Is something organic if it is shipped across the country? What about the fuel that is used and how that affects our environment, not to mention the freshness of the food and a myriad of other factors. Over the last few years i have been reading everything i can get my hands on to help me answer these and other questions so sit back, relax and explore where my quest has taken me thus far.

From city mouse to country mouse?

Church Street Market Place, Burlington, VT
So this little mousey family is moving out of Brooklyn in 2 days.  Where are we going you might be asking?  We are moving to the great wild north of Burlington Vermont.  We found a great place right on the main drag and also have the convenience of being in the middle of the countryside within minutes, completely a win win for us! 

I have decided that I do not like packing and hope to only have to do it once or twice more in my LIFETIME!  Our life is currently in shambles with boxes, furniture and crap strewn about, we are quickly running out of room to do even simple things like sit down and watch a little tele.  Two more days, just two more days and we are blowing this popsicle stand!  Good bye Brooklyn, good bye over abundance of dust, good bye to moving the car every day to avoid getting a ticket, good bye strange, unhappy and just plain crazy people.  Good bye to it all.

Do I regret moving here?  Not at all, this place has taught me many life lessons which I will always hold close to my heart.  While here I got engaged and married to the man of my dreams, I started a company which I am deeply passionate about and am enjoying watching it grow as if it were a child. I enhanced my current career and feel that I can take it even further with my new found perspective.  Outside of the working world I found a love for writing, cooking and farmers markets which I doubt I would have found elsewhere.  My husband has become an exceptional cook and inspires me to compete with him which is fun and stretches my creative abilities as well as my pallet. 

All in all it's been a fun ride, but I am ready to get off this roller coaster and enjoy life at a bit of a slower pace for while.  Burlington will be an exciting new adventure which will take me to new heights in life that I cannot wait to experience. 

Until next time my friends
