Allison grew up on the east side of Wauwatosa, and now is a musician and piano teacher who lives on the west side of Tosa with her husband Nick. She enjoys listening to live music, attending local arts events, baking and good wine.
When we moved over to the west side of Tosa earlier this year, from over yonder out east, we knew it would be a bit of a culture shock, per se. Many people have referred to our new neighborhood as "out in the country," "the boonies," etc. My response is usually "you call being in walking distance of Highway 100 being 'out in the country?'"
