I enjoy finding those places that transport you to another time. One that is high on my list for local must sees is the Danada Forest Preserve. Danada is the former estate of Daniel Rice and his wife, Ada, racehorse enthusiasts who bred champion Thoroughbreds. With amazing conservation and educational programs, plus the overall history of Danada, it is hard not to fall in love with its rich character.
The Danada House...where my husband and I got married...sweet memories!

|I know a mum is a mum, but you can't beat their scrumptious colors in the fall!|
