Roadtrip Adventure: Indianapolis to Chicago

by Jenni Ingersoll on March 11, 2013

Roadtrip — the mere mention of this type adventure conjures up images of a Griswold-style vacation and a wood-paneled station wagon loaded with cranky travelers. Still, knowing these adventures are the fodder for lifetime memories, we accept the challenge each time vowing that this trip will be better than the last. Driving from Indianapolis to […]


Chicago Getaway Weekend: Unplanned & Unscripted

by Jenni Ingersoll on February 13, 2013

I am a planner by nature.  I have lists for everything and no where does this quirk in my personality come into play more than when I travel.  Imagine my apprehension when an impromptu trip to Chicago, with not one family but two,  forced me to venture out without a prearranged agenda.

Photo Friday: Chicago’s O’Hare Airport at Night

by Mary Jo Manzanares on April 22, 2011


By day, airports are a crowded, busy place, full of frenetic energy and emotions as people are traveling from one place to another.
