I’m so excited to start writing every day. Writing is such a great release for me, but I haven’t given this hobby much of my time lately. So, welcome to my daily blog.
The picture on my home page was taken last summer in Colorado, one of my favorite places on earth. My dream growing up was to move to Colorado and drive a red jeep. Neither of these things came true, but both of my sons are living my dream- I mean, their dream.
Jimmy, 27, lives in Fort Collins with his girlfriend, Kristen, of eight years. Joey,25, lives right outside of Denver and lives with a buddy from high school. Jimmy is going to school to become a nurse, and Joey graduated from Western Illinois and is working for a food company in their sales department. I miss my boys terribly, but I’m so happy they are living in such a beautiful part of the country.
My daughter, Katie, 29, lives in Wicker Park with her boyfriend, Jason. She is a hair stylist and works in a unique salon that focuses on healing the spirit as well as making one feel beautiful. The Ruby Room is a perfect place of employment for Katie. It has a very calming environment, which she can use!
My husband, Jim, is a home builder and works for a company based out of Naperville. He used to build on his own, and even built our dream house in Downers Grove until everything crashed in 2005. Things have settled down in our lives and my husband and I have been enjoying the life of empty nesters, living in a two bedroom condo in Darien.
It’s crazy how life can change so quickly….
