Fennville and Saugatuck Michigan similar to childhood

When folks hear that I spent nearly twenty years living the city life of Chicago and Dallas, they often ask “Isn’t this extremely different than city life?”  Actually, Saugatuck area, Fennville and West Michigan farm country are not all that much of a stretch for me as I grew up in the Midwest farm country of Northeast Iowa.  I grew up on a farm just outside of a small town in Iowa, so West Michigan and specifically the farm country that surrounds us here in the Saugatuck area, is not at all that different than what I was use to when growing up.  So in a way, living in West Michigan today is not all that different than what I experienced growing up in my childhood.
