My lifetime search for this ideal locale began in medieval Leicester, England. Next came Cleveland, Ohio. After many years on the shores of Lake Erie, the desire for a warmer climate led me to San Diego. Eventually, the high cost of West Coast living took its toll, prompting another move. Looking back, as a mother of 3 who enjoys a quiet life among hospitable neighbors in the ideal climate, l really believe Indian Land is my Shangri-la. That's why, with the encouragement of family and friends, l launched DIL in 2016.
