Welcome to Northwoods Lifestyle! Here you can learn about the people, the land, the cultures and lifestyles of northern WI. Basically I’m just a gal, who really loves the area I live, the lifestyle northern WI provides me, its amazing scenery and wildlife and the vast amount of recreational activities. In fact I love it so much I decided to share it with the world, plus I needed a creative outlet because I love to write articles and short stories. However, I must warn you my love for writing does not come with the best grammar or punctuation, so if you are the grammar police you may find my articles highly irritating but if you think you can handle it, I promise you will learn a lot about northern WI and see some beautiful images as well. So who am I? I am a women in her mid 30’s, a mother to the most amazing little girl, and a wife to a great man. I have a Psychology degree and am working towards becoming a Mental Health/AODA counselor. My day job title is currently a program counselor to those who have been dual diagnosed with mental illness and substance abuse, I love helping people. After all “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others, and if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.” ~ Dalai Lama. Outside of my career and family life, I have always been an independent and creative soul with a love for the outdoors and a passion for adventure. At home you can find me in my flower and herb gardens, potting shed and hanging with my chickens (Lily & Daisy) and dogs (Hunter, Mya and Wilson). If I am not at home on my days off or running errands I am outside in the woods, thrifting/antiquing or driving the back roads of northern WI, camera in hand. I hope you enjoy this site and the articles I post.
Have a great day!
