The prompt this week: My First Home
I decided to start from the beginning and show you the homes I grew up in Illinois. This house is the house I was born into. We lived there until I started kindergarten. This was in North Riverside, IL.
Then from kindergarten until the day I got married I lived in this house. It was also in North Riversdie, IL and just a block from my grade school which was K-8th grade.
Mark and I bought a townhouse in Bolingbrook, IL when we got married. I would have to do some digging to get a picture of it. At that time they called them quadminiums back then. There were four units in a building.
This was our first house purchase and this is the home our children were raised until we were divorced. The house back when we owned it was done in the beige and brown Tudor colors. This home was around 80 years old when we bought it around 1978. It had original cove moldings at the ceilings. It was lovely and is in Western Springs, IL.
After we divorced I sold our home and got a quadminium in Clarendon Hill, IL. (same type of building like Bolingbrook) Our entrance was under the balcony and that's our garage door you see in this photo.
Our unit was above all the garages. You walked in the door and went upstairs. We could enter from the garage too! The kids and I lived there for about 5 years before we moved to California and were reunited with Mark.
