This past weekend I had an amazing, unexpected opportunity to accompany my favorite friend Stephanie to Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Before Sunday I had no idea that Whitefish Bay even existed, and if you asked me about Wisconsin I would have quoted a few lines from That 70's show and told you they ate a lot of cheese and beer there. Well the cheese and beer part is probably true, but nobody told me that they were eating cheese and drinking beer in the most beautiful place on earth. I loved Wisconsin.
It's amazing to me that I love where I grew up (Arizona), and would never change anything about it, but let's face it folks, I live in the desert. Yes if you look hard there is a certain beauty here, but I'm calling it the telestial kingdom for sure compared to the beauty and greenery of other places in the U.S., and I'd count Whitefish Bay among the prettiest I've ever been to. It's such a beautiful village (as they call it) with a small town feel, I kept on thinking I was in Pleasantville, and couldn't quite believe places like this even exist; but they do.
So to Stephanie, thank you, thank you, thank you for inviting me. I had so much fun. I really had my eyes and heart opened to the beauty of another place I might never have gone to. So pretty! Maybe my favorite thing about it though were the beautiful homes. You all know how much I appreciate a beautiful house, and I hope to own a home someday that speaks to my soul as much as these do. And to anyone out there reading this, if you're ever in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, stop in at Kopps and get some custard, and hands down the best cheeseburger you've ever had in your life. There really must be something to their cheese, as for the beer, I'll let someone else tell you about that! And if you want to see my little cheesehead, check her out here. I didn't bring any cheese home for you all to taste, but here's a taste of the homes of Whitefish Bay.
