My name is Joanne. My life has revolved being a freelance photographer for the past 20 plus years in NYC. After the birth of our daughter Lulu, my partner Rocky and I both decided that it was time for a change of scenery to raise our kid. Rocky was brought up on a farm, he thought it will be great if Lulu can experience a kind of freedom that we couldn’t offer her from Midtown Manhattan. So here were are now in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. Our move happened very spontaneously without much of a plan. I said adios to our little apartment off Time Square and didn’t look back. We recently have purchased a little grandma house with challenging amount of work. Our goal is to bring the house to livable condition, able to have a garden that will provide all of our produce and raise chicken, snail and fish for protein. A 180 from living a few blocks away from Time Square. We still have a long way before we reach our goal. Hopefully we will not go nutty before that.
