I am a transplant to the Triangle area of North Carolina and I love it. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and living in Detroit, MI for over 16 years, I have been a big-city girl my entire life. Now, however, I live a quieter life at a slower pace and am thankful for every moment.I value the opinions of my readers. Please share them with me! You can contact me via my Facebook page.A few people have asked me how to pronounce my last name: it's "sid-lak".
