Number of years in Naperville: 16
Number of years in house: 2 1/2
Favorite room in this house: Family room/kitchen/dinette.It’s open yet cozy and I love the fireplace. It’s the perfect combination of rustic along with the eclectic decor. I like looking out the windows when I’m sitting in that part of the house. I can see Centennial Beach, the Riverwalk, the Carillon and Rotary Hill in the winter.
Favorite thing about Naperville: We love the sense of community here, and we really enjoy living in downtown Naperville. My husband and I walk to restaurants, shops, festivals, parades, events, and of course The Last Fling. It’s a dream come true.
How do you spend your time in naperville: I volunteer as a patient advocate for Edward Hospital, I am on the Naperville Newcomers and Neighbors board as their publicity chair, and co-chair the “Let’s Do Lunch” activity for the NNNC. We also love Naperville restaurants!
