on thunderstorms and how I never made it to broadway paper...


So my time in Milwaukee is quickly coming to an end. I will be outta here by morning...early morning. It was a great short trip packed with a nice long walk, dinner along the river and growling thunderstorms. That's new for me since this Cali girl rarely gets to experience storms of any kind. The agency set up a really cool "get to know Milwaukee" tour for us. It really is a novel idea. A gentleman came and picked us up from the Metro and then proceeded to take us on a fabulous tour of the city. A few days prior, the company sent us a questionnaire asking us what we liked to do, the type of living situation we preferred and based on our responses, created a tour tailored to us. I have to say we loved the Third Ward and could totally picture living there. We saw a bunch of beautiful lofts all facing the river with huge balconies and tons of space. It's really a sweet little city with a small town feel...oh and a hour and a half to Chicago doesn't hurt.

My only worry would be the weather. The folks walking around didn't seem the least bit phased by the pouring rain. I on the other hand love looking at rain but not really having to do anything in it which could be a problem. After a while it cleared up a bit and I decided to take a small trek to Broadway Paper while Keith took care of business. Only problem...I didn't quite know where it was and relied on the doorman of my hotel which was really a doorboy with a terrible sense of direction. I just kept walking and walking and walking...in the wrong direction. By the time I realized it and made it all the way back to where I started...I was sweating like a pig and a little bit mad. Sorry Broadway Paper...i'll hit you up next time. So that was it. Home tomorrow. We'll see how things go. We're indecisive so who knows.

I love, love, love Broadway Paper, so sad that the door-boy sent you on a wild goose chase. I have never been to Chicago but my hubby's bff went to Northwestern so he has spent a lot of time there. Maybe one day...
Big decision for you (moving). I don't envy that one at all, but you are young and don't have kids yet so good time to take chances and have some adventure, you can always come back.. Keep us posted!

yeah...not so young, but the kid part is true:) It is such a huge decision and not an easy one. Excited at the prospect but still a bit unsure.
