Welcome To The Long Weekend


Strong and barely controllable emotion.


I have a strong and barely controllable emotion towards travel. Eating while traveling and sharing my experiences – it’s what I live for.

I have a full time gig in digital ad sales so my travel typically calls for a weekend… a long weekend. Like jet setting from a Thursday to a Monday so you’re “not really” missing any work…

And every so often it’s a really really long weekend. Like two weekends with a bunch of weekdays in the middle. A girl’s gotta live a little, right?

When I’m not on a plane, I’m at home in Chicago livin’ it up in River North with my husband and 2 boys, family, and friends – planning my next adventure, checking out new Chicago restaurants, taking yoga or kickboxing or dance, and sharing itineraries and funny stories from my travels.

So welcome to my world. I hope this inspires you to travel and eat no matter your budget, time constraints, work, or personal obligations. Just go. No excuses.

Life is short. Make your weekend long.
