Feature Articles


A meandering road trip and a suggested best itinerary? I’m already packing up the car (and relishing my planned stops at diners and B&Bs along the route)! How to research my family tree? I learned I’m descended from a long line of Austrian dairy farmers! Cool! Fun new ways to spend time together as a family? Count me in.

In fact, when it comes to Jen’s writing about travel and tourism, parenting and family issues, and so very much more, count me all in. Jen’s written for me on assignment for more than half a decade now. Reliable? Speedy? An original voice? That’s all true of Jen. Let’s face it: She’s just darn old delightful and a pleasure to work with.
