We recently relocated back to the Fox Valley after 23 years. Oh my, how it has changed. When we first moved to Appleton in 1982 as young parents of a three month old baby girl, we made our home on the south side of Appleton near East High School. Our family grew with the birth of our second daughter and we very firmly established ourselves as residents of the Fox Valley. Now we are returning as empty nesters and our interests are somewhat different.
When we originally moved to Appleton there were only a few grocery stores, the mall hadn’t been built, and 441 was just in the plans. All of that has changed. Appleton definitely rivals the larger cities such as Madison. Today the opportunities for shopping, entertainment, and outdoor activities are vast. As new returning residents of Appleton, we are excited to discover and explore all the area has to offer. We are veterans of moving and discovering new cities as this will be our seventh city and it is always fun to see what each area has to offer and why it is a good place to live.
This blog will not only be about living in the Fox Valley and the entertainment opportunities but also about all things related to homes, new construction, real estate, and design. There will be a plethora of information and stories for all to read. As a Designer/ New Homes Specialist with Midwest Design Homes and Jon Huss Homes, I am excited to share my passion with you.
My next post will be about going down memory lane in Appleton and what we have discovered and enjoyed thus far. Stay tuned and thank you for reading.
