6 More Things I'm Thankful For...

After a year and a half in the Midwest (after five years in South Florida) , today I am thankful for Small Town, USA.

The people are friendlier, the community is closer, and just about everyone reaches out a hand to help someone in need. In terms of places that I want my son (and future children) to grow up, we have found our paradise. From Main Street to the county fair, Paint the Town, the Christmas Walk, and all of the other fun year-round festivals, it is family-friendly fun all the time. I am so thankful that ministry brought us here where we have met some of the most wonderful people on earth (and I truly mean that to those of you from around here who read this) and have been able to put down some roots. Never in my life did I think that my first child would be born in Northwest Illinois, but I could not be happier about it! I will forever be a small town girl at heart.


  1. I have to tell you that I had a dream last night that we moved to Small Town, IL and joined your church...and I was beside myself because our boys could hang out and I could have a mommy friend. Then I woke was disappointing that it wasn't true! :)

  2. Oh my goodness I LOVE that plan!!! :) One of these days we WILL have to get the boys together since we've watched them grow. Small Town, IL would love to have the Brillante's!
