Q: What is your favorite part about living in Buffalo?  

A: It’s truly hard to pick a favorite, but one thing I love about the region is getting to experience all four seasons (even though winter tends to carry over into spring more than we’d like!). I think fall and summer in Buffalo are especially hard to beat.

A: I’m spending more time outside – going for long walks, riding bikes, and rollerblading.  

Q: Since you are no longer commuting to work, how do you fill your drive time? 

A: In the morning, I take more time to enjoy breakfast and prep for the dayPost-work, I like to try to get out of the house right away and take advantage of the daylight.
