We’re the Boehringers (pronounced Beringer…like the wine)! A year ago, my husband’s job brought us from Baton Rouge to the smaller town of Alexandria located in Central Louisiana. When we say we moved to Alexandria for a job, most people can’t believe it. The most common response is “Alexandria!? I’m so sorry…,” or “When are you moving back?” In the beginning, our first response would have been “ASAP!,” but after being here for a year we can honestly say we’ve grown to really like it. Instead of dwelling on the fact that we had to leave our friends and family behind, we decided to make the most of it. If you have a negative outlook, then you will be miserable and have a bad time – end of story.
