I am originally from FL but I live in Upstate NY. I love the seasons up here and I don't miss the FL heat. I do miss the beaches. I am married, have 2 cats (Astrid and Mabel), am a vegetarian, and have a Ph.D. in (Particle) Physics. I knit, crochet, sew, make jewelry, cook, and bake. I love this website because it has given me so many great ideas.
