Hello Wisconsin!

(That would be said in Ashton Kutcher’s voice from That 70’s Show. He says it at the end of the song. I hear it every time I look out the window.)


The day we arrived, guess what we got to see?


Since then the snow has melted but what a heart-lifter.

Population: 5,000
1 stop light.
1 grocery store.
Surrounded by dairy farms.

And snow, snow, snow!

When I checked out at the grocery store, the young man who bagged my groceries was so friendly, I thought he might jump right in my bag. I couldn’t help but laugh a little. It was too cute.

As I left the store, I whispered to myself, “I think I’m gonna like it here.”

And somebody gets to try out all those tiny winter clothes sent from cousin Mary! (A big thank you to Mary for adding to her fashion cuteness!)
