Mother's Day is one of the most important days of the year for all of us, and we want to give you an opportunity to show your Mom just how special she really is to you!

We have created a special "Mother's Day" board on our Pinterest & Facebook page just for this very special day, dedicated to MOMS! All you need to do is submit YOUR favorite photo of you and your Mom along with a short paragraph- no more than 250 words- about what makes your Mom so special. Then email it to me: roseprice@champaignrose.com

On Saturday, May 7th I will select 2 finalist, based on their submissions and award a Gift Card to each winner.  You can then use this with your Mothers toward brunch, golf, shopping or whatever the two of you would like to spend time doing together!

So get writing and find your best photo....email it into me....and make Mom the center of attention like she so greatly deserves!

11 Small Towns Where Everyone Knows Your Name

by Rose Price

Is there anything better than walking into your local coffee shop and having the barista write your name on the cup without having to ask you? Ok ok, I get that this may seem trivial, but you do have to admit it is a wonderful feeling when the locals in your community all know you.  This month onlyinyourstate.com published a list about “11 small towns where everyone knows your name” in Illinois, and we were thrilled to see Tuscola and Monticello, two towns in our community, named!

But what makes these towns so special? 

The list is as follows:

  1. Clarendon Hills, located outside of Chicago in Dupage County.

  2. Casey, known for its large construction projects.

  3. Cherry Valley, located in Boone County with a population of 3,000.

  4. Winchester, located in Scott County and known for its gorgeous courthouse.

  5. TUSCOLA, located in Scott County, and is our backyard, and known for its great outlet mall. Click here to view current homes for sale in Tuscola.
