Hi everyone,<br><br>
My name is Alex and I just wanted to introduce myself. I've been veg*n since I was about 10, and while I'm still a vegetarian, I am trying to move towards a more vegan diet.<br><br>
I just moved to Georgia with my husband (also my high school sweetheart) our 2 cats and dog, and we are all in the process of getting used to life in the south. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I grew up moving all over the place but spent the most time in Florida, Brazil (where my parents are both from), and Colorado. I like to surf, sing and dance, and just experience new, fun things. I'm also hoping to start a law degree next year and would like to focus on either environmental or international law.<br><br>
Umm...I guess that's me in a nutshell. I guess if you want to know more, just ask! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Hope to see you all around!

Hello and welcome.<br><br>

Wishing you good luck with your recent move and plans on becoming a Vegan.

LSG - it'll be interesting that you tell us all about how you manage to settle down. Will you be working ?<br><br>
Alton Brown lives in Marietta, Georgia. Prehaps you'll bump into him during your shopping sprees.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

Really? I didn't know that about Alton Brown! We live just on the outskirts of Marietta, so I'll make sure to hit up the Whole Foods in town and try to run into him. That would be so cool! And while we're at it, we can take a drive to the coast and see Paula Deen. She seems like she would be a fun person to hang out with too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I'm lucky in that the company I worked for in Colorado offered to let me work at home, so now that I have internet set up I can do that. I had already been training a replacement at my old job so I was really shocked when they asked (my boss brought it up on my last day, lol). I am definately counting myself lucky that I don't have to search for a job in this economy though.

Fantastic. That certainly is an advantage not having to search for a new job in a new place. Tell us all about Marietta when you get settled in.
