 Taking On Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail and What Inspired Me To Do It

Did you know that Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail is one of 11 National Scenic Trails in the US? I bet not.  Most people, even if you are from Wisconsin really do not know much about the Ice Age Trail segments that they pass along the highway when you are traveling this beautiful state.  If fact, I cannot count how many times I have passed the trail-head on highway A just east of Elkhart Lake without really knowing much about it. Or that I passed another segment on my way to Whitewater to drop Megan off…

Best French Macarons In Wisconsin- Almond And Ivy Bakery In De Pere

Does Almond And Ivy Take The Prize? I could probably stop my search for the best French macarons in Wisconsin right here and now, I won’t of course, but seriously I found a winner! Almond And Ivy, a tiny bakery, located right in downtown De Pere, just south of Green Bay, has some of the best macarons I have had so far! Maybe it’s the fact that Karli Franzke, owner and master macaron baker, focuses only on these tasty French treats and cookies in her bakery. Maybe it’s because you can just taste the…

Is It Me Or Did Summer Just Fly By? Summer Recap

It’s Labor Day weekend. The last hurrah of summer. I know it sounds cliche, but did summer fly by in the blink of an eye? It sure seems that way. Is it true that the older you get the faster time passes? It feels that way! Now that Summer is on its last leg and dreams of everything pumpkin flavored is right around the corner, it’s time to take a look back at the last 3 months. Every year I ask myself if I accomplished all I wanted to during the summer months. If not, can…

Why You Must Shop Corner Closet In Cedarburg, Wisconsin

Travel and shopping are like peanut butter and jelly to me…they just go together. There is a reason why I love Cedarburg so much-shopping! I make several trips to this cute town north of Milwaukee several times a year. My good friend Beverly lives in Cedarburg and since her and I both love to shop, many of those visits include a trip downtown to check out the many shops that line Cedarburg’s main street. Being a travel and midlife lifestyle blogger, I love to pass along fabulous little finds. Cedarburg offers a variety of specialty…

Finding French Macarons In Wisconsin- Rocket Baby Bakery Wauwatosa

The search for French Macarons in Wisconsin continues… As you know I have been in search of the best French macarons in Wisconsin.

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…

Foodie Friday- Elsie Mae’s Bakery and Cannery In Kenosha Wisconsin

What’s a world without pie? Where can you go in Wisconsin to get the best pie? I found the answer. (at least in my opinion)  Elsie Mae’s Bakery and Cannery in Kenosha. I was recently lucky enough to get to visit this place and meet the owner Kelly, when I was in Kenosha, Wisconsin on my 7 Wisconsin road trips in 7 days tour. I found out about Elsie Mae’s pies when one of her cookie dough pies was included in a goodie bag when I took the Kenosha tour during the Women In…
