My name is April and last year, my husband and I moved from Orlando, FL into the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. My Grandpap built this cabin and both he and my Grandmother have passed away. When my Dad started talking about selling this place, I was heartbroken -- and so we decided to buy it and keep it in the family.
It has been a great deal of work, because this home was not lived in since 2001 or 2002. It has been a wonderful experience so far, though -- and I am loving learning about new plants that are native to this zone. MUCH different than Florida!
Erich and I have 3 cats: Bubba, Mousey, and Chuppy; we have an English Shepherd: Avery; and we have a lovebird: Bird. Yes... a cat named Mouse and a bird named Bird ~ hahahah :) I used to have a fish named Sushi -- but he died.
As for 2 legged babies -- we don't have any yet, but we're planning to one day soon.

**UPDATE May 2010**
We moved back to Florida... YAY!! We've kept the cabin, but are planning to rent it. The winters were simply too harsh for us and we really missed "civilization". We're closing on a house here in Central Florida in a couple of weeks and I am the most excited about having "my own dirt" again -- I can't wait to jump right in and get my hands dirty!
Since I created this profile 2 years ago, we've lost both Bubba and Mousey to old age and cancer... RIP my babies. We also adopted a lovely little Yorkie named Bella and a baby kitten Named Sammy. No 2 legged babies yet... still workin' ;)
