We'll be moving within the next couple weeks into our new home. It's a 2 story cottage on the bluffs of the Illinois river. We will own from the top of the bluff to the river. I'll post pics when we get settled in. There may be a short interim when I won't be on, so not to worry, I'll be back. In the meantime, I found a nice little internet article about my new home town, and thought you might want to have a look. It's a gorgeous place, and we're very proud to live out here in bumble-frig :lol:

How far will you be from St Louis? My husband is originally from Illinois (he went to U of IL) so I've been to the midwest (Chicago, Champagne/Urbana, St Louis) :)

Congrats on your new place :) Dexter will be happy to have extra space too (will you have a yard?).

We're just catty-cornered across the river from St.L., by St. Charles. There is a small back and side yard which we're going to fence, and then you cross the highway and there's a huge front yard leading to the river. Of course there will be no highway crossing without mommy or daddy!

When you get setteled, pm me with your nature "discoveries!" I LOVE that sort of stuff!! :D

Diane, your pics are fabulous! I had an awesome camera but I sold it during leaner times. But I might be able to get some good shots with my HP digital. We will likely have bald eagles sitting in our front yard come winter. The ferry runs about 1/4 mile from us.

Thanks for all the well wishes everyone, I am so excited to be moving into a house again!

AnnMarie, did you follow the link to the Joe Page expansion bridge? It's the largest expansion span bridge in the world, and I can see it right now from my window! (historic, but a pain in the butt to the locals :lol:)
