Are you excited? If you found me, you are most likely thinking of moving to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and/or starting a business. I remember the excitement, anticipation and concerns about relocating. Therefore, I try to convey "slice of life" moments with photo-blogs and single photo uploads to assist you in getting a "real feel".
