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.

Enjoying Fall

We've had beautiful weather the past couple of weeks here in Northern Illinois. Two weeks ago we went hiking along the Illinois River. Perfect blue sky, temperatures in the high 70's, and stunning scenery.

On Friday of this past week we headed to another forest preserve in Rockford and enjoyed a couple of hours hiking through changing colored leaves.

I entered a contest last week to win NIU football tickets. I ended up winning tickets to Saturday's homecoming game. We stopped by to see the decorated Huskie pups before the game.

The weather was perfect and it always helps when the home team wins!
