lani stache1 Hi, I’m Lani, a relocated Yankee  living in Cary, NC who is new to the area, new to being a stay-at-home-mom, new to owning a mortgage home, and new to living in a suburb…and new to blogging! As I find my way about town, and in life, I will fill you in with any tips that will hopefully make your relocation and life here in Cary easier AWESOME.

When we made the decision to move out of Central California we didn’t know where we would go. So we began asking everyone (friends, colleagues, strangers, etc.) where they would move to if they could, where they had visited that they loved, and even where they had heard the worst places to live would be. That was actually the best question because normally everyone has a bad experience with something somewhere, but in this case, not North Carolina.

So we researched this place far far away and realized that North Carolina is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. Then we researched more and found that CARY is the BEST place to live. So we moved. To Cary.

Well, we actually visited first, because neither of us had ever stepped foot in this state. We even visited during July because we wanted to see if it would be too hot for us. (And it was pretty dang hot, but we figure this is why air-conditioning, ice, and swimming pools were invented.) Then we moved. To Cary.

We have been here for 2 years now and love it. The hubs and I know without a doubt making the move to Cary was the best decision we ever made for our family.

My hope that with this blog I’ll provide you with the info you need to make the move too. I’ll be the stranger friend who you can ask “Why Cary?”.

And for those of you who made the move just like us (yes, almost the entire population of Cary..they don’t call it the Containment Area for nuttin’), I hope that I can provide some insight into making your life even more AWESOME than it is. Or at least help you find &*%# because as you know (or will find out): strict signage laws + abundance of trees = lost people.

Peace out- Lani
