I didn't know where Stewart was located until I applied for this position. I knew where Hollywood was located, because my dad loves to try around the countryside aimlessly during the summer. He gathers fruit and vegetables from every stand he passes, I think. I knew Roosevelt was by the High School. As for Stewart? I had no idea. I had to Google it. :) When I pulled it up on the map, my mouth fell open. You all are beginning to learn of my love for the lake. I could not believe just how close Stewart was to Lake Michigan.
I had never actually been to Stewart until I came for my second interview. As I turned on to Maple Lane, I spotted the "Stewart Sign". I can't explain the feeling I got, but I immediately felt at home. That little sign is one of my absolute favorite parts of Stewart. I love that it looks a little worn, but it is apparent it is cared for. It is nautical and unique. It embodies our lake life.
