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- 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…

Chasing Waterfalls In Marinette County, Wisconsin

Whoever said you can’t chase waterfalls has never been to Marinette County Wisconsin It has been my goal for quite some time to do the waterfalls tour in Marinette County.  When I got some time off work and decided to do 7 Wisconsin road trips in 7 days, the waterfalls tour was on my list. There are 14 waterfalls total on this self guided tour.  Maps are available at most gas stations in Marinette County,  I had been up at Pembine, Wisconsin the week before ATVing with my family, so I picked up the free map and Marinette…

7 Wisconsin Road Trips In 7 Days

Vacationing at the spur of the moment I found myself with an unplanned 7 days off of work last week.  Believe me, I was doing a happy dance since I have not had much time to check things off my summer Wisconsin bucket list!  As a travel blogger-I was itching to get on the road and discover places in Wisconsin to review and write about. Having a full 7 days off, I wanted to have some family time and do my travel blogging things.  So the question was should we find somewhere to stay as a family for a…

Finding French Macarons In Wisconsin At Le Reve Patisserie And Cafe

Looking to satisfy my appetite for all things French, I began my quest to find the best French macarons in Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago with a stop in Wauwatosa at a couple of places- Le Reve Patisserie and Cafe and Rocket Baby Bakery. These small, colorful, and fancy cookies made from almond flour, powdered sugar, and egg whites, with a host of fillings are a must have on any visit to Paris.  Famous shops such as Laduree and Pierre Herme make whole window displays out of these cookies that are so pretty, you cannot help but wander inside…

5 Ways To Conquer Post Vacation Blues

We’ve all been there.  You spend weeks planning a much needed vacation to your dream destination and in the blink of an eye, it’s over.  The post vacation blues set in.  Post travel depression is a very real thing compounded if you are returning to a mediocre job or any other less than perfect things going on in your life. While we travel, we are often our best versions of ourselves.  We are happy, relaxed, (this can be debated depending on what you are doing and where you are) and away from the mundane tasks of…

5 Reasons To Visit the Civil War Museum In Kenosha Wisconsin

Opening in 2008, the Civil War Museum in Kenosha tells the story of the Civil War from the perspective of the upper midwest.  This museum focuses on the stories not only of the soldiers who went to battle, but of all citizens and how the war effected their lives during and after the war. The museum is located down on the lakefront of Lake Michigan. One you have completed your tour of the Civil War Museum take a stroll along the lakefront for viewing the North Pier Lighthouse or take a ride on one of the streetcars that circle…

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…

Sault St. Marie Area and The Soo Locks

Exploring the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is one of the most picturesque things you can do.  With miles of Lake Superior coastline with sandy beaches, to waterfalls, the UP has it all. For many years every July Megan and I would pack our bags for the week and join my parents outside of Escanaba, Michigan.  From that home base, we discovered many places to see in the UP.  We frequently took side day trips to destinations all over the area for things to do. It’s no wonder that Michigan’s UP is listed as Lonely Planet&#8217…
