I grew up in Decatur. It is a wonderful city, but as I grew my heart drifted toward Springfield. And the truth is that is where I met the love of my life.

While much of what I share is about this great city of ours I will from time write about the other aspects of Illinois. Something that is second in line after Springfield.

While it is true we have Chicago, Springfield, at least for me has more. It is more affordable and it has the features that I always wanted in a city.

There are many hidden gems here and I hope to share some of them with you!
