My She Shed-Vintage Camper Redo

Last weekend my hubby surprised me by announcing that my she shed dreams are about to come true. He didn’t just blurt this out, he took me out to eat after a long day at work and said he had a surprise for me. Immediately my mind goes into overdrive.  What can this be?  Knowing my hubby, it can mean anything.  He has a knack for surprising me with things that I wish for and maybe had only mentioned once or twice.  I’m totally spoiled in that way.  What can I…

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…

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…

The Women In Travel Summit WITS Was A Game Changer

I am officially dealing with a WITS hangover! For the most part, us bloggers have kind of a lonely life.  What I mean by that is that you spend a huge chunk of your time sitting in front of your computer and stare at a screen. Sure, you engage on social media but there is little face to face contact with your tribe- those fellow bloggers that seem to be the only people who truly understand your work. We all have family members and friends who are clueless about what we are doing.  They ask “what is this blog…

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…

Traveling On The Path To Self-Discovery

Imagine you are thousands of miles from home in a place you have never been before and yet you feel oddly settled, like you have been there many times before.  It’s a feeling so strong that it knocks the wind out of you for a few moments. This is just what I experienced the first time I went to Paris. It may sound corny, but I always tell people that I had to go to Paris to find myself.  From the time I entered the city on that bus I felt at home.  Like I BELONGED there.  I…

Paris And The Seine River Video Snapshot

Paris offers so many picture opportunities, but it’s even better seen by video From time to time I look back at all my Paris photo’s from last year and remember all the things I saw.  If you are one of my Instagram followers (@lorilovesparis) you know that my feed is 90% Paris photo’s. What I was looking back at today was a few videos I took strolling around Paris. This one which I put on my YouTube channel was taken when we were walking around the Sixth Arrondissement. It features snippets of the colorful…

It’s Official! I’m A Blogger And I’m Going To WITS17!

I’m going to the Women In Travel Summit in Milwaukee!! Back in the beginning of the year I filled out my goal workbook.  One of the things I wanted to make happen was that I was able to attend a blogging conference so I could learn and connect with fellow bloggers.  It was a vision I had for myself in order to fulfill my goal of growing and making money off my blog. Fast forward to February when I won the ticket to the Women In Travel Summit in Milwaukee thanks to Midwest Travel Bloggers! The Women In…
