I moved to the Garden State from Alabama about six months ago. I know, this statement is the epitome of conversation starters.

Things are different here, obviously. But (mostly) in a good way. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of good about the deep South, from the hospitality and graciousness of the people to the ease of life and reasonable cost of living.

But the Garden State? I am head over heels, people!

NJ SEED: As we embark on the holiday season, it seems appropriate to read the words of a new arrival who appreciates the many great things about the Garden State. It’s a spirit lifter.
