About




Melissa's love for travel was sparked years ago on family trips throughout the East Coast. Every long weekend found the family in the car exploring the many historic sites and nature preserves. During these trips, Melissa enjoyed visiting local artists, savoring an old fashioned peppermint stick from a mom-and-pop, walking in the footsteps of historic figures and soaking in the wonders that nature has created.

A Little Time and a Keyboard began in 2011 as a way to share hidden treasures in the Chicago suburbs as well as the Midwest focusing on local businesses, attractions and natural gems. Melissa's goal is to encourage families to explore and learn through experiencing all of these treasures as she did as a child. Through visiting local artists, small businesses and local attractions, travelers can get a really appreciation for the locale they are visiting.

On their family trips, Melissa, her husband and 13-year-old daughter strive to really experience an area by visiting local businesses the shed light into what makes the area unique. We also search out items made in the area to bring a little piece of that place home with us. A Little Time and a Keyboard serves as a place to share these discoveries.

Join my family on our journeys as we explore nature, the arts, small businesses, local eateries, made in USA locations and unique family attractions throughout the Chicago suburbs and on trips throughout the Midwest and East Coast as well as other locations. If you know of a unique spot in the Chicago area, feel free to let me know. I love to check out unique spots discovered by my readers. My journey is about you and the incredible fabric that makes every place distinctive.
