 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…

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!

Ahnapee Brewery in Algoma Wisconsin-The Coolest 2 Car Garage In Town!

Love craft beer? I must admit that while I LOVE wine, I do enjoy dabbling in trying different craft beers from time to time. We’ve come a long way from the days where you basically had a handful of choices when it comes to beer.  Most of it tasted the same (okay, kind of), but as far as originality, there was little. Beer brewing is actually becoming an art form and the brew…

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…

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…

Why I May Be Moving To A Retirement Home Before I Retire

To move or not to move, that is the question. Moving to our retirement home before we actually retire has become a real possibility.  Things have certainly changed in the last year. We went from 2 stable incomes to one of us retiring from a long utility construction career and one of us  loosing a 32 year job with no warning. All this brought us scrambling as to what to do next.  Luckily we have…

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…

Enjoying The First Snowfall Of Winter

We had our first measurable snowfall of the season yesterday.  I must confess, I’m not a big fan of our Wisconsin winters, but I do enjoy the beauty of fresh snowfall.  Waking up this morning to the sight of snow turning  the dull brown landscape into a sea of white made me smile full of gratitude at how lucky we are to experience all four seasons here. I was scheduled…
