April in Wisconsin brings *hopefully* those first starts of green in the gardens and on the trees, but that's not all - it's baby farm animal season!


There are several great farms and events for the whole family to cuddle the sweetest barnyard critters. Here are my three favorite farms for lambing & kidding season!

Homestead farm Lambing Day | April 8

Brit McCoy's female-run sheep farm is brimming with lambs! She's hosting a Lambing Day at her Belleville farm on Saturday, April 8 from 9:00-Noon. The farmstand will be open to buy Homestead Farm's products, and Candance Dolan will be hosting photography sessions with the lambs. Check out Brit's IG page @homesteadwisconsinfarm for all the deets!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but your agent's opinion is useless to you.
Hear me out...as a real estate agent, my job is to best represent YOU. The whole transaction is about you and your best interest.
This is why I don't share my opinions with my clients.

???? Instead, I share facts based on our current market. ????
For instance, I may tell you that before you list your home, it would be best to paint your kitchen or pre-pack your collection of dog figurines.
It's not because I think your kitchen is ugly or because I don't like dogs (quite the opposite, really!) ????
It's because I know that buyers see certain paint colors as an obstacle that keeps them from picturing themselves living in your home.

It's because I know that pre-packing…

Spring is Coming!

Here are 3 easy ways to make your home feel like spring this season!

1. Crack open the windows! Nothing screams spring like fresh air. This is also a great time to wash your windows and your curtains! (Have you gotten your copy of my Homeowner Checklist? Drop your contact info and I can send you this month's list of monthly tasks to maintain your home!)

2. Swap linens. Exchange your heavier, winter fabrics for light colored cotton. Throw pillows, throw blankets, hand towels, and your sheets are all great places to do this!

3. Purchase a fresh bouquet of flowers from a local florist, here are some great recommendations:

Daffodil Parker was my wedding florist and I'm obsessed. Modern blooms in unique arrangements that…

Just in time for Valentine's and Galentine's Days, here are my suggestions for the perfect date night in Madison...

For the Girl's Night Out (aka Galentine's Day), I recommend the unique cocktails and killer vibe at Mint Mark. Then head to the square for an awesome dinner at the recently renovated Merchant and dessert (and more cocktails) at Lucille! Lucille late night brings in DJs for a great dance party to end the night!

 
For the Adventurers, check out the classic hole in the wall dive bar in Westmorland - Village Bar - try the Burger and don't forget the Fries. Next head to the West Side staple, Ultra Zone, for some lazer tag because "Why Not?" and end the night with drinks at the electric bar, Le Tigre Lounge off Midvale.

I am so honored to share that I was a guest last month on episode 10 of the local podcast, “This Could Have Been An Email!” Produced and hosted by two amazing local Madison women, Alex Suazo and Nicole Vafadari, TCHBAE shares their “honest opinions about drivers in [their] careers, [their] perspectives and struggles, bringing [their] whole selves to work and related challenges, and badass women doing and going through the same.” Hop on over to Spotify to listen and follow the podcast!

Solveig Splash Pad 1) I have to start in my hometown of Stoughton at the Nordic Ridge Splash Pad. It's primary color theme is bright and inviting as it's really a "neighborhood" park it's NEVER crowded (still!)/ There's an awesome accessible playground right next to it with two covered areas for parents to enjoy the shade and keep an eye on the kiddos. The huge green space is wonderful to run around and roll down the hill too! This summer the Stoughton Public Library and Stoughton Parks & Rec are putting on free family Movies in the Park 2 Friday nights each in July, August, and September. Check the Parks & Rec website for dates & more details! 2) Wetmore Park is a new (completed in 2021) splash pad in Sun Prairie that we discovered last summer. Its darling…

June is here! It's time to celebrate summer in Wisconsin. One of the best times of the year, when the cold is finished and before the bugs really start coming out. These are 4 of our family's favorite things to do around Madison in June:

1) Our number one favorite thing to do in June is strawberry picking.

Strawberry season is fairly short and it's super weather dependent, so you really need to put it at the top of your priority list to make sure you find a time to do it. Carandale Fruit Farm is our go-to, located in Oregon. Check their facebook page for daily updates, including the official start to the U-Pick season - they are predicting the start of the season to be around June 9-13 and ending around July 4-10. They will also…
