About 7 years ago, I moved to Lansing, Illinois because I wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city.
- However, I also wanted to be close enough, so that I could have access when I needed to.
And because the city is less than a 30 minute drive away, it makes Lansing the ideal place to live. The beauty about Lansing is that it is a small town, but we have a lot of festivals and events throughout the year. For instance, I love going to the Autumn Fest that we celebrate in October. They have hayrides, arts and craft, and lots of fun for the kids without the huge crowds. This is something that I have always imagined having as a child, but I missed out because I grew up in the city for all my life. Another thing I like about Lansing is the weather. In the Summer, the temperature fluctuates between 80 to 85 degrees. So, it’s always nice outside and some nights are so cool that we don’t need any air conditioning. And speaking of air conditioning, I am so glad that my house has a central air system. When we lived in the city, we used window A/C’s. While the window units worked well, it only cooled one section of the house. We had a second unit installed but it still wasn’t enough. Therefore, it is so much better having central air. Not only is my entire house kept comfortable, but the indoor air quality is also better than it was with our window A/Cs.
