Hello all! Usually I am so inspired to write, but always at the WRONG times! I get my best inspiration during my long drives to teach in my hometown of New Rochelle or to a performance in Westchester or NYC! I should probably get a tape recorder. Now that I actually have time to sit and write, let me tell you what has been going on in the busy life of mine. As most of you have already read in past articles I have a CRAZY life. I am a mother of 3 boys moved to NW CT from lower Westchester NY but still have most of my business ties there. I travel back and forth at least 1x a week to teach bellydance, perform at various locations or both! I am currently going for my CT real estate license while trying to set up new classes in my area of CT and starting my own event planning company while being a stay at home mom! Phew just saying it out load leaves me breathless! People ask me all the time why my husband and I decided to move so far. It is just far enough to change the environment we wanted to raise our kids. They still have a bit of city spunk, but in a more rural atmosphere. They are exposed to a more easy going way of living. Not so rushed or stressed. There is plenty of nature around us to keep us exploring our part of CT for years to come. Hiking, boating, fishing, biking, crafts, farms…endless! It is not so far away where we can not make it to family with in a little over an hour. My husband and I go back and forth as to which lifestyle suits us best. On one hand we are nature lovers and love outdoors activities. On the other we still are very much a part of the NYC nightlife! I guess for now our roots are here doing what is best for the family and our hearts take us to NYC when ever possible.
