I am originally from Maine. You know that place with the famous blue sign, “The way life should be.” I never ever thought I would leave the small state but I truly believe life lead me away so that I would truly appreciate where I am from. Maine is slower, colder and way different than any state I have ever been but the people are genuine, friendly and truly love their great state. When I visit during the holidays or Summer, I truly appreciate every minute.
I moved to South Florida about 14 years ago. What was supposed to be a 2 year hiatus soon became a good job, palm trees, warm weather and no snow. 2 weeks after moved to South Florida I applied for a job that I found in the newspaper for a large financial services company and stayed there for ……yes 14 years. As you can probably guess, I don’t like change much. The 2 year hiatus where I agreed to move to warm weather but only to a place where I had family. That city was Fort Lauderdale. Soon after we got to sunny Florida, my significant other decided it wasn’t for him but because I am the type to stick to what I commit to, I stayed. That 2 years has turned quickly into 14 and here I am.
