"As a small child my fondest memories were the summers spent at my Aunt Bev's cottage on Lake Michigan. Her eclectic style and welcoming personality always made visiting feel like home. My favorite pastime was drawing at her writing desk in the sun-room overlooking the lake. The desk's warm edges, smooth- dried paint drips, and cracks felt comforting to my hands as I carefully placed my crayons in a row. These memories are the inspiration behind Barton Park."
