Stacy Happy Holidays Sharon!!!!!!!!!


Sharon Hart-Green Nice to connect! I was born and raised in Toronto, but moved to Boston for several years to attend grad school. But I'm back now and enjoying being in the city where I was raised.
Do you live in the UK? I was in London and Aberdeen recently and had a grand time!
