From Open Space to Open Hearts...
Loving Stories that have risen from LLA

ANGIE

When I think of Angie Robertson I think REAL! This super no nonsense mom tells it like it is and we had such a blast with the girls in Jen’s Saturday Zumbini class! Angie has been working on Chicago’s First Dog Park on Southwest Side and she also just told me she knows how to knit...what? Something I have always wanted to learn to do!! Hi beautiful Winter! You rock.

GWEN

When I think of Gwen Washington I think LOVE!  From the moment I met her and her oh so comforting momma I felt and feel the love to this day.  Even with her extremely busy schedule Gwen is always willing to discuss new ideas, what has worked and how to improve on what we do or just talk.  Thank you Gwen for your support, belief and just being you.  Please see

Hugs always and can't wait to see you soon!!

JEN

When I think of Jen Majerus I think PASSION!  Her passion for educating children and families, her passion for music and movement and her passion for life!  I immediately felt how much she cares about her own amazing family, teaching her wonderful Zumbini classes and working at her family's super fun Tiki Hut on the Chicago River! I know she loves it all.  I feel so honored to have met Jen and work with her through LLA and I am so lucky to also have her as a neighbor!

CHRISTINE

When I think of Christine Boye I think SINCERE!  I met Christine very early on in LLA's life and she remains a dear friend, an honest support, and a true confidant to this day.   This amazing mother manages her family, multiple businesses and passions seemingly effortlessly and wholeheartedly.  I love how she is willing to try just about any idea that may help families, generously giving of her time and knowledge.  On top of it all she has an infectious smile and the singing voice of an angle!!  Please see https://www.facebook.com/greenhealthygorgeous/ and https://www.facebook.com/youareenoughdoula/

I'm so glad we found each other Christine!  See you soon!!
