Number of years in house: 15

Favorite room in this house: The kitchen is my favorite room in the house because it is the epicenter of our lives. With four kids, everything has always taken place in the kitchen. Meals at every time of the day, homework, and conversations. We both come from large families that all live in the area. The kitchen is so big, that is where we do all of our entertaining.

Favorite thing about Naperville: Downtown! We are within walking distance from downtown.

A family tradition you’d like to share: Family dinners. Whenever we have an occasion to celebrate such as birthdays, holidays, engagements, graduations and achievements,THIS is the gathering place!
