After my husband and I had baby #2, we thought it was time to leave our 2-bedroom apartment in NJ (and daily commute to NYC) for a house, yard, work nearby and the beauty of Oxford, CT. We've never looked back. The babies are now teenagers and we've since added baby #3 (now 10), 2 dogs and a snake. As a family we like to hike, kayak, ski and snowboard. Individually, we enjoy book reading, karate, swimming, baseball, softball, performing in school plays, scouting and horseback riding (not all at once). Life is good.
