The coronavirus pandemic has changed our everyday life, but it doesn't need to change who we are. So, in addition to our ongoing coverage of the coronavirus, OnMilwaukee will continue to report on cool, fun, inspiring and strange stories from our city and beyond. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay informed and stay joyful. We're all in this together. #InThisTogetherMKE
It's been a doozy lately, Milwaukee. I know it, you know it. So, let's bring smiles however we can – and this is just one small way to do so.
Earlier this week, I was looking for a way to shine some light on a few close to me and didn't really have the appropriate cards I was looking for. So, I dug into my Christmas bin to see what I had handy and found what I was looking for!
OnMilwaukee is doing a number of things to bring us all "virtually" together – such as this happy hour, giving suggestions on ways to connect via your phone or computer and more. But going old school and dropping a letter in the mail is unexpected and not planned out.
You can just do it whenever you want to. It made me feel better about our current situation, and based on the responses I got back from friends, it helped just a little bit for them too. Cause we are #inthistogethermke.
Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of OnMilwaukee's social media and content direction, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times.
What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. She works as hard as she plays - and that includes in the gym! So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying a cold one at a local pub.
All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
