First off, let me say that Mary Lamphere does NOT go by Mary Fran or Mary Frances.
She was running out of blog title options and went with a play on her name.
(MaryFranSays = Mary Frances)
So unless she’s in trouble, please, just call her Mary.
Mary Lamphere is happily married to her college (the first time) sweetheart and lives in DeKalb, IL. Her children are grown and out of the house AND BOTH MARRIED. 2013 was quite a year. She keeps her mothering skills up-to-date with two Pembroke Corgis. (We lost Sweet Nellie in January 2017.) And she’s honing her gramma skills with her adorable grandson, Benjamin.
She loves to travel and has been to several very interesting and exciting places all over the world. She also enjoys the White Sox, the Blackhawks and now that Cutler is gone, she looks forward to enjoying the Bears again.
When she’s not touring Ireland, she spends her time writing novels, walking dogs and cheering Chicago sports teams.
