#HausofMeier: Welcome

HOME DESIGN, WHAT THE ______?! The excitement of no longer renting four walls but owning a home we can call our very own triggers that childlike excitement I possess for all new, exciting life chapters. What may appear to be off–brand to you, feels more so right to me. I have an array of interests, home…

The Apostle Islands. A holy name for a heavenly place. My first discovery of the Apostle Islands was on Pinterest of all places. Images of the infamous ice caves made an appearance on my search which led me into a deep dive to learning more about this destination. It was at that moment, years before…

Why I am not just a travel blogger anymore…

I fought it for a long while. I didn’t want to be an all-encompassing blog. I wanted to focus merely on travel, mostly pertaining to my home state of Wisconsin. But life happens and travel is a lot easier when you aren’t a new homeowner with a lot of projects and expenses. Tack on the…

WisConcierge Blog

What is love to you? A short while back, I explained a recent practice I have been incorporating into my days, and it is focusing on and dissecting what a word means to me. It is a limitless exercise, meaning it can mean anything to anyone – no need to place restrictions on how you…

Write what you know…

WisConcierge Blog Post

Everyone is an authority on anything and everything now-a-days. So many bloggers writing endless posts on “How to’s” or simply writing content not to necessarily serve you but instead for click bait. And I stand by this notion, no matter what critics say. Digital marketing is a business, and in this current age, blogs are…

Anxiety is…

WisConcierge Blog Post

In my ongoing quest for mindfulness and self-improvement, I decided to start focusing on a word or a feeling and dissecting it to see what it really means to me. This is obviously going to be different for everyone. And I will say that this practice has really helped me become even more self-aware and…

Hiking the North Kettles

When I dreamt up the idea of this blog, my main goal was to foster community. I wanted to immerse myself in my new home state, meet other people who shared similar passions and share my journey and discoveries with others beyond the screen. Since moving, it has been a whirlwind. We are new homeowners,…
