Favorite room in this house: The kitchen is definitely the heart of our home. No matter how many people are gathered around the island, it still feels comfortable, and there is always room for more. We enjoy watching the birds, bunnies, and chipmunks from the eat-in area.

Favorite thing about Naperville: The amenities in Naperville are second to none in the suburbs. We take advantage of a number of parks in the area. We can be downtown after just a short walk on the Riverwalk. We have lived in a number of suburbs throughout Chicagoland but have finally found our home.

A family tradition: Every year we go to a local tree farm and cut down our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. We all bundle up and go in search of the perfect tree. The tree farm serves hot chocolate to help fight off the chill. And they have many animals on the property to help keep the kids entertained.
