Let’s be honest. Even when you love your city, you still need a break from it. So I’m doing just that! Road trips are one of the easiest ways to escape, and one of Chicago’s best qualities is that it borders six states which make great getaways. So far I’ve done Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Dubuque and Des Moines, but this time, I’m headed much further east. D.C. here I come!My first thought when planning a road trip usually revolves around how long of a ride I can handle in my compact honda civic. But last spring I traded it in for the much more comfortable, Honda HRV. Meet Sooky.

If you’re the type to shy away from attention, this car isn’t for you. People constantly stop me around town to take a peek. I can understand it though. It’s been quite a while since Honda revealed a new car.
I spent some time at Fletcher Jones Honda getting a complimentary oil change as well as getting more acquainted with all of Sooky’s innards, levels, and tire air to make sure she’s road trip-ready. She’s brand spanking new so as expected, she’s in the clear! But before I hit the road, I have to make sure my fur-babies bags are packed just right.I put this checklist together for Buddha, but feel free to use it for your fur-baby. Now we’re ready to roll. Thirteen hours and five states later we arrived at Hotel George and it quickly became my favorite hotel. From the lobby to the suite, each and every detail was well planned and aesthetically pleasing. Take a look. Shortly after checking in we took a stroll up Capital Hill to take in some sights and find a local spot for dinner.
