You may or may not already know me from my original blog, MomOnTheEdge.  If so, welcome back and thanks so much for following me here.  If not, it is nice to meet you.   To learn a little more about me and my family, please check out my About Us page.  While I loved MomOnTheEdge (and will still be posting there as well), I decided that I wanted to focus my blog a bit more.   I needed a new direction.   For the longest time I thought I didn't have a niche.  I thought I was just average.  I recently had an epiphany.  I might be pretty average in most respects, but where I live makes me pretty unique as well.   I live on the lake . . . but not just any lake . . . I live on the shores of one of the Great Lakes.  

If you've never seen the Great Lakes, then you really should.  They are immense.  At times it is like living on the ocean.  When you're in the middle of the lake and you look around, you may not be able see the shore.  We have days where our lake is as smooth as glass.  It looks almost like a swimming pool.  We have other days where the waves look like they might take your boat completely off its lift.  In fact, just this spring we had a storm that completely destroyed several of the neighbors' docks. 

From local factory workers, to small business owners doing what they love, to multi-million dollar company owners, we have a little of everything in our small town.   No matter what your income, people in our town love the lake and all it has to offer.   I'm hoping to use this blog to highlight what I've learned in my time here on lake.  Whether a product or place is the latest and greatest or an old standby, I'll share what we love best (and worst) about life on the lake.


  1. We love going to Erie, hubby's parents moved into their new lake digs this summer. It's not on the water like the previous one but it's much nicer. Cant wait to hear more!

  2. Thanks for stopping by! If you ever want to guest post or share some of your faves on the lake I'd love to hear them. Have a great weekend.
