I am a Midwest girl. Recently moved back to my hometown. I have lived in OH, AR and NV, moving with my husband's employment. I felt it was time to get back to my roots in IL tho. We have 3 daughters and 3 granddaughters. Our oldest daughter is married and a legal sec., working in Chicago. Our middle daughter recently married and is an RN and works in Memphis and our youngest daughter is 20 and is attending community college. I enjoy family time with our granddaughters, auctions, shopping the outlet malls, cooking / baking, hiking our state parks, tv, music, internet chat, reading, some beading and of course our 2 cats...
