This summer I had the chance to interview a nearby neighbor that my kid absolutely loves. Bob and his wife Trish are yet another example of why I love living in Iron River. While Jake hasn’t decided to take up circus tricks, it was really cool to do this story. You can also see it…… Continue reading World Record Juggler Spends Summer Teaching Kids Circus Tricks

Lost Creek Falls Summer is coming to a close. Not sure how I feel about that. I decided to take the morning off to hit Lost Creek Falls (a must-see waterfall in Bayfield County) and do some book editing at one of my favorite coffee shops in the planet – Cornucopia Coffee and Sweet Shoppe.…… Continue reading Everyday Empathy
Bayfield County Welcomes Three New Coffee Roasters to the County
Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good cup of coffee. Sometimes, that’s hard to find in rural areas. Once again, the place I’m lucky enough to call home, is the exception to the rule. I’ve always been amazed by the bold lifestyle choices people make living here. It is definitely a work to…… Continue reading Bayfield County Welcomes Three New Coffee Roasters to the County
Barronett Bob (AKA Corn Man)
This past month I was reminded about the power of social media and journalism 101. While perusing Facebook, I saw a post that was being shared with hundreds about one of my favorite farmers in the world — Barronett Bob. Or, just the Corn Man. The rumor was he wasn’t going to be selling this…… Continue reading Barronett Bob (AKA Corn Man)
Iron River Coffee Anyone?
So a crazy thing happened today that I feel I need to share in hopes to help me pursue my dreams. If you know me at all, you know I’m a coffee addict. You also know that I absolutely love living on Moon Lake. But, for those close to me, you also know that Iron…… Continue reading Iron River Coffee Anyone?
Moon Lake summers are awesome… right up to those few days where temperatures surpass 80 degrees. It isn’t the heat but instead the humidity that drives me crazy. Crazy enough that after years of debate, my husband finally realized that if we didn’t get central air, our marriage might not survive. (It helped that I…… Continue reading Hot Enough?
I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas…
Last January I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with my good friend Clare Hintz of Elsewhere Farm. While I always enjoy hanging with her, this encounter was particularly special because I was drilling her about her year-round greenhouse for Northern Gardener Magazine. For years, Clare has inspired me with her passion for local…… Continue reading I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas…
The World’s Oldest Table
I must admit, I’ve become somewhat of a wood working snob over the years. In part, this is because my husband turns bowls and other treasures. Often times, the wood is local and has a story behind it. Or, not local with a story behind it… like the time we had to call TSA to…… Continue reading The World’s Oldest Table
The Intersection of Healthcare and Technology: My Firsthand Experience
Greetings from northern Wisconsin! This weekend I’m heading outside to enjoy what is sure to be fall peak in my neck of the woods. I couldn’t be more excited in part because this comes after a nearly a month of my entire family being sick. And, knock on wood, but right now we are all…… Continue reading The Intersection of Healthcare and Technology: My Firsthand Experience
My first memory of Hannah Stonehouse Hudson is of a newspaper ad I saw many moons ago. It was an ad for her business that featured a wedding shot where the bride’s face was in focus and her dress was blurred from spinning in circles. Now knowing Hannah, it seems appropriate. Somehow, despite her entire…… Continue reading Meet Hannah
