What brought you to the Triangle area and keeps you here?

My oldest son has been living here for 3 years. Each time I came to visit I fell in love with the area. I just moved here on January 20, 2014 and I am looking for new friends, things to do, and at least a part time job. I like the fact that I am only 2 hours from the ocean and 3 hours from the mountains. The weather is better than in New England and I love all of the beautiful trees and flowers.

What is your favorite kind of food and restaurant in this area?

I really like Italian food and have found Carrabas enjoyable.

What countries or USA state(s) have you lived in?

I have lived in Illinois, Colorado, Arizona, New York and Connecticut.

What does 2nd Half (being 50+) mean to you?

I am 57 with a lot of life left to live. I want to meet people in my age range and believe that we will have more in common due to life experience.

What kind of adventures and socials do you like and can plan to do with 2nd Half?

I love to hike, fish, bird watch, dance, and eat at nice restaurants.

Introduction

Hi my name is Carla and I just retired from Phoenix Life Insurance Company in Hartford CT. I worked there for 21 years and my main responsibilities were in the Corporate Compliance Department as an Assistant Vice President and Sr Compliance Officer.

What Carla R. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was my first one and cannot comment on the overall but from what I saw today I know that I will be having fun, going new places and meeting new friends.
