My husband loves barbecue, like LOVES it. He spent a month working in Kansas City, Missouri last year and every time he had the chance he would go out and discover a new BBQ joint. I think he went to like 6 or 7 different places before he left. We’ve never lived in the South, and I’m not sure we ever will (but who knows anything is possible) but barbecue holds a special place in our hearts.

My 3 Favorite Things to Do in Milwaukee – Summer 2013 Edition

Wish You Were Here Wisconsin (Milwaukee) by XO-LP

Today marks 3 months since we made the move to Milwaukee. It’s crazy to think about how long ago that seems but similarly, as if it was yesterday. Summer here has been good to us. I knew even before we set foot in Milwaukee, that we were moving here at the perfect time. Milwaukee is a busy place in the summer, there’s always something to do. With only a few days of summer left, I figured it was a good time to share with you a roundup of some of my summer favorites.

Margherita Pizza with Olive Oil Crust

We make pizza in our house at least every other week, if not once a week. It’s one of our favorite meals. So, over the next few Fridays, I am going to share with you some of my favorite pizza recipes.

Like a lot of things in our life, my Mom got us started on our pizza kick. We lived with my parents for about a year after I returned from Switzerland and before we moved to Iowa. We started making homemade pizza pretty regularly when we lived with them and the practice has followed us wherever we’ve moved.

Wyoming Adventure - Part II


I had every intention of posting these photos days ago but time has just not been on my side lately. I can’t believe we were in Wyoming two weeks ago. I feel like we just got back from our trip. I started a new job last week and the husband has been crazy at work, so it seems like the last week has just been sucked into some crazy vortex.

These are the last of the photos I wanted to share from our trip to Wyoming. It was such an incredible experience and my mind continually drifts off to the mountains, quiet river and unbelievable time we had on this adventure.
