happiest Place on Earth.. 

Spending time in Georgia, has made me think about the idea of living somewhere else. I am not sure yet, we will see what God has in store over the next couple of years. For now, I am focused on getting my School Social Work license in Michigan and then we will see what happens!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live???

I would love to live in Europe, probably Germany or the UK but I'd be open to pretty much any country there. I'd also love to live in NYC!

Colorado is pretty nice! Great weather!! You just have to get passed the forest fires.
