Location: Eureka Springs, Arkansas / Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Since: 2006 — Eureka Springs, AR — What brought me here? After a 2 1/2 year search, I found a Bed and Breakfast to purchase,the Angel at Rose Hall located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. As to what brought me to Fort Lauderdale …. after College graduating, Fort Lauderdale was the perfect escape from cold, and gray Pittsburgh. I have the best of both worlds of living in both Eureka Springs and Fort Lauderdale. Eureka Springs, AR. is a charming and romantic Victorian Village nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountain. The town has the amenities of a big city with the charm of a small town. A place where you can safely walk, jog or ride your bike, even at night. A place where every one says “hello, ” and actually is happy to see you. Neighborhoods that burst with home town pride, flowers gardens, American flags flying, and streets filled with neighbors walking their dogs or walking themselves to town.
1979 — Fort Lauderdale, FL. the Venice of the America, home to my favorite beautiful beaches, culture, art and the best place I have ever found to shop. I love the smell of the salt air, bright sunshine, endless wind and the ageless feeling I get when walking along the waters edge of the beach. Fort Lauderdale might be home to the rich and famous, but I love its historic neighbors, filled with turn of the century buildings and the city’s downtown shops, restaurants, Art Galleries and the “breezy vacation vibe” that is uniquely South Florida.
