Month in Review: March 2019

We all have fears, many of which we chose not to face. One of my deepest ingrained fears is networking. Specifically, solo networking. The idea of entering a room of strangers and trying to strike up a conversation terrified me. In the past, I have avoided these situations at all costs. I’ve missed out on conferences, lectures, and meet-ups that have piqued my interest. I decided this is an aspect of myself that I’m no longer going to accept. Yes, it’s uncomfortable to challenge yourself, but change is possible.

Therefore, I kicked off March by signing up for not one, but six local events. Yes, you read that right. SIX events! Milwaukee hosted a week long event for female entrepreneurs filled with wonderful speakers and educational workshops. Not only did I survive a week of networking, I left feeling inspired. I’m going to keep my eye out for more events like these that I can attend in the future.

After a wonderful week attending events downtown, Ian and I drove to Racine for their orchid festival. I was sold simply on the idea of spending the afternoon in a greenhouse, but having an opportunity to explore downtown Racine was an additional bonus. Neither Ian nor I have spent much time in Racine, so stopping by O&H Bakery for a danish and taking a walk along the lakefront path were a must.

March ended with an early birthday visit from my family. I set my out-of-office email message and played hooky for the day. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch downtown and spent the afternoon visiting some of my favorite local spots.

Month in Review: January 2019

January was a month of extremes. We rang in the new year in 80˙ heat before returning home to endure -50˙ wind chills during the polar vortex. Despite these changes in weather, Ian and I filled the month with a balance of fun-filled family outings and cozy days at home.

The month began listening to the waves crash upon the Vero Beach shoreline. Ian’s family planed this staycation while we were visiting Florida over the holidays and we couldn’t have been more grateful. We enjoyed watching the sunrise on the beach, splashing in the waves, and playing board games with the family at night.

While we were in Florida, Ian and I managed to sneak in a day trip to Miami. We wandered around the Wynwood neighborhood to take in all of the murals, eat Taiyaki ice cream, and meet up with one of my good friends for dinner. Sadly, this was our last day in Florida. I couldn’t believe our trip flew by so fast!

Luckily, when we returned home, we had a few weeks before we were greeted with the polar vortex. The -50˙ wind chill closed down the town and everyone hunkered down at home. We filled our nights baking bread, playing card games, and reliving the magic of the Harry Potter film series.

Once the weather warmed up Ian and I celebrated with a visit to Milwaukee’s downtown ice bars. When my toes started to lose feeling we decided it was time to go home and warm up! It was a nice outing, regardless of the cold, and helped ward off cabin fever.

Month in Review: December, 2018

I never intended on stepping away and taking a digital detox. It all began with tucking my phone away to soak in quality family time over the holidays and catching a cold on the flight home from Florida. A weekend offline suddenly turned into three weeks and I was in disbelief. The holidays really took a toll of me this year! Thankfully, the cold has passed, our Christmas decorations are back in storage, and I’m ready to take on my 2019 goals. One of which, is to rejuvenate this space. To start, let’s rewind a bit and dive into December’s month in review!

Month in Review: December, 2018

December was a magical month full of light displays, sugar cookies, and holiday parties. Ian and I fully immersed ourselves in the season and filled our calendar with outings to drive down candy cane lane, bake our favorite holiday treats, and attend our first play in Milwaukee – Christmas at Pemberly. We ended the month celebrating Christmas with my family, then flying to Florida to ring in the New Year.

It was a month filled with tradition – some old and some new. That’s one thing I love most about the holidays. It’s a time to create your own magic and be filled with the wonder of the season. Watch the video below to see one second of every day in December. Enjoy!
