Today's post is about a ghost still waiting for her loved one to come back to her. This story takes place at the Hotel Galvez. The Hotel Galvez is the home to many spirits and I have a feeling we will be discussing some of its inhabitants again at a later date but one of their most famous spirits is that of Audra. Audra was a 25-year-old beautiful woman who used to frequent the hotel.
With Valentine's Day this week, I wanted to focus on stories of ghosts that show love lasts long after death. There is no way that I could have romantic stories this week and not include my favorite spirit love story. I have mentioned this story before in an earlier post but I only briefly told the story.

I like seeing how many facts actually made it in the book or the script and how much is just Hollywood fluff that is written just to get you to spend some money. The second reason is because I wanted to have an excuse to finally watch the movie that I am writing about in this post. I have never seen The Exorcist.
When most people think of fairies, we think of Tinkerbell like creatures- tiny human-like beings with long, wings that are either rainbow colored or clear. Most often these kinds of fairies are depicted as white. While most stories of fairies do come from English, French, Celtic, Slavic and German folklore, tales of fairies have been… Continue reading Fare Thee Well My Fairy Folk
When Jeremy and I first moved to Champaign, people told us to watch out for Effingham. We assumed it was for the speed traps on the interstate by the rest area or all the construction. Nope, that was just part of what we should have been warned about. Turns out that in Effingham there are werewolves, warlocks, spirits and something else entirely weird prowling around. When Jeremy and I found out what all was going on down there, we had to go check it out ourselves.
