I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.
I've lived in Wisconsin all of my life. I've visited other states and have friends and family who have moved to other states only to return to Wisconsin (eventually). I love our four seasons. However, of the four seasons, I'm the least fond of winter. I love the first snowfall and taking brisk walks when it isn't too cold or slippery. I hate driving on slick roads (because of other people who don't know how to drive on them) and the bitter cold that takes one's breath away. I do know that there are people who really enjoy what snow offers - skiing, snowboarding, skating, sledding, etc. I enjoy sledding and skating, too, when time permits.
I hope that we do get a bit more snow for those who enjoy the winter sports and outdoor options available to us, as well as the income that some businesses get from snowfalls.
And when the first crocus plants peak out of the snowy landscapes, we know that Spring is not far behind.
Enjoy what will be and will be to come.
