I Heart Michigan
One thing that I have realized during the time I spent in South America and also during the time I am currently spending in Europe is how much I love my wonderful home state of Michigan. There is something about those beautiful small towns in the south-west of the state scattered along the magnificent lake shore that will never let go of my heart.
I love the peaceful nothing-happens atmosphere of Berrien Springs. I love the quaint downtown section of Saint Joseph. I love the tall sandy dunes and the lake shore beaches. And I love that in two hours I can be in Chicago.
Don’t misunderstand me, Europe and South America are wonderful. Argentina especially will always hold a special place in my heart. But there is this thing about South-West Michigan that will always hold onto me like an obsessed lover.
Michigan is home.
