Southern Living

My life began in Detroit, Michigan where I was born and lived till I was about 6 years old. My dad got a job with IBM in New York and we relocated there. I was essentially raised in Woodstock, NY from age 6 and I stayed in upstate NY until I was 22 years old. In my teen rebellious years I did live in Arizona with Grandma but didn't stay long enough to call it home.
Raleigh has become a place I can finally call home- we have been here for 10 years and it is where I began my family. My daughter is a true "southern belle" and I am so blessed that we were able to settle here. What is so awesome about this area is that we are surrounded by so much to do. We are 2 hours from the Ocean and beaches, 2 hours from the mountains, and in the center of a thriving city that has so much to offer.
