I'd like to welcome everyone who is stopping by from Blogtrotting today! I live in the city of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. (pronounced oh-CON-oh-moe-wok)
Originally settled by the Potawatomi Indians who called it Coo-No-Mo-Wauk which means where the waters meet.
We've lived here for 10 years now. We built a house and moved in in March of 2000 and we love it here.
It's got that small town feel.
But since it's half way between Milwaukee and the capital city of Madison it's close enough to city living and all types of concerts, festivals, shows, museums and one of our favorite places the Milwaukee County Zoo.
Travel in any direction and you're sure to run into either one of the many surrounding lakes
Or some type of farm!
In fact our neighborhood is almost surrounded by corn throughout the summer months!
