About Your Blogger: Cari Discovers Illinois

Hey Folks-

I’m Cari Rincker.  I’m an attorney with an office in Downtown Champaign.  I’m originally from Shelbyville, Illinois, a small town about 1.5 hours south of Champaign and Springfield. I grew up on a beef cattle farm showing cattle through 4-H and FFA.  I spent my summers walking beans and bailing hay and the rest of the year playing sports.  I zig zagged across the country for school and ended up living in New York City for 10 years.

After living on the East Coast for a decade,  decided to move home to be closer to family and to have a change of lifestyle.  I bought a small horse farm called “Cari’s Farm” outside of Champaign near Bondville.  I have chickens and a beautiful dog named, Kennedy.  A year ago, I was on the Upper West Side in Manhattan and now I live on my 3 acres learning to garden and hanging out in dog parks.

It’s been a breath of fresh air and a welcomed change of pace.  Moving home has been an adventure so far and with hopefully more to come.

I want this blog to serve as a way for me to document my journey home and to highlight some of the great things this state has to over.  I welcome recommendations, feedback, and discovery partners!
