I had some extra time this week, so I used it to visit the Cambridge at Liberty Grove sales offices. I’m glad I did!

cambridge water parkLiz Sieben is one of the sales managers at Liberty Grove and I spent a few minutes talking with her about the community. She was very helpful and gave me some valuable information on the floor plans of the models they offer. She also shared that there is an on-site elementary school as well as a private community zero-depth pool. This photo is the Liberty Grove Water Park!

I was so impressed with how big and well planned these homes were that I wanted to you to see for yourself. Click on the links below to view the shows I created for the models at Liberty Grove.

Let me show you how I can save you money on your new home purchase!

I got an idea about a week ago to begin featuring local area builders. My plan is to be able to help buyers quickly identify the features, price, and amenities they were looking for in their new home, and have a place to preview them all in one location.

Plainfield Water Tower

I know that not everyone who moves to Plainfield is going to be building a new construction home, but since most of these builders are local area developers, there is a very good chance that the community that you are considering was built by at least one of them!

My goal is to have all of the builders in Plainfield soon!

Stay tuned.

Plainfield will once again join the fight against cancer.

American Cancer Society Relay for Life / What to Do in Plainfield, ILThe American Cancer Society and residents of Plainfield, Illinois can participate in the Relay for Life this June 30th, 2007 by registering for the event here.

The Relay for Life is an overnight event taking place at Plainfield North High School at 12005 S. 248th Avenue, Plainfield, IL. [map]

The Relay brings together those that have been touched by cancer in the Plainfield community. During the event team members take turns walking or running laps. Each team will try to keep a member of their group on the track at all times.

At the end of the Relay there is a Luminaria Ceremony that honors the memory of those that we have lost in the Plainfield community to cancer. It is an extremely emotional part of the event… you will need tissues. dad

My mom and sister participated in Relay for Life in 2003 in Joliet… which happened to fall on the 1 year anniversary of losing my dad to cancer. My dad lost his battle with esophageal cancer on May 28th, 2002. He was just 62 years old.

This is one of my favorite pictures of him… doing what he loved to do… FISH!!!

If he could have done one thing before he died, I know it would have been to teach his grandkids how to fish! They were all so young when he got sick.

We found out he had cancer a few weeks before my husband Tony and I got married. We were all just about to move into our new homes here in Plainfield during that time too. I guess I should mention that my parents, my sister and her family, and husband and I all built new homes in the same subdivision! Little did we know how beneficial it would prove to be as my dad’s illness progressed.

I’m looking forward to participating in the Plainfield Relay for Life this year.

It’s been 5 years, and I sure do miss that guy…

Ooooh, does this mean I don’t have to make breakfast this weekend?!

Plainfield Volunteer Fire Department Hosts 46th Annual Pancake BreakfastThis Sunday, March 25th, 2007, the Plainfield Volunteer Fire Department is hosting its 46th Annual Pancake Breakfast at Fire Station #1, located at 15025 Des Plaines, Plainfield, IL 60544. [map]

I should probably mention that this is an ALL YOU CAN EAT event!

Maybe… I should warn them we are coming!!!

This past fall I was driving to a Dr.’s appointment for one of the kids. I was running late and decided to take a detour through a newly redesigned street. Drauden Road had been closed for awhile and now I know why!!! A new subdivision, Springbrook of Plainfield, was being developed.

Springbank of Plainfield is a custom home community made up of several local home builders.

Springbank LogoThis week I decided to stop by and preview the models to see for myself why it was featured in the 2006 Chicago Sun-Times Cavalcade of Homes and I wasn’t disappointed!

This 250-acre custom home community is amazing!!! I visited a model called the Gibson – and I was absolutely blown away by its design!

This home by Hometown Builders was designed with families in mind.

Hometown Builders is only one of the many builders offering new construction homes in this community. I met with Janine in the sales office when I previewed one of the floor plans available from them for construction.

If you have kids... can you imagine spending the summers at the community’s 9-acre aquatic center?! They have water slides, a zero-depth swimming pool, and competitive lap and diving pools.

If you’ve been looking for a custom home in a well planned development, right near the heart of Plainfield, IL, you have to visit this community. Priced from the mid 400’s, and ranging to the mid 600’s, it is an amazing custom home value!

Besides, there is a charming one-lane bridge within walking distance of the neighborhood that crosses the Du Page River! The community is also a short distance from Plainfield Central High-school which is part of the highly sought after Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202.

If your looking for a new construction, custom home in Plainfield, you owe it to yourself to visit these models. If your like me, you’ll want to move in… this weekend!

We hadn’t even been married for 4 days when I started my search for the nearest Humane Society here in Plainfield…

I ambushed my newly married husband, at his first day back at work since our wedding!

“Hi baby… watcha doing?” (Said in my sweetest voice, of course!!!)

“You know… I was just driving through that downtown area in Plainfield… you know, near 59 and Division Street? Yeah, I came across the Humane Society of Plainfield here in town…. it was so weird… I didn’t even know it was there…” (Uh-oh! He’s on to me.)

“I stopped in to see the puppies…” (Silence on the other end… not good… think, think, think.)

“I know we said we were going to wait to get a dog… but you have just got to see this puppy! He is so cute! He’s black, and really furry, and he has huge paws… and floppy ears… can we get him? Puh-leassse???” (Oh no, this wasn’t going like I had planned!!!)

“Will you at least go back with me later to look at him?” (Compromise and negotiate! Always make the other guy feel like he’s gaining something!)

“Okay, I promise I will never bring it up again… if you just go with me tonight to see him. I mean it, never again. If you say no… then the answer is no. That’s fine with me.” (He’s softening – yessssss!)

These are what we came home with that night!!!

Well… mostly surprises!

On any given day… an unknown host of variables bombard my plans, and render any hope for my anticipation, well… useless! (I am the very busy mother of 4 crazy kids, and the queen of multi-tasking!)

My intention though… is to bring a new light, and life, to the happenings of the town I call home.

Check back often to find new and exciting things that are happening in and around town in historic downtown Plainfield, Illinois! Consider me your host on a guided tour of Plainfield.

Follow me as I explore, and report back, on the many experiences that this town has to offer, like child-friendly dining, family activities, new home construction and local builders, issues in the Plainfield school district 202, topics that face the community… and all the crazy stuff that happens to me along the way!
