I was born in GA and moved to CA right after that. Ended up in St. Louis for @ 5 yrs. Dad then got transfered to Chicago and worked for Sears in the Sears Tower , the tallest building in the world! I was a teen in Chicago burbs (Downers Grove) and married a boy whose job was relocated to Heber Springs in '81. Divorced him and was single in LR for @ 10 yrs. Bored yet? Re-married 7 yrs ago and moved to Maumelle. My husband works in one of the skyscrapers in LR and I stay at home with my 2 boys, 3 and 5. OK, now I'm bored! Sorry to go on but I've had quite the journey to get here!
