Spring is finally here! The flowers are blooming and there is something about the fresh air that brings new life and opportunities. I thought it would be fun to highlight a few of the ways I’m trying to support our community now that it’s warming up. I hope that these ideas will inspire you and your family to get outside and support local.

  • Get Outside – Biking or walking, the Glacial River bike path screams summer. There’s nothing better than catching up with a friend, or taking the family for a nice walk or bike ride on this well-kept path. Bonus points for stopping at Frostie’s or the Jones Market for a delicious treat.
  • Eat Al’Fresco – As a mom of two now, coffee gives me life and my favorite place for coffee is Beauty and the Bean. My go-to order is an iced coffee and a gluten free peanut butter cookie, always. I love how Beauty and the Bean offers options for all and has outdoor seating.
  • Gardening– Gardening is a hobby I’m trying to learn. I love how the whole family can be involved in growing your own vegetables and fruits. My personal go-to location is Blodgett’s If you don’t have a green thumb, Farmer’s Markets are making their way back in our lives again (Fort Atkinson, Whitewater and Watertown, to name a few) and I’m here for it.
  • Volunteer – What a wonderful way to support our community! Whether you volunteer to clean up a local park, donate items to a local charity or family in need or even simply spending time with someone who needs it; the benefits of taking the time to do something kind for someone else fulfils our innate desire to have purpose.

Happy Spring!
