Although born and raised in New Jersey, I have called the Lehigh Valley home in one way or another for the last two decades. I arrived in the Lehigh Valley as an undergraduate student at Lehigh University, which was followed by graduate school at Lehigh. After a brief stint living overseas, including time in my husband's homeland, Cyprus, we decided to return to Pennsylvania with our young son. We planned to move back to Bethlehem, where we had met, but our search for a place to live in the Bethlehem area proved extremely difficult. Then, the Fates smiled on us, connecting us to a new Realtor who brought us to a lovely townhouse in the borough of Emmaus. It didn't take us long to realize that Emmaus was the perfect place for us. Now, five years and a second son later, we live in Vera Cruz and are simply thrilled to call Emmaus home.
