Santa is on His Way to the Indiana State Museum #ISMCelebration

In our family we are pretty traditional when it comes to what we do every year during the holidays. I use the same Christmas dishes, listen to the same music, use the same decorations- you get the point.  Something else we stick to is where we visit to celebrate Christmas as well as ring in…

Discover Historic Irvington

I knew my Grandmother was a trendsetter in her time.  She seemed to know who had the best iced tea, the tastiest chicken salad, the hottest coffee and the newest fashionable wear.  Several times over the years she told me Irvington, an area she grew up on the east side of Indianapolis, was going to…

DunesWalk Inn and The Indiana Dunes

My family doesn’t know this but I have a bucket list of sorts. Not just for where I want to go or what I want to learn how to cook, but things I want to try. Experiences that I am either too afraid to try, don’t know how to do it or I haven’t visited…

Indianapolis Indians And YOU! A Subscriber Only Giveaway…

Who doesn’t love a baseball game? The roar of the crowd, the crack of the bat, the fun in the stands. It is the ultimate in family togetherness, in my opinion.  We are a baseball family and in my lifetime I cannot tell you how many Indianapolis Indians Games I have attended at both the…

Bluespring Caverns and a Creamy Greek Pasta Salad….
