So the whole Bill Ray clan owns this lovely home in Charlevoix, MI (but don't let the secret out to too many people!), and Bill and Kari and our friend Kurt just brought the house next door. It's walking distance to the beach, it's a short ride to any number of small towns and attractions, and it's just plain beautiful on its own. Northern Michigan is so beautiful. Thanks for letting me crash your 4th of July party. #sograteful!
