Say Bye Bye Illinois, But Don’t Cry!

I have to say, for the most part, I like living here in the Chicagoland area. Lived in the city and several suburbs and it has worked for me for most of my adult life.. I’m tiring of the winters as I get a few more years under my belt and the taxes and lack of some services do play a part on us looking warmer and sunnier.
