Christmastime in Chicago

Christmastime in Chicago

  I have a tendency to write about food travel experiences in other parts of the world so often I don’t take time to share some of the wonderful things we have going on in our own hometown of Chicago. One of my favorite times of year is Christmastime in Chicago when the city really shines. […]

Nuremberg Christmas Market

  One of our favorite things to do during the holiday season is visit Christmas markets. Whether at home in Chicago or visiting in Europe we love them all.

  Visiting France has always been high on our travel planning lists. We enjoy the French way of life. The lifestyle of working to live, rather than living to work. Enjoying a glass of wine at lunch, savoring every meal and enjoying each day for all it’s worth feel just right to us. When we had […]

Consider A New Kind of Travel Shoes New Balance Chicago

  My name is Sue and I have way too many “travel” shoes. Many women (and men) might disagree and say you cannot have too many travel shoes, or any type of shoes for that matter. Having done an inventory I can tell you that I have 12 pairs of travel shoes. I have Keen, Merrell, Dansko, […]

Fall Flavors At Raised Chicago

Fall Flavors At Raised Chicago

  It’s no surprise that we love the fall season in Chicago. It’s such a beautiful time of year. Leaves are changing colors, there’s a nip in the air and we’re all snuggling together to keep warm. One of the wonderful things about fall in the Midwest is that you’re never sure if it’s going […]
