Just recently a friend of ours bought a lake house in the woods of Wisconsin. She kept her house in the Chicagoland area, but was excited to use this second property to relax, entertain, and make new memories on the weekends and throughout the summer.
As much as she wanted to move-in and start enjoying this space immediately, she had some work to do before it was “move-in ready”. To top it off, she works Monday through Friday near her primary residence in Chicago, which kept her from traveling up to Wisconsin and getting these jobs done immediately. She was limited to making this new property her “home away from home” on the weekends, when she would physically travel up to the new property and get to work. (more…)

I hate to break it to you, but being labeled the “new neighbors” comes with a little bit of pressure. I know you have 5 million other things to worry about in your new home, but if we don’t give you the head’s up & keep it real—you may never know the T-R-U-T-H.
Whether you like it or not, a lot is riding on whether you’re going to graduate into the “we love our new neighbors!” level or quickly detour down the unwanted path of…. “the super weird neighbors”.
Between us, no one wants to be labeled the weird neighbors- no one. We won’t get into the ugly truths of what those weird neighbors are all about (that’s a post for another day), let’s just keep it at this: you stick with us and you won’t have to worry about that daunting future, but more so, a future of welcoming waves and endless opportunity to borrow ingredients you forgot to pick up at the store. You are welcome!
