How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

What else happened?

I'm really bad at responding to being tagged for a meme. It all goes back to the elementary school days where I was IT the entire recess because I was the fattest kid in school and unable to tag anyone.

While browsing JenLa I came across a recent meme and thought it was entertaining. Don't worry I'll be it and I'm not going to tag anyone at the end of this post.

Here are the guidelines:

Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday.
