I began this journey in the early fall. It started first on the phone, but quickly moved to a visit to tiny Kohler, Wisconsin. Wow - it's beautiful here.
After spending a day in Kohler, my next stop was Milwaukee where I realized there was a giant lake up here, doh!
And some really cool old houses...
Second leg of the journey, back to Kohler to explore the area. Hmmm... would I really want to work here? to live here?! Considering and thinking...
Everyone was so nice, and the weather was really cooperating! (Everyone kept telling me that it was unusually warm - let's just say we were all on our best behavior!)
LOVE these green slate roof shingles!
These were all taken at The American Club - where we stayed during this trip. It's a five diamond resort, with some pretty cool history behind it. It was awesome! During this second trip, we also went to a Green Bay Packers game - that was fun - but pretty darn cold!
The American Club has a lot of history - it was built in the early days of Kohler Company, as a sort of boarding house for Kohler employees (mostly immigrants). Our room was kind of small, but the bathroom was amazing (of course!).
The building twists and turns for days - I kept getting lost and ending up on the wrong floor (regardless of the one I was trying to find). I thought it was cool that one of the restaurants, the Horse & Plow Pub, used to be a bowling alley for the workers.
The day before Thanksgiving, I got the call. They made me an offer to move to Kohler, WI and work for Kohler Company.
Oh my goodness - this is exciting - but oh, so scary! I have to pick up my life and move to a completely 'foreign' part of the country? New job, new home, new life...the journey continues...
