Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Getting closer to Family

 I grew up in Michigan and by the time I was 25 had had enough of the cold winters.  While I loved to play in the snow as a child, snowsuits were no longer proper attire, and hats make my hair staticy.  I was working as a restaurant manager for one of the big chains at the time and requested to be relocated "south".  When asked if I had a specific southern state in mind, I replied "North Carolina."  My little brother had moved to Chapel Hill years before and I had visited and fallen in love with the city.

My request for a "southern" transfer was approved, however, NC wasn't available and I landed in Virginia Beach.  I figured since it was a popular vacation spot, it should be warm enough for me.

My brother and his family have since moved to Raleigh and Hubby and I have had several conversations about relocating to that area.  It is the placeto be for business and the schools are top notch. makes it easy to find a raleigh realtor and I often find myself looking for agents handling Raleigh properties in my brother's neighborhood.  While we probably won't be moving this year, I would love to be closer to MY family and have the kiddies grow up with their cousins like I did.
