Hi! Thanks for your interest in the blog. I’m Alyson; mom to 2 kids, girlfriend, coffee addict, wine drinker and lover of all things Milwaukee. In 2012 we left our home in sunny Southern California to fulfill our dream of living in Wisconsin. We love our life in Milwaukee and work hard to keep in close contact with family back home. Brookelyn is 14, going on 25. She is such a light in my life. Always chatting, willing to help and will be anyone’s best friend. She loves to dive, hang out with her friends, helping others and of course, shopping. It took us much longer to bring another child into our family than we’d ever expected and I’m incredibly thankful that 9 years ago we were blessed with a sweet baby boy, Cohen. He’s such a fun little man! If it wears a cape & a mask, he’s probably obsessed. Cohen loves Taekwondo and ice skating. He’s also my lovey, snugly, sweet little guy (when he’s not being a crazy animal).My kids are a huge inspiration to me, to my writing, and everything you’ll see here on the blog. I love crafting, writing, drawing, painting, diy-ing, decorating a room, sewing, coffee, wine, shopping, thrifting, anything vintage, party planning and so much more. It’s been nearly 5 years now that we’ve lived in Milwaukee and we absolutely love it. This city has so much to offer, and is full of history. It’s turned out to be so much more than we ever even hoped for.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you’ll say hi and introduce yourself to me!
I have had some really wonderful opportunities through blogging and have working relationships with some fabulous companies like Door to Door Organics, Deco Art, World Market, Linqia, Pear Tree Greetings, DriveShop, Clever Girls and more. I’m always happy to work with new companies as well.
