Many Happy Returns
Naomi, in town from Manitowoc, accompanied her husband on a business trip to Milwaukee. It was the couple’s first time at the hotel and they were eager to discover the history of the 125 year old landmark. The pair are the proud parents of four children, ages, 22, 20, 16 and 14. Both are delighted that their offspring have grown into kind, trustworthy people who make good decisions. The siblings enjoy each other’s company, recently watching the NCAA Championship Games together, despite being in three different cities, by utilizing group chat. The foursome cheered on their favorite team while their parents explored Milwaukee, happy to allow the children the time to deepen their relationships with each other independently.
The wife and mother is also a writer, authoring several blogs and three yet-to-be-published children’s books. A storyteller since childhood, she loves sharing her tales, and connecting with other creators, spending time with new Artist in Residence, Rosy Petri in her studio during her visit. Later, after staying the evening in the Tower, the couple explored the historic side of the building, admiring the original marble of the Grand Staircase, and the traces from the early years of the landmark on display in the mezzanine.
Before heading back home, the pair took advantage of the sunny and mild weather, leaving their bags and taking to the streets for a stroll down Wisconsin Avenue. Making their way toward Lake Michigan, the couple explored the Calatrava-designed portion of the Milwaukee Art Museum, marveling at the sunlight sparking through the 90 feet of glass panes that cap Windhover Hall in the Quadracci Pavilion.
All too soon, their Milwaukee adventure was over, and they collected their bags with promises to return. We can’t wait to see them again and to help them uncover more Pfister magic on their next visit.
