When I get to know people, I am always curious about where they live and what their houses look like. So when I saw this theme, I thought "Bravo!" Well, done, Heidi.
Ten months of the year, I live in Michigan, which is in the upper part of the US. We live in a semi-rural area and our house is on land that once was a pig farm. We get snow, many years, from November to March.
We were lucky to find this house, which was built in 1938.
February and March we live in Florida, 1350 miles or 2,200 km south. We rent a house on this man-made lagoon, which has many birds and fish. There are supposedly alligators here too. I have never seen anyone swimming in here, so that is possibly true. This is taken from our tiny dock. No one has boats either, which lends credence to the alligator story.
