Rural LCK Sign

A coffee with the horsesThis story is about my best friend. My husband. A dreamer and a doer.

Rustic Russ and I were married six years ago, New Year’s Day, by this sign on our property.

We had met three years prior – our first date was sitting at the Big Boy restaurant in Petoskey, Michigan, looking over maps and planning our dog sled outing for the next day in the beautiful, pristine Jordan Valley.

Rustic Russ provided the dogs, sled, and enthusiasm.



I provided awe, wonder, and amazement of this incredible way of life.

Wonderful, Sherry. I had a bit of time this weekend to catch your blog; I saved it to my favorites and will be checking it out often. Great photos too. One of the things I enjoy about living in Michigan so much, is the diversity of landscape we have here. I grew up on the east side of the state, which is completely different than here on the west side where we live now. "Up North", which is what we down here call your region, is totally different than either.

Sherry, I just love your writings. They follow Rustic Russ's mantra - less is more. Simply unfettered without a bunch of unnecessary words, they are as rich and full as the life you two have together. Reading them is like enoying a good, strong black cup of coffee. Enjoy your day. ~ Cindy
