Wisconsin Getaways- Chateau De Pere in De Pere, Wisconsin

Weekend getaways Chateau De Pere De Pere, Wisconsin My hubby is always full of surprises.  This past weekend to celebrate our 24th Anniversary he told me to pack a bag  after I came home from work Friday, we were heading to an undisclosed location for the night. After some questions about what to pack we headed off north. Now you all know my obsession for all things French right?   The only hint he would give me was that our getaway had a French theme.  So imagine my happiness when we arrived after a 45 minute drive to Chateau De Pere…

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…

Winter Bucket List Item-Ice Castles Wisconsin Dells

I had been waiting patiently for the chance to see the Ice Castles in Wisconsin Dells.  When I read in December that Ice Castles were coming to Wisconsin for the first time I was pretty excited.  Truthfully I had never heard of it before, but it looked like a cool thing to do. All we needed was the Wisconsin weather to cooperate. The construction of the castles began in Mid December. Due to the warm temps around Christmas the opening was delayed until mid January.  Within a few days of opening, Wisconsin was due for a January thaw that closed…

All Saints Church Of Elkhart Lake In The Snow

Winter Destination -The All Saints Chapel Of Elkhart Lake Wisconsin All Saints Chapel of Elkhart Lake was my first photo-op of the morning.  Wisconsin became covered in a blanket of white on Wednesday and I knew just where I was headed to take some pictures this morning.  Almost everyday the whole month of December as I delivered parcels for the USPS I drove past this cute little chapel.  Every time I did I vowed to come back when I had my camera and some time to take pictures. This morning was the perfect opportunity. Built in 1951, this chapel…

Bastille Days Festival In Milwaukee And A Suprise From A Friend

Sometimes the best weekends come on the spur of the moment. Having no concrete plans for the weekend I spent my Saturday morning doing a couple of my favorite summer things. Strolling around the farmers market in Sheboygan and hitting some consignment shops. First I made my rounds buying some veggies for the week. I don’t know what it is, but everything looks so yummy when you see it laid out on tables. Maybe it’s because someone else is doing all the hard work! The colors, smells, and the fact everything is locally grown is appealing…

Wisconsin Destinations-Meeme Poll House

Update April 2017-Sesslers Meeme House has finally been transported to it’s new home.   Sometimes the most interesting places are right around the corner.  We tend to overlook  places when we live right by them, but on a Thursday afternoon I was helping the hubby install an underground fence for a property next to this cute little building. Curiosity got the best of me and I asked the property owner about this place.  It turns out there is quite the history behind this little building which is on it’s way along with the former Sesslers…

Ice Sculptures Everywhere! Carvers Invade Kiel, Wisconsin

Yesterday the Main Street of our small town of Kiel, Wisconsin was hopping. Every year on a cold Saturday in February the locals try out their talents making blocks of ice into artful creations. It’s a big hit here in our small town. Late in the afternoon when all the carving is done you can find people bundled up walking up and down Main Street checking out the sculptures. Some you can easily see what they are meant to be-others, well let’s just say it’s fun to guess! The carvers vary in age…
