I live with my husband, daughter, and two dogs in Chicagoland. I enjoy running, traveling (whenever I have the chance and the funds), and spending time with my family. I am super-organized and make lots of lists.
When I was in college, I read lots of Hemingway; now, I read cheesy vampire novels, and any items from Slate, the New York Times and Harvard Business Review that show up in my news feed. Currently, I work in the world of corporate communications. So, my writing style is a hybrid of some pretty random influences.
As for travel, Venice and Edinburgh are my two favorite places I’ve visited only once and hope to return to someday. But these days, R&R is a big priority, so I’m trying to get away from big cities, heading to the beach instead. I’ve never taken a cruise, but that doesn’t appeal to me, anyways.
I am arranging this blog into three categories, to start with:
- Big Trips, where I’ll share stories and tips from trips I’ve taken
- Local Color Chicago, where I’ll write reviews of restaurants and attractions in the Chicago area
- In the Making, where I’ll share things I learn in the vacation-planning process
I’m new to blogging but I think I’ll like it. Thanks for visiting my site!
