    New from IL

    Hi and Wow,
    I guess I didn't know how many people the Disney magic has captured. Well, count me in. I've been to the park (now parks) many times as a child and a few when i got older, and can't wait to go back. Our best family vacation memories are Disney, bar none. My mom thinks I'm a little nuts about it, but I was imprinted with it, just like a baby duck. She went to Disneyland as a teenager and it really didn't capture her imagination, so there's no accounting for taste.

    I have some cute pics from back then that I might post, and some really funny memories, but I'm a little nervous about posting a couple, since my uncle had a rather loose view on the ride rules.

    As for me, I'm a social worker/therapist and live in Northern IL. Right now I work with people who have cancer, but am planning on going back to school and getting my PhD. I also teach college classes on the side and I love it. I have a cute little doggie, who's my avitar, and his formal name is "Motif's Helpin' Cinderellee", or Gus for short. Glad to be joining up with such a great, positive bunch of folks.

    Thanks! For Halloween, he was a pirate, and as you can tell, he loved it.

    Welcome Leah! Are you from the west or east side of Illinois. I hail from the Quad Cities.
    I'm from Rockford, mostly known as the last city before Wisconsin. I think back in the day I had some relatives from the Moline area, I'd have to ask my Mom.

    Nice to meet someone so close!

    It's good to have fellow Illinoisans (if thats a word) on the boards. I'm from the northern/central Illinois area. A bit south of Aurora (the town, not Sleeping Beauty, lol)
