Our home in NE Chicago suburbs is a restful retreat close to the adventures in the city. Nearby parks are great for walks, the train is nearby to go to the city, and historic Glen Ellyn and Wheaton are great for dining and evening walks.
My wife created a serene setting in our home for restful and peaceful times. Its very light and open here - a good place to stay after busy adventures in the big city.
Our home is environmentally safe as we do not use any pesticides, heavy cleaners, or other toxic products - of course, no smoking here ...
I go jogging in our quiet neighborhood (good 1.2m loop) and take our dog River to the local playground down the street
