For those of you who read my blog before, you know me as the MA-holding, Chicago-loving, Denver-based blogger who rode her bike and talked semi-professionally about architecture and historic preservation. While some of that is still true, I no longer live in Denver. After moving back to my hometown of Elgin, Illinois I took some time off from blogging for a variety of reasons but mainly that I felt exasperated about leaving Colorado. After talking with my good friend, artist, art teacher, and fellow Elgin-native, Maddie Richmond, we both realized how many amazing things Elgin had to offer, even if too often our hometown is overlooked. Situated along the Fox River, this “City in the Suburbs” is about to get some much-deserved, and overdue, attention in the blog-o-sphere by two of its coolest residents.
