What do you want to do today? That was the question they'd ask each other, clutching mugs of coffee on the poolside porch as sunlight kissed the Indiana countryside. With over 16 acres of land and more than 6,500 square feet of home, their options seemed endless. Perhaps they'd take a dip in the below-ground pool, go fishing in the shared two-acre pond, walk the gardens, hike the groomed one-mile path through the woods, or light the fire pit and set up some lawn games. Or perhaps it was more of an "indoor" day. Shed get work done in the lower level office while he hit up the exercise room. Later they'd have guests over for wine and conversation, letting things flow from their open concept dining and entertaining area to their hearth room where a wood-burning Indiana limestone fireplace offered the perfect backdrop. Every day was different. Every day was an adventure. But they always ended things on the veranda overlooking the woods.
