Lewes, Delaware has been home, full time, for the past year 1/2, however, prior to that we owned and investment property, making it easy to enjoy the area very often. Over the last 13 years of visiting, it became clear that "the beach" was the place for us, so we moved here full-time and are so happy we did.
Prior to our move here, we lived in and raised our family in Nazareth, Pa. A quaint little town, that of course, exploded in popularity over the past 20 years. While my sons were growing up I took a job as an assistant teacher and soon realized how much I enjoyed working with students with special needs, which then led to five years of teaching students with autism, which were some of the best years of my life.
As someone who's owned property here for so many years I know that growth will continue because Sussex County is a wonderful place thanks to great beaches, history lessons and the vacation-like atmosphere we enjoy all year long.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention growing up in Warren, New Jersey, which was and hopefully still is a great place to live.
