About Us:

Home is where the heart is...

Home is where the Air Force Sends Us– that’s the motto we used for over twenty years as our family traveled the world with the United States Air Force. And while we saw some great places and experienced some amazing things, our heart always yearned for our return to our roots in the Midwest. So, we returned to our true home, where everyone understands Garrison Keillor’s, “where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average.” So true, so true.

In the military, families often refer to their “forever home.” That’s the home you’ll have when your service is done and you can carve out a piece of property to live on forever. We are so happy we made our forever home in Eau Claire, home of clear water. We look forward to meeting all of you! Jim, Anna, Otto, and I hope you stop by, eat some apples, and stay for a chat!
