Carolyn and her husband first visited Montana in 1987 and fell in love with the state. They vowed, at that time, to live here one day. Life intervened, children came, and it wasn’t until 2007, 20 years later, Carolyn and her family returned for a visit. With that visit, they couldn’t stay away. Montana was calling. A family vote was taken to move from their home in Maryland, 2,600 miles away, to begin a new life in Montana. Family and friends thought they were crazy. Some called it a midlife crisis, but Carolyn and her family knew they were making a dream come true. Fast forward 10+ years, and they still love Montana. Living in the West Kootenai, every day they stop, look, and gaze at the beauty surrounding them. In the words of John Steinbeck: “I’m in love with Montana. For other states, I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana, it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.” Read more
