Welcome to SAS, Liz! It's very nice to meet you, too! I'm Jenn, a fairly new designer here, and SAHM to my little guy who just turned 2. I'm originally from NY myself (born & raised in Central NY), but since DH is military, we now live in Virginia.
Please make yourself right at home here, and feel free to jump right in! I just posted the new Gallery Spotlight Challenge
which runs through the end of the month, and would love for you to participate
There's numerous other challenges going on right now, too!
See you around the site!
