peoria, il

i went to visit my grandmother this weekend, she currently lives in peoria. everything is vast, with long stretches of field and rolling hills, everything is cold and snow covered, kind of a beautifully bleak atmosphere.
my dad's family grew up in illnois, along the mississippi river, it's ironic or perhaps fitting that my mother, her family, and i grew up along the mississippi river, too, albeit in louisiana and mississippi.

emo's, the closed ice cream joint.

view from mimi's hospital window, you can barely see tree tops covered in snow

mama in peoria

obviously, this was the favorite spot in the hotel room
