Foodie Friday- Purple Door Ice Cream Milwaukee, Wisconsin

In case you can’t tell by now, I have a real sweet tooth!  I love sweet treats and one of them…ice cream! So when I recently spent a day in Milwaukee for my 7 Wisconsin road trips in 7 days, Purple Door Ice Cream was on my list of places I HAD to visit. It was a good thing I parked in a lot near the Hilton on Wisconsin Avenue and spent the day walking, cause after my Purple Door indulgence, I definitely needed to reverse the effects of the ice cream deliciousness I sampled. Beer…

Explore Wisconsin-North Point Lighthouse Milwaukee

Discover Wisconsin! With the arrival of Spring comes a yearning to get out and explore.  So last weekend was the perfect time to begin my Wisconsin adventure.  I have made it my mission to travel around Wisconsin and discover places and things to do that are right in my backyard and write about them to promote Wisconsin travel.  There are so many places, natural, cultural, historical, and downright plain interesting to see and do in my home state.  I want to share my discoveries, some lessor known, and some well known, to those of you who may not be familiar…

Book Recommendation-Big Magic From Elizabeth Gilbert

I am revisiting this book recommendation I wrote from January 2016 when I about my favorite book from 2015.  It is timely since we are reading it this month in an online book club I am a member of.

This book was the prime motivator behind making my writing and my blog a top priority in my life last year (plus losing my job…

Why My Book Addiction Will Cause My Sudden Death

I love books I love new books, used books, book recommendations, book clubs, and mostly owning books!  This last fact is the main reason that books could be the death of me. Books stores are an instant magnet to me.  If I walk past one, I HAVE to enter.  Before I know it I have spent hours combing the shelves only to walk out with 5 new books in my bag. Sometimes I think I am the only person with this book addiction, but from what I hear, I am in good company.  Actually I can vouch for this special…

Book Recommendation: Pancakes In Paris by Craig Carlson

  My book recommendation for this month is Breakfast In America by Craig Carlson Not only did this fun read make me incredibly hungry for all breakfast food, it  was a great glimpse into the crazy bureaucracy of starting and running a restaurant in Paris. This is the true story of Craig Carlson and his very famous diner style Breakfast In America restaurants in Paris. Armed with an idea and a dream, his journey is not an easy one by far. Struggling with setback after setback, Craig never gives up on his dream. It sure takes a tough skin to…

A Parents Guide To Yallfest 2016

I originally wrote this piece in 2015 after attending Yallfest the year before for the first time with my then 16 year old daughter.  I wanted to resurrect it and post it again since it is time for Yallfest for another year. My daughter is now in her first year of college and I have to say this is one of my favorite things we did together in her High School years. If you are not familiar with YALLfest you are probably asking yourself What is YALLfest 2016? YALLfest is one of-if not the largest young adult book events…
