Shane and I both grew up in Connecticut and have both lived in various CT towns throughout our respective childhoods and young adult lives (technically Shane defected to CO for a spell). After my employer announced the move of its headquarters to New Haven, Shane and I began searching for the perfect place to move our family. I wanted a hobby farm, and Shane wanted to be in a shoretown. We found our home in North Guilford and couldn't be happier.
In addition to our children, Collin, Quin, and Kate, we share our home with a variety of animals, ranging from axolotls to pony mules. Our yard also hosts numerous species of wildlife. Walking through the yard, it's not uncommon to spy shorebirds that stop by our pond, curious red-tailed hawks, whitetailed deer, red fox, coyotes, raccoons, oppossums, skunks, and a very robust wild rabbit population. We have seen them all enjoying our yard or the landtrust at some point or another.
