Hello-welcome to my blog! I am so honored that you clicked on me and that Wednesday Journal asked me to be a part of something SO wonderful, SO Oak Park, SO needed in our amazing village! How perfect! But am I worthy? Basically when I started thinking about “What do I have to say about Oak Park ” the ideas were ENDLESS! The entry bio that was written about me (yikes-I’m effervescent? I looked it up….to bubble, hiss, foam….show liveliness or exhilaration) was intimidating… the prior entry compared me to Mr. Rogers (not sure who scratched that/switched it to effervescent) I hope I live up to OP’s standards!

I am referring to my blog as a blop….it happened by accident (typo!) and now I think it’s appropriate since I am new to this!

From the coolest things I love about Oak Park to the most dreaded….I am sure that you will help me navigate through the good, bad & ugly. Oak Park’s bottom line? The way I see it: coOPeration!

Thanks for reading!  Stay tuned for my BOOP (Best Of Oak Park) and WOOP (Worst Of Oak Parkl) Awards!

p.s. Guess which Oak Park landmarks those letters are shot from!
