I am an active mom of (now) three surviving life in the Fairfield County burbs. I lived in NYC for over 12 years, and spent my last six living in DUMBO, Brooklyn. My husband and I experienced the ups and downs of juggling 2 little ones (and all the gear that comes with them) in the city. We have a lot of amazing memories, and will forever cherish them and the friends we made there.
When my oldest was around 4 1/2 years old, we decided it was time to made the trek out to Connecticut. It’s been an adventure living here, and was a challenge at times during our transition. However, now a year and half into it, I couldn’t imagine any other place to raise my kids.
And it’s not just about the kids either, my husband and I have really made a wonderful life together in our new town. We are now homeowners and a two car family. Our third was born New Year’s Eve, and we’re experiencing life with a baby for the first time in the burbs. We have also made some pretty cool friends here, and are having a lot of fun in our winetaster’s group this year.
We still love all that NYC has to offer, and continue to go back to visit friends in Brooklyn as often as possible. We’ll always heart you, Brooklyn. But for now our home is here in the CT burbs. Thanks for following my journey. Happy reading.
