My name is Judy, and I have recently been able to jump out of an employment centered life in Healthcare to a more self-centered life in my Midwestern hometown. By that I mean that I can experience my personal life all the time when and where I want to and not have to worry or think about my employment security! The whole change for me is so awesome. Don’t get me wrong—I was in a wonderful career. But, I also longed for more in-depth experiences that I just couldn’t really get into while working—my own personal issues!
At any rate, I finally have the time to spread my wings, lift off and fly into a whole new liberated part of life I have craved. My time is spent babysitting for my new Grand baby fixin’ up my “new house” I just moved into 6 months ago, diving deep into a more healthy lifestyle, cooking up a storm, and so much more. I’m pretty sure there are many of you out there who can relate.
I live in Illinois in a small city and was born and raised here. The Midwest has so much to offer in terms of personal growth, family and friends, and career opportunities. My husband and I met and fell in love in Chicago, married and settled downstate. We have 2 wonderful children, their significant others, and a new grand baby. My sister and her family (plus 2 cute doggies) and my father round out our close family picture and happy lifestyle. It’s a great life!
I love to write about how my life has changed from one of a crazy busy employed person focused more on work to an enthusiastic and hopeful woman who gets to do all the things she wants–well mostly! Some of the topics my blog will focus on are family and friends, cooking, photography, home decorating and gardening, and life practices that boost humor and build a positive and cheerful attitude. Can’t wait to share with and to hear from you! –Judy
