Hi DE moms!  I am a Jersey girl who is highly anticipating a relocation to DE.  Dad and the BFF have already beaten me down there and I have officially picked a move date and am counting down.

I am a mom of three grown children and a young, sassy grandmom to a precious 4 year old granddaughter.


I will be frequenting these posts and relying on all you wonderful DE gals to get me going on the right path to a great DE relo!


I want to know where I should live, what I can expect from my business plans and where older but young hearted ladies like me can find a social life! 


I look forward to all of your input!!


-Jen from Jerzy
