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.

Sunny and Warm

Today it felt like spring, 65 degrees and sunny. Just absolutely beautiful. My son and I headed to Esther's Place-Fiber Art studio to take a hands on class with needle felting. I had no interest in taking this "class" but any excuse to surround myself with fiber I'm there.

He really had a great experience and came home with more fiber to play with.

We came home, picked up the other members in our family, and headed outside to do our first geocaching of the year. We found 3 different hidden caches at NIU campus. I found the first cache in an area known for the "kissing bench". Here I am sitting on the big stone bench that is located right under a heart shaped tree.

Our second find for the afternoon was titled The Trolls Treasure which we found underneath one of the walking bridges around the lagoon. Here's my eldest so proud of his find.

It felt so good to leisurely stroll around in the beautiful spring weather.
