When she's not writing or photographing, Linze enjoys gardening, spending time with her husband and pets, cooking, baking, and grilling, and relaxing with trashy TV.
One thing we Illinoisians love is a great lakeside experience — whether it’s finding a unique dining option or a fun outdoor activity, we truly love the water.
