Day 3: Plenty to be thankful for

Day 3: Hometown

Manic Mother

I am thankful for my hometown (a northern suburb near CHICAGO,IL).

I love that it is big and small (population is over 45,000) but it isn't that big.

I love that my hometown is over 100 years old and still growing/improving.

I love that we are close to Chicago/downtown fun...just hop on the L, metra train, or take the highway.

I love that my hometown has everything you need and then some (like our very own farm! and the kohls' children's museum! and a historic landmark that takes up back to the pioneer days!)

I love that we used to have a Naval Base in the middle of our town, and even though it is gone now, we still honor our service men/women.

I love that my hometown has the best soft serve ice cream stand :)

I love that it is a fun place to live and grow up.

I love that my hometown is my home!

Your turn to link-up :)


  1. Love this! And I'd love to be so close to Chicago. Perfect!

  2. I'm traveling to Chicago in a couple of weeks and cannot wait! :)

  3. Love this. My boss got married in your town!

  4. That's awesome. I have always wanted to visit Chicago, and next summer I am finally going to LeakyCon there. I can't wait!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leave a comment! They really do make me smile and I try my best to reply to each one!
