30 Days of Biking, Northwoods Style

Back in August, I scrapped my car and challenged myself to explore what it would be like to walk and cycle everywhere.

Girl from the Northwoods Plans Your Valentine’s Day: Meg

As luck will have it, this year’s Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday – which, for the average adult, means you can actually do something with your evening and not regret going to bed later than 9:oo pm. A typical Valentine’s Day date might consist of a romantic dinner followed by a movie at your local … Continue reading
