“I will never forget the first time I drove into the Valley, my car loaded with my belongings as I transplanted my life from Texas to Northampton. I was completely awestruck by the wide-open beauty of the Valley’s fields, farms, and hillsides. Fifteen years later, it is still something I hold so dear and appreciate every day now that I have settled and started a family here.”
