Hello!

I live in the beautiful lakeside city of Milwaukee, WI, where there are thousands of great things to do... if only you know about them. I never like doing a new thing for the first time, so I have learned to challenge myself and always do new things.

I'm constantly compiling a list of new places I want to go, restaurants I want to try, and things I want to do.  This blog is about doing all those things in Milwaukee or wherever I happen to go.  On Fridays, I write about what I'm reading that week.

My name is Laura, my cat is Dora. I'm from central Wisconsin and moved here in 2005 to attend UW-Milwaukee, where I received my bachelors degree in professional and technical writing in 2008. I worked in retail management for about ten years because I love meeting new people, and I love solving problems.  I am currently the Director of Human Resources at an engineering consulting company downtown here in MKE.

Welcome to my blog!
